Hey, great news everyone.... Pivotal Labs is sponsoring the first Information Design Meetup! They have been kind enough to not only let us use their awesome office space in Union Sq. to host the event, but they're also providing snacks and drinks.
We're going to have two amazing information designers presenting along with Q&A, and we'll also be diving into a bit of the @visualized conference that we're planning for November in NYC.
Presenting on Tuesday, June 19:
- Deroy Perza, Principal & Creative Director of Hyperakt.
Hyperakt is an independent design company based in Carroll Gardens, where they focus on creating meaningful design for the common good. I've personally been a fan of Hyperakt's work after walking past their studio and admiring their design. It is great to have Deroy walk through the creative process they use for designing information from start to finish.
