The inaugural ARTIFACT Conference in Austin was such a rousing success, we’re doing it again, this time on the East Coast in lovely Providence, RI. Why Providence? Because it is a historical gem and has a great tech scene, design schools, and fabulous restaurants and shops. Plus, it’s affordable!

ARTIFACT EAST features (nearly) the same amazing line-up of speakers and sessions as Austin, so if you were one of the many who were not able to get a ticket to that sold-out event, here’s your chance.

ARTIFACT focuses on the design process—how you do your creative work and how you communicate your ideas to clients, stakeholders, and developers. Come learn about responsive workflows, prototyping strategies, new tools, and deliverables that make sense. Our mission is to deliver sessions that are packed with how-to information and practical takeaways, topped off with a layer of inspiration, all delivered by top-notch designers in our field.
