A Big Bang
Every Small Talk is an event not to be missed, but this one is extra special because it’s the first, tangible manifestation of the chapter’s newfound commitment to the interaction design community. Our board of directors is a diverse lot, but there are a few of us who are dyed in the wool Web people, and we’re putting in an extra effort to try and make the chapter’s work more relevant to those of us who work online. This is just the beginning, and it’s always nice to begin with a bang, in my opinion. I think it’s safe to say that Jeffrey, who needs no introduction as the spiritual father of the modern approach to Web design, is a heck of a bang.
Jeffrey’s talk is also the first one in this season’s Small Talks series. The event will take place on Tue 17 Oct at the Bumble and Bumble building on West Thirteenth Street, in what’s known to New Yorkers as ‘The Meat-packing District.’ I’ll have more information soon on his talk as well as the others we have lined up, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peak at the fantastic promotional poster designed by the great folks on the board’s branding committee.
