The Future of Web Design NYC + Ticket Giveaway

Posted on

Conferences are a great way to stay ahead of the curve and The Future of Web Design (FOWD) by Future Insights is a conference that I highly recommend. I’ve personally been to 4 of their conferences since 2009 and they have consistently got better each year which is why I still volunteer to be one of their media partners.

Their conferences are energy-filled (see photos) and extremely inspiring, and are targeted towards web designers, front-end developers, and anyone working to make the web incredible. FOWD starts with a full day of workshops, followed by two days of sessions, networking activities, and creative challenges to nourish your brain.

    I’d like to be there to update my self about web design as well as find some people to team up with me about my project.

  • Rin

    I want to go so that I can get more knowledge/materials to inspire my son.

  • Kent

    I’d be stoked for the opportunity to attend this conference! As a freelancer trying to build my skill set, I could benefit immensely from the experts at FOWD. I have experience in graphic design and illustration, but am eager to progress in the field of web design. Thanks for the opportunity to enter Justin!

  • Lora Byrnside

    I am a contractor and therefore never get to go to conferences.

  • Cody Moiseve

    Good Morning,

    I would love to have an opportunity to go to The Future of Web Design Conference! I have not yet had an opportunity to go to such an aspiring and amazing conference! This would be a great venue to meet and collaborate with new people and expand my growing skills as a web and mobile designer. Of all the conferences I have looked at, this one has always been top of mind as one I would love to check out and learn from. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Chad

    I’d love to go, my favorite part is learning what everyone else is up to in the industry and just taking bits and pieces back with me and incorporating that within my own process. I try to get to one conference per every other/year but the conference usually done in my city (Pittsburgh) has been postponed until next year so this may be my only opportunity to get to one this year.

  • jason Cooksey

    I will already be in NYC! Nothing can increase your skillset like attending one of these conferences. Most of us, at best, get a few hours sporadically every once in a while to learn new trends and technologies. Events like this force you to sit in one place and focus on your future. What an opportunity! I wanna wiiin!!

  • Vincent Burkhead

    It’s simple, really. I want to share what I learn at FOWD to propel the industry forward, inspire my followers, and teach clients how to best work with Web Designers & Developers. Having built my first website in 1994, I am constantly learning & growing.
    This conference will help me help the universe evolve. I just want to change the world for the better, that’s all. :))
    Thank you Jacob for this opportunity!

  • mr. Geengles

    It’d be nice to get the ticket to FOWD and learn from real professionals , so some good guidance in web design will really help.

  • Patrick Fisher

    I don’t ever get to go to any cool conferences. Also, we desperately need a new website, it’s super outdated and hard to use. Please oh please, pick me!

  • Sasha-Shae

    Wowsers! Thanks for even offering this opportunity. I’d love to go because I am aspiring to become a web designer/developer and learning from people I look up to in the field first hand would just be amazing! I also think it would be very inspiring and fun because not only would I get to connect with new people. I’d take away a lot of great skills and tips which I could in turn share with others who are also looking to learn web design and development, and nothing beats that! We all need to grow, and I think this conference would be the stepping point for me.

  • Yeshiva

    I would like to attend in order to get up to date on important topics on design that are clearly important for my career and business. I am very much interested in the cutting edge topics you will be discussing and the panelists that will be presenting. I see life through my designer lense and to me it’s indispensable to grow, learn, and keep up with the trends and improvements our field continuously develops.

    Thanks!

    Yeshiva.

  • Will

    I am a fellow Aussie living in the states, waiting on my work permit which will come late November so this will be perfect timing to start new projects full of new ideas.

  • Ken

    Heard of it all time, but never have a chance to go. Praying…

  • Edward Matovu

    I want to learn so I can teach others. Looking forward to it.

  • Gabriel Velez

    I would like to go to FOWD so that I can learn new things as well as network with likeminded designers like myself looking to give a better web experience to our clients and the world!

  • Bobby Adamson

    I would love to go to FOWD because I have been dying to go to a conference like this since my high school years. I was from the midwest and I’ve been reading your blog when you still had the pencil design in the header. I thought that was the coolest thing when I was just a budding web designer and a lot of your posts inspired me to continue. Six years later, I have just moved to New York City and this would be a great opportunity for me to finally go to one of the conferences I’ve so long watched streams for and read decks on. Thanks for your consideration and thanks for all your rad content over the years.

  • Makayla Vikander

    I think the FOWD conference would be a wonderful opportunity for myself as a student. I am currently attending Full Sail University and I am eager to get out there and learn. My job stops me from going to school on campus because it takes up so much of my time, so for now I have to take online classes. Going to New York and attending the FOWD conference will help me become more involved and up to date with my industry. Thank you for the amazing learning opportunity!

    -Makayla

  • Brandon Barringer

    What a dream it would be to go to this conference. During conference season all I see is tweets from this conference or that conference. How this workshop “Changed how I do design forever”, or “This talk on — Gave me a new outlook on –”. Basically I want to be the guy tweeting my experience at FOWD, instead of the guy staring bitterly at my screen trying to blowup twitter with my mind. (pick me)

  • Therron Jones

    Hi Jacob! I’m a web developer, but over the past few years I’ve become a fan of all things web design. I’ve been studying independently to broaden my web design skill-set. I’ve recently (as in the past month or so) been given the opportunity to focus solely on web design at my job and it has been a challenging yet exciting and rewarding experience. I would like to attend this conference because I’ve never had the opportunity to participate in a conference of this magnitude and I feel like attending this conference can only help me to achieve my goals both personally and professionally. Thanks!

