12 SESSIONS30 MINUTES EACH8:45 am to 5:00 pm

Speakers share their first-round presentation process by showing the original PDF/Keynote/PPT file that they presented to a client the very first time they saw a range of design explorations (or a single design exploration).

Reminder: First Round is a bootstrapped event. There are no sponsors and registration costs are kept to a minimum, so there is no free coffee in the morning, no goodie bag with swag, and no fancy staging. Depending on venue flexibility we will provide water bottles (in small quantities to avoid single-use plastic as much as possible) and we do always scatter some bite-size candies in the afternoon. So, bring your coffee in the morning, a refillable water bottle, and any snacks you need to survive over nine hours of awesome content.
