Justin Ahrens: Put Your Money Where Your Heart Is

HDL-BannerHOW Design Live begins on Monday! Time flew by fast! There’s still time to get your ticket into the conference. We’re looking forward to being in the Windy City and hearing design experts discuss essential design topics, career advice and current trends.

Last year at HOW Design Live, Justin Ahrens, Principal of Rule29, gave a great talk titled “Put Your Money Where Your Heart Is.” In it, he focused on how to select the right projects to catapult design careers to the next level, and how to avoid ones that bog careers down. He discussed some of his past failures as examples of what not to do. He then explained how a designer may follow their passions and still be a profitable designer.

Ahrens will return to HOW Design Live this year for his talk, “Why Can Culture Be More Important that Your Creative.”
