Re:Design/Inspire 2013 (Archive)

Los Angeles, CA

RE:DESIGN/Inspire took on the ultimate goal of any creative type—to be consistently and innovatively inspired. In 2013 we explored the idea of cross pollination: drawing from sources beyond traditional design to enhance, strengthen and inspire our work. Our session leaders featured some of graphic design’s brightest, and in the spirit of cross pollination we also heard from professionals from other fields.

Symposiarch Lawrence Azerrad of LADdesign and a group of inspiring speakers led the sessions October 21–22, 2013 at the SmogShoppe in Los Angeles.
