HOW Design Live
HOW Design Live is the biggest annual gathering of creative professionals, anywhere. The 2014 event, May 12 – 16 in Boston, is your chance to explore the biggest ideas, meet your design heroes, and learn from the smartest minds—all in one five-day design extravaganza.
You’ll learn from innovative thinkers like Malcolm Gladwell, Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Maria Popova and others for inspiring keynotes, hands-on workshops and nuts-and-bolts sessions. You’ll also find unrivalled networking opportunities, from Breakfast Roundtables to the Portfolio Review and the legendary Closing Party. Along the way, you’ll find yourself a part of the welcoming design community that makes HOW Design Live the career-boosting, creativity-expanding and even life-changing experience it is.
