Secret Handshake #33 - Designer Appreciation Night

**UPDATE** One free domestic beer, standard spirit or non-alcoholic beverage for all graphic/web/interactive designers. Simply drop your business card at the bar and enjoy a cold one on Leanne!!"

If you're a designer, we want to see you out next Thursday! And if you're looking for a designer, well, hopefully Leanne's bribery works, and you'll meet some inspiring and awesome peeps on Thursday Jan. 24.

****

Come on down to the January, 2013 edition of Secret Handshake. Meet some cool new creative types from Winnipeg and beyond. (Maybe those lovely Brandon peeps will make an appearance too?)

We had such a great time in November at Arkadash, we figure we'd give it another whirl. And as per usual, it'll be a come-and-go style event with the most super-casual atmosphere.

And if you've never been--never fear! Just pop in any time during the evening for a chat and a bevvy with a group of friendly, open, and interesting creative professionals.

Can't wait =)

<3 Chris & Leanne

    Last night's Secret Handshake was a blast. Extrovert-Kyle feels socially recharged. Introvert-Kyle isn't speaking with me.

    I'm stuck out in the snow. I won't make it tonight and I was so very much looking forward to it :(

    I'm loving the pre-meetup connections being made here!! We should set up a "connections" area so people can find each other better. Say the first 3 booths beside the lounge? Then the self publishers, the Dimitri crew, the Tactica folks, etc won't have to scramble to find each other.

    Looking forward to meeting some people who develop and design for mobile. My company is looking for some developers to join our mobile team so it's great to see what else is going on Winnipeg -- http://tippingcanoe.com/careers

    Game design consultant here. Hit me up if you wanna talk game development. This meetup marks two years of me going to Secret Handshake. No longer the new guy! :-o

    Nice to see so many familiar faces attending.

    Are any self-publishers attending? Need some advise on that.

    January 22, 2013

    • Steven D.

      I've helped out someone who self-published. If that helps.

      January 22, 2013

    • Kingsley A.

      That'll help, I believe the rules are the same for video distribution & publishing?

    Had no idea this existed until the Free Press article. Been working from home for too long! Should be fun.

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.
