Crafting a Creative Culture–Jeff Veen at Design ’19

As we head toward our product design conference, Design ’19, we’re focussing on some of the sessions you’ll get the chance to see there.

We’re really excited to have Jeff Veen back in Australia to speak for a very long time. Jeff is a genuine legend of the design world, going back to his days two decades or more ago as a founding member of the Wired magazine web team. He was also founder of the ground breaking UX agency Adaptive Path, and the web-changing TypeKit. He’s been Vice President of Design at Adobe, and is now a Design Partner at VC firm True Ventures.

Jeff will open the conference with

 Crafting a Creative Culture

We have arrived in an age of design. No longer relegated to a function of the marketing department or tacked on to an engineering process, designers are increasingly taking leadership positions in the top companies in tech.

But how do we manage creative teams to achieve their full potential? Jeff will share stories from my years of leading product development — both successful and not — to show that investing in culture might be the best competitive edge you can gain.
