An impressive line-up of coders, designers, typographers and illustrators are heading to Brighton next weekend for annual web design conference Reasons to be Creative.
The three-day event, which kicks off on September 2, is aimed at designers, coders “and anyone with a creative mind”. Speakers include Stefan Sagmeister, Google designer Fabio Sassion, Microsoft creative technologist Andrew Spooner, Shopify designer Keir Whitaker, illustrator Mr Bingo and typographer Erik Speakerman.
Each day will begin with 20 three-minute ‘elevator pitches’ from up-and-coming creatives, followed by longer presentations and an interactive workshop. Topics for discussion include using audio to connect with web users, building successful e-commerce sites and staying motivated under pressure.
Reasons to be Creative has been running since 2006 and used to be known as Flash on the Beach. It was named Event of the Year at last year’s Critters design and development awards, and founder Jon Davey says he hopes it will leave people “pumped full of motivation and inspiration, and with useful tips and contacts.”
Tickets are on sale until Friday, August 23 and discounts are available for students.
Reasons to be Creative takes place at Brighton Dome from September 2-4. For more information or to buy tickets visit reasons.to
