The Business of Design: How To Be Slightly Less Terrible At Making Money For What You Do

Tuesday, June 17th – 9:50

Meagan will tell anyone who will listen that the business part is the hardest part of design for her, and as someone who regularly tweets about taking a day off to recover from Burrito Regret, you might be surprised she’d pretend to be an expert at managing a design company. But what all her past ineptitude means is this: I’ve made a lot of mistakes when it comes to making money for my work, and I want everyone to benefit from these failures.

I’ll share the lessons I’ve learned about getting the work you want, ensuring a project is a success, and getting paid for it when you’re done. Before you think “well that sounds soulless, I’m going to the NBC Studio Tour during her talk,” I should also tell you that thinking hard about how to be a better business person has also made me a better human being. So come share in a celebration of us all being slightly less terrible.
