This might shock you, but web design isn’t all html, AJAX and meta-data.  In fact, sometimes it’s about collaboration, innovation and camaraderie.

Tomorrow, Interactive Team Lead Scott, and Lead Developer Isaac leave on a journey to the Big Apple in search of these lesser known, but equally important elements of design. 

They’ll be attending the Smashing Conference.  Created by Smashing Magazine; a source for designers and developers, the conference is a tangible realization of their publication.

Scott and Isaac will hear from user experience designers, developers, user interface designers—leaders in the industry from companies like Google, Mail Chimp, Adobe, and Mozilla.

The web lets you connect with people all over the world but there’s still something to be said for getting together IRL (that’s how the internet says “in real life”) to share ideas and solve challenges in today’s very fast paced world of design.
