HOW Design Conference

Thursday, May 15

11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Designers and Communication: The Past and Present

Ballroom C   Level 3

Get an encouraging confirmation of why attending HOW Design Live is so important to your creativity. In this session, Riley Cran will present a look at the close-knit nature of creative communities, and how historically they have used technology to communicate a message to the world—and to each other—and to push the boundaries of their craft. Examples will be drawn from Riley’s own experiences managing The Lost Type Co-Op, a collaborative type foundry which has involved more than 50 designers from around the world, as well as the relationships between some of history’s most admired and celebrated creative minds.

3 Main Take-Aways:

  1. The creative mind needs input, and has historically sought the respect and feedback of other creative minds
  2. Designers regularly take advantage of the latest technologies for their communication
  3. In the end, our work is improved by collaboration, mentorship and association with our fellow creatives
