Keeping abreast of emerging trends is one of the most challenging aspects of any designer's job. If you're looking for a truly accurate picture of the web design world we'll inhabit over the next few years, as well as the technologies, techniques and ideas that will be guiding our careers then you need to attend the Future of Web Design conference.
Returning for its 8th year, FOWD will be held 7th–9th April at the Brewery in London, UK.
There are practical hands-on workshops that allow you to experience a range of vital technologies including CSS architecture and responsive design. Workshops are taught by respected industry leaders including Rachel Nabors, Harry Roberts, Jason Pamental and Paul Addams; giving you the chance to immerse yourself in some genuinely innovative techniques.
The central focus of the conference is the future of the web design sector and all the sessions focus on key emerging practices and technologies that could be the next big thing.
It's the perfect opportunity to develop your agency's staff into a cutting-edge team that are both prepared for, and excited about the next few years.
Key sessions this year include Stephanie Rieger (Yiibu), Razvan Caliman (Adobe), Jason Pamental (H+W Design) and Gunnar Vilhjálmsson (Monotype); as well as many more with 30 sessions scheduled for the 2 conference days.
On top of that, the buzz that surrounds the conference is a great place to network, hang out, and otherwise make those connections that ensure we stay a community rather than a professional field.
Attending the FOWD conference is a sure-fire way to develop a vision for where the Web is going, how we're going to get there, and what we'll see along the way. With an impressive list of speakers and a great balance of design, technical and inspirational sessions, FOWD is one of the premier events on the conference calendar and not to be missed.
