SEED Conference

On Monday, October 29, 2007 in Chicago, Jim Coudal, Jason Fried, and Carlos Segura will lead a presentation and discussion on design, entrepreneurship, and inspiration. We’re calling this one day event the SEED Conference. Attendance is limited to 135 people and the price is $399.

What you’ll learn

You’ll learn about taking control of your own work, seeking out methods to inspire new ideas, and adopting unconventional ideas about collaboration and business.

Who should attend

You should attend if you’re a designer (print, web, video) or a business-minded soul who’s looking to take your creative ideas and turn them into something satisfying and bankable. Anyone creative with an open mind will take away something useful.

The format

The format will be comfortable and open. Some lectures, some networking, and ample time for questions, discussion and interaction. This is a day of active learning, not just idle listening.

A wonderful venue

The venue will inform the discussion too. The auditorium at the Rem Koolhaas designed McCormick Tribune Campus Center was built with new ideas and is set amid the historic Mies-designed campus of IIT.

Bonus “Working-lunch”

A catered “Working-Lunch” will feature a talk about the IIT Campus and Mies van der Rohe by Public Radio host, architecture critic, and Loeb Fellow at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard, Edward Lifson.
