Boston was great. I even spent a bit of time blogging for Neenah Paper while there:
- HOW Design Live 2018 is Magic
- Time May Change HOW
- Lobster Rolls, HOWie, and Johnny Cupcakes Spinning Vinyl at HOW Design Live
In addition to the 3 recaps, over the next few months I’ll also be releasing six podcasts recorded while at HOW.
And the coloring book I discuss briefly with Karen? A page illustrated by Darcy Hinrichs (shown above), includes me as a spaceman! I didn’t realize being in a conference bag coloring book was on my bucket list until I saw it. So cool.
HOW Design Live in Atlanta may have been a week ago, but it’s finally starting to settle in how much actually happened. It always amazes me that it really takes a few days after getting back from an event like this to process and realize what all happened. It probably helps that I record a decent amount while at the event, as it also gives me another chance to re-listen to what all was going on.
The night before the event started, I got together with a small group for barbecue, and did a pre-conference recording. Thanks to Justin Ahrens, Blair Brady, Von Glitschka, Stefan Mumaw, Matt Porter, Jamie Saunders, and Jamie Sims for chatting on this episode.
The exhibit hall at HOW Design Live in Chicago is the biggest single area of design vendors you will find all year. On my second day, I actually went around and recorded from a few booths to get a feel for what the feeling of HOW was from around the midway point.