    –TJ

    Jacob, how are you! nice opportunity to be ahead with web design tech

  • Lonnie McRavin

    In one word…VISION. Understanding the outlet media if website design and how to articulate the appropriate vision in line with the mission would be an extreme opportunity.

  • tony

    Start spreading the news, I am leaving today.
    I want to be a part of it, FOWD, FOWD.
    These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
    Right through the very heart of it, FOWD, FOWD.

    I wanna wake up, In that city that doesn’t sleep.
    And find I’m king of the hill, top of the heap.

    These little town blues, are melting away.
    I’ll make a brand new start of it, in old New York.

    If I can make it there,
    I’ll make it anywhere.
    It’s up to you, FOWD, FOWD.

  • Steven

    I want to have this opportunity, I have never had the chance to be part of a conference like this before. I am a graphic designer keen to expand, and improve my web design and web development skills. I am passionate for the things I do and I want to meet passionate people that love what they do. As a freelance I work from home with clients around the globe, so I do not get the opportunity to have face to face interactions. This conference would bring that opportunity to me and would bring me the opportunity to learn from professionals to expand and improve my career, knowledge, and ideas. I would be grateful and excited to attend! :)

  • morgan reid

    While my 9-5 job is digital marketing, in order to pursue my real passion, I’m currently attending front end web development classes in the evening. Attending this conference would give me the opportunity to legitimize my web design experience and hopefully move my career in this direction. My dream is to eventually freelance or have some sort of consulting business, so this conference would be extremely valuable, especially as someone who has only been mostly self taught so far. I would die of excitement!

  • James Hall

    Hello! I’d really like to be given the opportunity to attend The Future of Web Design because I’ve attended numerous conferences this year and every time I’ve left with tons of motivation and knowledge that I could apply to my art and business. My business is currently climbing in my area and I take every opportunity improve and stay up to date with the industry… Either way, I appreciate the opportunity. I’ll be there regardless… Thanx!

  • Kristina

    Hi Jacob! I’ve never had the chance to attend such a high quality Conference and I would love it to improve my Skills trough such an inspiring chance. Thank you for the opportunity and your great work!

  • Jeremy Josey

    Hey Jacob

    I’ve been to future insights in vegas and loved the quality of the conference, i’ve never been to New York ( don’t worry getting there won’t be an issue) and have had my eye on this conference for the last few months since attending converge. I feel these conferences are great motivators and find they re-energize / inspire the people that attendees. Inspire me Jacob….lol thanks @jeremyjosey

  • Casey Kaplan

    An opportunity to attend this conference would allow me to capture and bring back knowledge and insights, in order to help grow our whole team and many other aspiring designers. Thanks!

  • R?za Selçuk Saydam

    I will graduate by July 2015 and it is great opportunity for me to attend FOWD New York because I will learn what is important for future and also will meet people that will bring future faster.

  • James Hall

    Vincent Burkhead has a terrific website!!! I want to go so that I can learn to be that good! LOL!

    • Vincent Burkhead

      • James Hall

        WoW! Thanks a lot… Means a lot coming from you… I didn’t really agree with the client’s concept or layout but I tried my best to make it memorable and mean something in my community… It worked! Thanx again!

  • Ryan

    To become better.

  • Aloke Pillai

    I jumped on a plane with one duffel bag and a suitcase to NY nearly three months ago. People told me if I wanted to be the best, I had to come to this city. From a picture on my wall to seeing the real thing, the feeling is unexplainable. I would love to listen to the talks and meet the people that love doing the same thing as me.

  • Miguel

    I would like to attend because I heard NYC is a great city and I have never been there. I live in California. I would also like to attend to take my web design skills to the next level and share and learn about the future of the web. I’m a .net developer and enjoy anything related to the web.

  • Andy Brazil

    I’m always trying to get more inspired and be progressive in my web design. I’m 26 and am trying to take my career to new levels. Attending this conference would help give me a big boost of motivation and inspiration. I want to be able to meet new connections in the industry and learn new things from great designers/developers. I’ve never been to New York and I have always wanted to attend a major conference there, especially if it has to do with web design. Lastly…JC, you have been a huge inspiration to me for the past 6+ years now and I think it would be very cool to meet you in person!

  • Paola Serrano

    I would like to attend because I believe on the outstanding work, the ideas beyond clients expectations, and because I want my work can inspire others.

  • Jeremy Josey

    What! i’m competing with a spam bot!!!! Come on!!!! lol fine i also train mma i will teach you how to give your next nightmare client a rear naked choke or arm bar (your choice) if i’m chosen.

  • tashmarie

    I would enjoy being able to give the ticket to one of my best friend for over 7 years. He is talented when it comes to graphic art. I know he will probably cry for joy to receive something this spectacular. It is a great opportunity for him.

  • Evan

    I’m striving to become a trailblazer for web ux in both my personal and professional life. This would be the perfect opportunity to provide fuel for my passions and allow me to teach my peers with the knowledge I acquire.

  • Luke S

    Thanks for running the givaway, Jacob! I want to bring some fresh design ideas to my company and FOWD would be an amazing opportunity to explore some new techniques. If I attend I’m sure I could convince my boss to invest in more conferences in the future.

  • Steven

    Is there any chance of knowing who was the the fortunate person?:)

    • Jacob Cass

      Hi Steven,

      I have contacted the winner already but they are confirming if they can 100% make it. If they can not make it, there will be a new winner. Stay tuned!

  • tony

    Thanks a lot Jacob for this opportunity.
