Designing Your Perfect Conference Experience: HOW Design Live 2014

A living room decorated with beloved family antiques and modern pieces from Ikea. A brand-new pair of jeans and your favorite 20-year-old boots. Ever notice how the old and the new blend to create something altogether awesome?

Our HOW Design Live colleagues had that “something old, something new” mantra in mind when they assembled the program for this year’s event.

What’s new at HOW Design Live 2014? Plenty:

  • A fifth program, the HOW Leadership Conference, helmed by Debbie Millman, joins the HOW Design Conference, the InHouse Management Conference, the Dieline Conference and the Creative Freelancer Business Conference.
  • A totally new schedule that aligns every session in every time slot across all 5 conference programs
  • A high-profile keynote session series that brings together the entire HOW Design Live audience every day
