HOW Design Live Online

Did you miss HOW Design Live in Boston? Or are you simply looking to attend sessions you missed? This is your chance: We’re excited to announce that the best of HOW Design Live will be available online!

HOW Design Live is the event for designers, freelancers, in-house managers and other industry professionals. It’s where creative people come to find inspiration, learn new skills, advance their careers and develop their own businesses—opportunities you can’t find in one place anywhere else.

At this three-week online event, you’ll get to experience what makes HOW Design Live such an amazing event. And because it’s web-based, you can participate from anywhere!

  • You get an all-access pass to watch 23 videos recorded at the conference and participate in live chats. Unlike the set schedule at the event, you’re able to join in whenever your schedule allows. You won’t have to worry about running from one room to the next, and you’ll never have to make tough decisions like choosing between two great speakers with simultaneous sessions.

Features & Benefits:

  • Convenience: You can take experience HOW Design Live Online anywhere you can connect to the internet: at home, at the library, at the coffee shop with your laptop. Simply choose the spot that works for you. Best of all: You eliminate travel costs and parking hassles!
  • Flexibility: Because the videos are prerecorded, you don’t have to show up at a specific time to catch the ones you want or choose between sessions you’re interested in. You can watch what you want, when you want.
  • Unlimited viewing: Your all-access pass enables you to view all 23 sessions during the online event. PLUS, since you have access to the videos for three weeks, you can watch and re-watch the ones that inspire you the most.
  • Curated Content: We have curated the sessions from the HOW Design Live events that we think represent the overall conference experience. This means you get the same inspirational and practical advice that you’d receive at the event at a fraction of the cost.
  • Live chats and message board discussions: Enhance your conference experience by participating in conversations with HOW Design Live staff and presenters.
  • Value: Online registration saves you 64% off the price of purchasing each video separately ($1,100). It’s like getting 13 sessions for free!
