If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: the lines which once divided the worlds of design and technology are at best gray. In reality, they’re nonexistent. Which is why Design Week Portland—the amazing week long series of design events that graces the city every year—is as important an event for tech folks as it is designers.
Maybe even more so.
Especially for events that are being hosted by tech folks. Like eROI’s Mortality of Design, which is a meta series of events occurring under the umbrella of the Design Week PDX.
And there are still a couple of events available to attend.
Selling Ice Cubes to Eskimos: How Design Motivates Reluctant Buyers Online
As retail models change, so does the purchasing experience for consumers. This is most pronounced in eCommerce, which retailers are using in new and innovative ways to capture sales. This interactive event will examine this shift and what it means for content creators. It will be hosted at the newly renovated eROI headquarters, along with snacks and a hosted bar.
Death of the Design Comp
The design comp has had a long reign as the singular means by which a designer communicates design intention. Its power is garnered from a single screen landscape, but its prominence is rapidly coming to end as we move into an era of modular design in the Fluid Web.
Sound interesting? There’s still room to get in on the life, death, and rebirth of design in the digital age.
