This year marked our 15th SXSW Interactive. We had such a great time meeting those of you who were able to stop by our Open House and/or the SXSW Interactive Closing Party (with amazing live performances by Z-Trip, Ludacris and TV on the Radio) -not to mention everyone who swang by Jon Setzen’s and Jacob Shin’s talks to say hi. We hope you enjoyed attending our events as much as we enjoyed putting them together for you and wanted to thank you for coming.

With SXSW Interactive officially only a few short weeks away, we wanted to highlight the two talks our Creative Director, Jon Setzen, and our VP of Marketing, Jacob Shin, will be giving on Friday, March 13 and Monday, March 16, respectively. We encourage you to swing by and say hi!
No, I will (Probably) Not Redesign Your Website. Jon Setzen, Creative Director
In his presentation, Jon Setzen will explain why web designers should strive to choose good people over what seems like a good project. Using his personal journey as a designer as an example, he will also touch on how web designers can benefit from stepping outside of their online comfort zone, and turn that "Can you redesign my website?" project into something more.
Interested in attending? Here are all the details you need.
Your Company’s Value Proposition is as Clear as Mud. Jacob Shin, VP of Marketing
Because you rarely get a second chance to make a first impression, Jacob Shin will take a closer look at how to identify, develop and communicate a compelling value proposition that will make your brand stand apart and help you optimize your digital marketing efforts.
If your interest is piqued, here is when and where you can attend Jacob’s talk.
Hope to see you then!
