This was the second year for Big Design, and like most second times around, it was bigger, better, and still the best Design conference in the DFW area – one that also ties in social media and development. This year, not only did I get to help out, but I gave my IA Summit presentation on Mobile Strategy (updated for the months passed) to a great crowd who indulged my fast talking, information packed presentation style.
What goes into making a successful conference? Lots of great people with a great community of support. This year I mainly helped with swag and signage. @logo2u helped get us some great stuff: a moleskine “like” notebook, sharpie pen, sticker, badge, and lots of tshirts.
The signage was bigger and better thanks to fastsigns being a sponsor this year.
Stephen Anderson had us supplied with a mini-set of Mental Notes cards.
But what about the parties you ask? Yes we have those as well.
What does success look like for Big Design? A great group of people – wanting to connect, share and explore new topics.
