Exposed: Designers in the Startup World

Tuesday, April 8

This is the first of a 2-part Venturef0rth event duathalon all about design and startups. The first: a panel that will blow off your paneling. The second: the return of our infamous Speed Dating for Designers event (4/30).

We’ve compiled an all-star panel to tell you the real deal – what it’s really like to work as a designer in a startup. You’ll hear horror stories, you’ll hear how it was the best choice ever made, and you’ll learn the best practices for designer interaction both from a designer and CEO perspective.

Whether you’re a designer, or you might EVER start a company, come to this. This is good, solid advice, people. Like, for instance, did you know that designers can do more than just make your website look pretty? I know, gasp.

Basically, you’ll get schooled at this event in the best way possible.

The panel includes awesome local startup celebrities including:

  • Robert Moore, CEO at RJMetrics

  • Kevin Jackson, design director at Artisan Mobile and formerly of Boomi

  • Melissa Morris Ivone, designer at Curalate

5:45 pm for craft brews, 6:15 pm for the panel of your dreams
