Against the grain
Much like music festivals, design and development conferences tend to occur in the warmth of Summer. They're also more likely to take place in the major cities of the world: your Londons, New Yorks, Sydneys, and so on. Well, New Adventures in Web Design goes against the grain. This is a unique web design event taking place in Nottingham. In the middle of England. In bleak midwinter.
Who's it aimed at?
This event will be sympathetic to existing and new challenges and opportunities faced by front-end design folks in their day-to-day work and beyond. That said, the content will be beneficial to a broad audience, and a number of attendees and guests represent agencies, organisations, and businesses across varied roles. Ultimately, this event is organised by designers, for designers.
New Adventures... will be carefully curated; chock-full of integrity, opinion, and fresh content, with an emphasis on shaking things up and challenging convention. This event has inspiration, thinking, and intelligence at its core. It will encourage debate, enthuse, excite, ask questions, and look for real outcomes.
You can expect highly relevant themes such as designing for delight, responsive design, devices, typography, creativity and play. Presentations will draw broadly from not just web design, but the wider world, and the lessons learned in other industries.
You'll also find that the speakers are all very friendly and approachable. Everyone will be eager to listen and discuss the topics away from the stage.
