* open networking and socializing
Presentation: Khoi Vinh will speak about the online news industry, sharing his experience as the design director at NYTimes.com and his insight into web and mobile design.
Khoi Vinh is a user experience designer, writer and speaker. For five years, he was the design director at NYTimes.com, where he led the in-house design team in user experience innovation for digital products of all kinds. For over a decade, he has published his thoughts on design, technology and culture at the widely-read blog Subtraction.com. He is the author of "Ordering Disorder: Grid Principles for Web Design" (New Riders), and he has lectured all over the world on design matters. Previously, Khoi was a co-founder of the award-winning New York design studio Behavior, LLC. He studied communication design at Otis School of Art and Design in Los Angeles, and practiced branding and graphic design in print for several years in Washington, D.C., before moving to New York City.
Design Review: A panel of 3 local web designers will review a recently redesigned website and provide web design critique. Afterward, the site and panel will be opened up to the group for feedback.
This month, the panel will be moderated by Rich Franconeri of Rubenstein Technology Group, and will include:
- Paul Pierson, Partner, Carbone Smolan Agency-
- Mike Kelly, Creative Director, Hudson Union

Networking: As with past meetings, we'll split our time into about 90 minutes of presentations and discussion, and 30 minutes of open networking. Refreshments will be served, so please join us (and bring a friend to help our group grow!).
We're always looking for presenters for future Meetups -- if you have a topic you'd like to present, a website you'd like to have critiqued, or design expertise you'd like to provide by being our panel, please get in touch.
