Organizer

Saforian

Saforian is doing a series of events on all things digital. Please keep an eye out for each event.  We are keeping these workshops small, in order to have a more intimate and educational experience. 

We believe in the power of design, the strength of strategy, and the ability of technology to transform businesses and lives.

Founded on the belief of creating incredible end-user experiences — stylish and strategic, innovative yet easy to use — we design content that consumers connect to, engage with and believe in. We are passionate about what we do, the organizations we work with and the consumers and causes we design for. It's our difference, and we dig it.
