RE:Design/Inspire Conference Giveaway

Update: This giveaway is now closed.

Today I’m happy to offer one lucky reader a free pass to the next RE:DESIGN conference, RE:DESIGN Inspire, which is coming up in September. Here are the details:

RE:DESIGN/Inspire will take place at Public in Chicago on Sept 23 + 24. For these talks, we’ll sit down with creatives that have accomplished the ultimate trifecta—they imagine, execute, and inspire others. Our small-scale discussions will take on the ultimate goal of any creative type—to be consistently and innovatively inspired. Session leaders include Brian Singer, CD, 1000 Journals; David Usui and Ben Wu, co-founders, Lost & Found Films; Lawrence Azerrad, CD, LAD Design; Jason Katz, Story Supervisor, Pixar and many more!

The Fine Print:
The giveaway includes one pass to the RE:DESIGN/Inspire conference, valued at $695.00. Winner is responsible for travel and lodging for the event. Winner will be selected at random. The giveaway will be open from now through this coming Friday, July 20th at 6:00 PM EST. In order to enter, simply leave a comment here with the session leader you’re most excited to hear from. Good luck!
