What's in it for me?
The Columbus Creative Design Conference will bring creative professionals together and with the guidance of key speakers and networking, each attendee will leave a better designer. With industry leaders speaking, each attendee will have the opportunity to learn tips and tricks from the pros, stay current on new trends, and network with people that have reach in this industry around the globe. In addition to learning how to become a better designer through detailed instruction, each guest will have the chance to talk with each speaker one-on-one. These relationships with other creative professionals will help foster growth through constructive critiquing and exposure to a larger audience by means of online resources such as twitter and dribble.
Columbus is beautiful and has potential to be better through the the collective creative abilities of our citizens. Together we will beautify the world in which we live.
