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