More Posters, DDC, and Biking for Water at HOW

You can definitely feel the energy at this year’s HOW Design Live in Chicago. I didn’t need to know that over 4,000 creatives are here to tell that it was packed – the fact that I’m writing this in a large room just outside of the speaker set up with video feed for overflow should […]
