Speaking at Design Week in Saskatoon

Design Council of Saskatchewan, Design Week 07

I’m excited to mention that I’ll be heading back to my hometown today for Design Week 07 in Saskatoon to speak. If you happen to be there, be sure to say hello. After the presentation is over I’ll be placing my slides on SlideShare. Every speaker has their favourite venues for different reasons – for me to be invited back to where things all started means a lot. It also means that I might see real snow for the first time in over a year. I don’t really consider what happened last year in New York to be much of a winter…

The Future of Design Now with Michael Surtees
Friday, November 16, 7PM to 9PM
Lower Lounge, Mendel Art Gallery

The rules of design are changing as fast as the speed of communication today. Michael will be talking about his offline/online experiences in New York and sharing the questions he’s asking to keep ahead.

    Good luck with the visit and the talk. One day I will get to the prairies. For now I’ll live vicariously through you and my other Saskatchewanian friends. And there are many!

    Thanks for this post, Michael! I am so looking forward to seeing your presentation (and suddenly feeling fortunate to live in Saskatoon!?) Thanks so much for taking the time out of your schedule to come and do this for us. I expect it will be very interesting and informative lecture (and I suspect it will rock as well!)

    Good luck!
