Can you have it all?

In an ideal world we would be able to get the things we want immediately, in perfect condition AND at just the right price (preferably free). Unfortunately the real world of business doesn’t work that way. We have to make some compromises and choose the project parameters we value most, while sacrificing others.

Because of time and budgetary restrictions, clients are normally forced to pick from only two of the following three project goals - Fast, Good and cheap, while sacraficing the latter. It doesn't have to be this way anymore. Discover how open tools and resources are helping designers do the impossible and create amazing work despite their limitations.

Make it work

Open source design tools and resources can help designers break out of the "pick two" paradigm. Open resources enable designers to work more quickly with smaller budgets, but still deliver professional results.

In this session, we will discuss:

Brief history and introduction to copyright and licensing
Ways designers are using open licensing in their work and to empower others
How to find open tools and resources
Join me and learn how sharing our collective creative resources can help us be better designers and create something that is greater than the sum of its parts.
