“Information Design: An Evolving Story”
Despite the present-day popularity of information design, no one really knows its history. In focusing on 18th and 19th century works, new contributors have been uncovered. By reviewing the history of this field, we learn it is much larger than we previously knew, and its story continues to evolve.

Room 132B
Aaron Pierson
“Selling Your First Six-Figure Engagement”
In this session, I’ll break down exactly how to convert your current and potential clients into consistent business for your agency or freelance business, dissecting my entire process from the initial discovery call all the way down to submitting the proposal. The goal is to give creatives the confidence to position themselves as problem solvers, not order takers.

Room 132A
Banna Tesfay & Shelby Rinke with panelists Miles McDermott, Sydney Crabtree & Scott Biersack
“(Not So) Starving Artist”
Young Designers Panel Discussion
Let’s be honest—there’s a lot they don’t teach you in design school. As the industry evolves and the status quo shifts, it’s overwhelming as a creative to prepare yourself for finding a career path. In this panel, we’ll chat with some innovative young designers about the secrets to success and how to not only find your seat at the table, but eat your dinner too.

Room 131C
Amy Robinson
“That’s My Story + I’m Sticking To It”
We all know the power of a good story—one that is impactful and leaves an imprint on us long after we’ve read it. As designers and brand advocates, we harness the same power to help bring visual stories to life. But what about our OWN story and how it affects what we do in our day-to-day life? This talk explores how our own story shapes our choices in life, love, and our pursuit of no bull$#!*. It’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
