No, I will (Probably) Not Redesign Your Website

Friday, March 13
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon D
110 E 2nd St


Designers are always hungry for more creative challenges, always on the lookout for the next cool project to add to their portfolio. Although "everyone needs a website", it doesn’t mean designers need to work on every project dropped in their lap. In this presentation, Jon Setzen will explain why being selective matters and why web designers should strive to choose good people over what seems like a good project. He will also touch on how web designers can benefit from stepping outside of their online comfort zone, and turn that "can you redesign my website?" project into something more. Setzen will let the audience in on his personal journey as a designer constantly working on multiple projects in multiple disciplines, on and off screen, and will address why the work designers choose today will define what they’ll be working on tomorrow.
