Pursue Your Passion — Leave the Infrastructure to Someone Else
The internet has opened up creative new ways for entrepreneurial individuals to make a living creating and selling their own products, on their own terms. This panel is for people who are interested in the creative side of freelance design, but who would rather leave things like marketing and distribution up to someone else.
Design and the DIY Industrial Revolution
People Powered Products are fueling massive changes to the way everything – from clothing to books to furniture – is designed. DIY design revolutionizes the way that products are made and sold, so understanding its key features and attributes is vital to designers, product managers, and start-ups of every type.
See you in Austin next March – if you’ve never been, it’s well worth the time and money to attend the Interactive, Film and Music festivals. See cool technologies, watch more films than you can handle, meet the people behind it all, hear great music in better bars, and learn first-hand why the town slogan is Keep Austin Weird. (We learned this the hard way…which is also the fun way.)
Here’s a few of our shots from last year to whet your appetites.
