Acclaimed design & tech event to be held May 18-20 at PNCA and Revolution Hall
Jeffry Veen calls WebVisions “the crunchy granola cousin of SXSW”, and since 2001, the conference has explored the future or web and mobile design, user experience, technology and strategy. This year, leading experts and visionaries will come to Portland to share their ideas for the future at PNCA and Revolution Hall.
Douglas Rushkoff’s new book “Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus” just hit the bookstores, and it investigates how the demand for growth is impacting our companies and the economy. Rushkoff is an inspiring leader in the digital community, and he’ll deliver the closing keynote at the show.
Indie game designer Nina Freeman recently launched Cibele, her new game based on a true story about love, sex and the Internet. She’ll give a talk on “How to Develop Indie Games with Tiny Teams in Your Spare Time”.
Mark Wyner’s Friday morning keynote on “A New Dawn of the Human Experience” will explore the connection and fabricated empathy that we feel toward machines.
Leo Frishkoff is touting a new book on “Presumptive Design” and will share techniques for this in his workshop “Create First, Research Later! Presumptive Design: An ‘Action First’ Research Technique”.
In his direct and revealing workshop, Aaron Draplin shares secrets of creating awesome design and will regale audiences with “Tall Tales from a Large Man”.
Design renegade Mike Monteiro isn’t holding back punches when he delivers his opening keynote on “This is the Golden Age of Design! …and We’re Screwed”.
