‘Brand Perfect Tour’ & ‘Voices That Matter’ Design Conferences

Posted on

Design conferences are a great way to get motivated & stay ahead in this extremely fast moving industry. Today I wanted to share with you two great conferences and some exclusive discounts to them, as well as an opportunity to win some free tickets to each.

1. ‘Brand Perfect Tour’ Branding Conference


The Brand Perfect Tour brings together brands, brand managers, directors, designers and developers in a unique forum of communication and discovery – An open exchange of strategies and technologies designed to improve brand consistency and the user experience in the digital landscape.

The Brand Perfect Tour is being held in London, Hamburg & NYC on various dates. There is a great line up of speakers and some awesome ‘master classes’ to attend too.

20% Discount & 6 Free VIP tickets (worth $395 each)

I have 6 free VIP tickets to give away to the NYC conference being held on June 22nd. To qualify for the free ticket,  you must be a brand director/manager from an established company or a Creative Director. If you do not qualify for the free ticket, you can still get a 20% discount by using the code ‘JC’ at checkout, valid to June 1st. Reserve your place here.

For info on how to win a free VIP ticket, see the bottom of this post. Entries now closed.

2. ‘Voices That Matter’ Web Design Conference


Update: This year’s conference has been cancelled due to low attendance.

Last year I went to the Voices That Matter Conference in San Francisco and it was a great experience. It was a very ‘hands on’ detailed look at specific aspects of the web design industry which was spoken by people very well versed in the industry – all published authors.

Anyway, the good news is that the Voices That Matter Web Design Conference conference is being held again this year on June 27-28th in San Francisco. Participants can expect to gain insights on the best approaches on designing for mobile, social media, HTML5 and CSS3, content strategy, grids, typography, fonts, workflow, user experience, and more.

Over the two day program you will hear from Bruce Lawson, Kelly Goto, Shawn Welch, and many more.

$200 Special Discount & Free Ticket!

As someone that reads Just Creative Design, you can save $100 (new registrations only) off the conference fee by using the discount code ‘WSBLOGS’. If you register by May 27th you can save another $100 off too!

Check out the conference web site or contact Barbara Gavin, 617.848.7026 to register / request more information.

For those looking to win the one free ticket, see the bottom of this post.

Other Recommended Conferences

I’ve made an effort to attend (and speak at) a number of conferences over the past few years and I wanted to share my favourite ones with you, so you can put them on your radar for now and in the future.

    Hi Jacob,
    First of all, you really “got it going on” with your blog posts…I’ve heard Milton Glaser say that the best thing that a graphic designer can do is to develop writing skills. Also, you’ve got some great marketing smarts with this win-win promotion. I am a freelance graphic designer, ankle-deep in web development, yearning to learn more about the current trends, best practices and technologies for new media. The “Voices That Matter Conference” sounds like a significant conference to fulfill that purpose, and right in my area…thanks for making me aware of it, and for the possibility of winning a free ticket. I would assure you that I would make good use of it. Keep on keeping on! Best, Clarice

  • Julie Dahl

    I just found your blog, and very happy I did. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to go to the Voices That Matter Conference in SF. Thanks!
