First Round 2018: Tickets Available

Announced Feb. 26, 2018 by Armin

Tags /

We are excited to announce a new live event taking place on May 11, 2018 in New York: First Round, a one-day showcase of original presentations made to clients showing initial design explorations for logo, identity, and branding projects. This will be a rare opportunity to see how other designers present their work. There will be 12 sessions, each with a designer (or duo of designers) presenting their original PDF/Keynote/PowerPoint shown to one of their clients.

There are only 2 months to buy tickets — early-bird prices end April 6 — and there wasn’t much build-up to the introduction of this event because we were trying to organize a different kind of event that didn’t proceed as expected so we did a quick pivot into this. We are delighted that we were able to get speakers willing to share their presentations and this will be a rare treat.

Unlike the Brand New Conference, First Round will be more low-key, all the speakers will be local New Yorkers, all the presentations are about a single file for a single client (vs. BNConf where it’s more about a designer’s œuvre), and the price is relatively accessible. (Bonus: for anyone also considering attending the Brand New Conference in New York this year, we are offering a 10% discount for it if you attend First Round.)

Seating is limited to 468. We expect — assume/hope/would-be-thrilled — that we will sell out so don’t wait until the last minute.

Hope to see you there!
