Best of Graphic Design Conferences 2014: Connect, collaborate and be forever changed: Grab your the ticket to WMC Fest!
Three Days that Will Change Your Life: the best of graphic design conferences 2014 is upon us!
When your head is down and nose is to the grindstone, it’s easy to feel disconnected from the world, from your fellow creatives. As projects pile up, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and to even lose that fire you once had as a designer, artist, musician, entrepreneur, maker, doer, dreamer.
What if I told you you have the opportunity to breathe again?
Attend our 5th annual Weapons of Mass Creation Fest (running August 15 – 17) and you’ll experience three days of inspiration on overdrive: three days surrounded by folks just like you, who have all the passion in the world, yearning to become better than they once were. They’ll want to hear your successes, your struggles, to collaborate and connect. They’ll help you see life and work with new eyes. They’ll ask nothing in return.
And you? You’ll leave feeling recharged, focused, energized like never before. You’ll leave with incredible bonds only created through mutual respect and understanding. You’ll be an integral part of a movement, a part of something bigger than yourself. You will be forever altered.
If you’d like to be a part of three life changing days, you can grab your Early Bird ticket now by:
