Design Share 3 Recap

With another Design Share event in the can we thought we'd share a taste of the evening's amazing talks for those who couldn't make it. Our format mostly stayed the same featuring 4 short-format talks (roughly 10 minutes each) ending in a panel-style round-up with all the speakers at the end. This time around we saw and heard about how design can lead the charge for grassroots campaigns, how design wishes can become scary (but awesome) realities, what it's like to start designing for the iPad and similar devices, and how to rise above negative feedback to extend a rebranding effort.
