Can you believe it? Big Design Conference 2010 will be here next month! In order to help promote the event, they’ve decided to give away Apple iPads to 4 lucky people. The catch is that you need to be within the first 200 to register for the Big Design event. Of course, this is for your own benefit since the ticket prices will increase as the date approaches. Not only is Big Design Conference giving away free stuff, but you can expect Aquent, Mad*Pow, Microsoft, Adobe, and others to have free swag at the conference as well!
Since the Big Design Conference is right around the corner, DFW UPA decided that it would be a good time to incorporate design thinking into usability. Brian Sullivan will be presenting a Design Like da Vinci interactive workshop for the April meeting. The workshop will feature 10 exercises that Leonardo da Vinci used when designing the The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. Plan your schedules accordingly, because you won’t want to miss this one!
