Desktop web design is the earliest and the most profound, landmark of
user interface design, but now with the proliferation of mobile devices and
tablets – how do we adapt design? Join Kellis Landrum (Meat & Potatoes), Chevon
Hicks (Heavenspot), and Brian Wood (Adobe) as we discuss moving beyond the desktop
experience and designing for integrated digital platforms. How do we articulate the web-design needs and evaluate
and integrate these needs with new technologies? Join
us and mingle with the LA design community beforehand while enjoying food and
drinks with us at the Downtown Independent Theater prior to the seminar and
sign up to win a free copy of Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Design Premium.
