Two years ago, I was fortunate enough to have attended my first work-related conference, HOW Live in Denver. It remains, to this day, one of the few good things that came out of working for my previous employer because it was one of the most amazing experiences in my professional and personal life.
I met people and learned things that changed the way I look at design. I remember a fellow coworker (and fellow attendee) and I saying at the end “We just want to stay here and learn more things FOREVER!”.
Wednesday night I leave for Boston, to head out to my second HOW experience—with the added bonus of attending the InHOWse Managers part of the conference as well.
I’m so excited. I need this. I’m hitting this point of feeling both overloaded with work (workload wise) and creatively drained. I just need some inspiration, direction, a creative kick in the butt.
Plus, I’m ridiculously excited to meet other in-house designers and find out how their departments work.
