Phoenix Design Week Roundup!

A walk through Phoenix Design Week with Resound!

As you know, we were looking forward to Phoenix Design Week for an extremely long time. It came and it went way faster than any of us would have liked, but we have some good news. We can relive it over and over with pictures that our incredible “team photographer,” Matt, took while we were there.

If you weren’t there, that’s ok! Take a look at our pictures below, get a feel for what happened, and then just tell other people you went (we won’t tell).

And so it begins! Here’s Christian in front of the welcome sign, lookin’ to get things started at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Here’s Niki Blaker (https://twitter.com/nikiblaker), President of AIGA AZ. She is the one that was in charge of organizing the conference. We are definitely thankful for everything she did!

The guy on the left is Altay Sendil (http://www.pinterest.com/asendil/) user experience researcher at Pinterest. Marc Oxborrow (https://twitter.com/marcxist) is on the right. He MC’d the whole conference and did an unbelievable job!

Oh, look! Mr. Jarred Spool (https://twitter.com/jmspool)  He is the founder of User Interface Engineering. He spoke on the anatomy of design. More specifically, on, “how do we design.” He was definitely one of our favorite speakers throughout the conference.

Jennifer Hom (https://twitter.com/jhomnomnom) is a Google Doodler. We don’t mean she sits at home and doodles the Google logo either. She is 1 of 9 Google Doodlers in the world. They are the people responsible for making the doodles on Google’s homepage. It’s a full-time job and these intricate doodles can take anywhere from 2 to 6 months.

“Look, we want you to express yourself. Mkay? If you feel like the bare minimum amount of flair is enough, then ok, but…some people choose to wear more, and we encourage that.”

The gang’s all here! Well, except Kayla of course. Just hanging out in the lobby on Sunday afternoon.

This is us sitting at the brick pizza place we almost ate at… Confused? So were we! They only had one poor person working there, it took us forever to get seated, and we never ended up ordering, so we just left!

We ended up here! At a place called Boka. It wasn’t brick pizza, but it was still good!

The whole week was such an amazing experience, and we’re so glad we got the chance to be a part of it. It’s something we look forward to every year, and this year definitely didn’t disappoint.
