HOW Conference 2009

The HOW Conference is headed to Austin June 24-27!

Bonus for designers who refer their friends:

Designers who refer a friend or colleague to register for the conference can get their hands on $100 worth of HOW products, just for spreading the word. Those friends and colleagues simply indicate on the online registration form that they were referred by another designer. (The $100 is valid for any HOW product, including events, magazines, books, webinars and competition entry fees.) Find more information here:

Party theme announced:

The theme for Friday night party is, appropriately enough, Keep Austin Weird. Judging by past parties, folks will be dressing to the nines in all kinds of crazy getups. Designers looking to build their wardrobes specifically for the bash can check out the many vintage stores in Austin, including:
Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds
Hog Wild Texas Vintage
Blue Velvet Vintage
New Bohemia Retro Resale
Uncommon Objects

Bringing the conference home:

Following the 2008 HOW Conference in Boston, first-time attendee and Conference forum contributor Kelly Parke forwarded us something cool she’d created. She found the Conference experience so inspiring that she wanted to share it with her colleague—and also to show her managers that their investment was worthwhile. She developed an extensive PDF documenting her HOW experience in a really terrific way. Kelly will be hosting an informal breakfast roundtable on Thursday morning to help designers share what they learn at HOW with their bosses and co-workers in the most beneficial way.
