Join us in Bringing a “Newbie” to HOW Design Live
by supporting the HOW Veterans Grant


HOW Conference speaker Cami Travis-Groves, Good Juju Spreader, is leading a dedicated group of HOW Design Live attendees (HOWies) to raise money to help one lucky designer, who might not otherwise be able to afford it, get to HOW Design Live 2013.

Remember your first HOW Conference? It blew your mind with amazing sessions and topics. You discovered that these are your people, who then became your extended family. You came home ready to design the world. As a HOW veteran, you now have the opportunity to share that HOW love by helping to send a newbie to HOW. Let's show them HOWie do it!

The HOW Veterans Grant will be funded through individual donations from creative professionals like you!

Winners will be awarded a Big Ticket Registration - donated by HOW Design Live and F+W Media, Inc., as well as airfare and hotel accommodations during the conference - which will be donated in full by HOW Veterans. (Value estimated at no more than $3000*)

Here’s how you can get involved:

We’ll honor your participation with a ribbon for your badge at the Conference in June!
