Designish: Behind, beneath, and between the comps.
Quality "pixelcraft" is the hallmark of a skilled web designer: engineering complex, stunning code that dances between today's zoo of digital devices with ease; artfully drawing up wireframes with both industrial utility and user experience in mind; understanding the importance of sturdy, responsive websites that shine. Luckily for the rest of us artisans in training, becoming the Machiavelli of the Mac is not - in fact - mission impossible. Let’s unearth what the modern-day designer’s job really looks like, and explore some treasures more important than our Photoshop canvases.
Come one, come all to Dan Mall's talk on July 26th, where he'll touch on the aforementioned topics. A native son of Philadelphia, Dan works as the Founder and Design Director at SuperFriendly
, where he defeats apathy and the forces of evil daily, with heroic creative direction, design, and strategy. He also co-founded Typedia
and swfIR, while also devoting his time and musical talents to contemporary Christian band Four24
Formerly, Dan took up residence as Design Director at Big Spaceship
(where he helped build this insanely Star Wars encyclopedia), Interactive Director at Happy Cog
, and technical editor for the ever popular techie haven, A List Apart
. Today, he writes about smart design and other issues on Twitter
, and his insanely beautiful website, danielmall.com
We can't wait to welcome Dan to the stage, and hear from one of web design's most buzzed about young guns.
Bonus: We'll have food at the event courtesy of PMG
, then there's a post-event mixer at RiRa Irish Pub
in Midtown, and Nine Labs
is buying the first round!
See you there!
