Behind the Scenes of HOW Design Live

Written by in Events

Come and Get It! (Tonight!)

(Reported by Bennett Holzworth) I came up a couple days early for HOW Design Live to volunteer (i.e. get the goody bags ready for mass consumption). So if you are at the conference, just think of the little people packing paper samples and sell sheets into your cool new bag (hint: the bags are a pretty cool change this year). It was rather fun to take a peek behind the mutli-colored curtain. It would also be fun to see rehearsals and speaker arrivals, but alas, I was pretty much just there stuffing goody bags.

On a side note, if you need some travel tips for the next time you are in Boston just look me up. Since I am here for a full seven days, I decided to stay at a hostel for the first few days to save a few bucks. It has been a pretty great experience. I have gone out on group activites with random foreigners and just wandered the historic streets of Boston. Since I am staying in Chinatown I took the recommendation of the front desk girl here at the hostel for a dim sum place. The food was great and I got to share a table with a family from Vermont. However, the healthy rat that ran past my table wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. The more surprising thing to me was that no one seemed to care that much. Even more surprising . . . I finished my rice plate!

I am excited for all that is yet to come. Gladwell, Millman, Godin, Sagmeister . . . and hanging out with 2,500+ fellow designers. Should be an amazing time. Stay tuned.
