HOW Conference Roundup: Selling Creativity, Design Currency and More

  • August 21, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • The Creative Company

The Creative Company's own KT Arnesen shares the best of what she heard from the HOW conference this year, such as:

Selling Creativity - Mary Zalla. How to get clients on board with your designs.  

Advanced Proposal and Pricing Strategies from Emily Cohen.  Some of her best business practices for getting paid and getting approvals.

Design Currency - Promoting the value of design.  The world needs beautiful design, but aesthetics are inherently subjective.  Visocky O’Grady spoke about some specific research that has been done regarding the effect of design on buying decisions.

Storytelling in the age of the tablet: lessons and tips from Dr. Mario R. Garcia.

This will be a non-technical presentation suitable for all design-engaged meetup members.

Doors open at 6pm, presentation at 6:30.

    I am so sorry everyone. I forgot about this event. I get involved with my school work, and then forget about an event. Look forward to the next meetup! Best regards, Susan

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
