Future of Web Design Conference
Next week I will be attending the Future of Web Design conference in New York City. This event brings together the best website folks in the world to talk about where things are going in the world of web design.
As someone who is always looking to stay ahead of the curve, I am very much looking forward to rubbing shoulders (or at least being in the same room) with some of the designers I admire and getting their opinion on where they see websites going in coming years. Of particular interest to me will be Paul Boag’s talk on “Educating clients to say yes”. One of the great challenges I have found over the last several years is having clients understand the difference between professional website design (from both a visual and a technical standpoint) and something they put together in their spare time. And Paul also produces the Boagworld podcast, which I always find informative and well thought out (and was one of the reasons why I started the Tunnel 7 podcast).
After next week I will be much smarter than I am today. And I’ll look forward to putting what I learn to work!
