2015 West Conference

Welcome to TRIBE:CRAFT, where you will learn how to build a tribe + sharpen your craft!

Through exploration of design swarms, tribal brand-leading keynotes, panel discussions and maker-style workshops, consultants and corporate designers will walk away with tangible skills that will sharpen their craft.

During the 1.5 days at TRIBE:CRAFT, we will start and finish exercises that are new and relevant to our culture. You’ll learn about research techniques for global and local design trends. We will study best practices for tapping into the maker movement while understanding and connecting to the "start-up” culture. We will hear from leaders on innovative ways to create balanced and sustainable skills that are required for a long-lasting career, while ensuring your worth by understanding the ROI of good design.

Please join us as we connect with old friends, make new ones and survey the brightest talent our district schools have to offer during the portfolio review and the Student Merit Awards.

I look forward to sharing this experience with you on April 10 – 11, 2015 in San Jose.
