Struktur Event 2016 Ticket Giveaway
Now in its third year, Struktur Event is a creative conference that gives active outdoor designers a place to connect, jam on ideas, hone skills and foster design innovation. Unlike a trade show where products are front and center, Struktur delves into a host of aspects related to design, from material research and manufacturing, to business models and user experience.
This year the conference will involve two days of curated speakers, with a focus on exploring the challenges that designers face in their profession. Industry experts such as Nasahn Sheppard (VP of Design from REI), Karuna Scheinfeld (VP of Design from Woolrich), Carl Moriarity (Design Director of Apparel at Arc’teryx), Jeff Popp (MHM and CO.ALITION), and Aaron James Draplin (Draplin Design Co.) are just a few of the speakers who will be dishing up valuable insights. Panel discussions will deliver plenty of wisdom too, with topics including ethical and responsible design, the direct-to-consumer business model, and deciding where to manufacture product.
But speakers and panel discussions are not the only attractions to look forward to. Digging down into hands-on events, a variety of workshops will be on offer to help designers develop new skills, network, and gain experience with new design processes and materials.
For designers, Struktur offers a wealth of information, contacts and experience – and we’re giving you the chance to attend for free…
