ThinkVisibility: Speaker Tips & Advice

Yesterday, I attended my sixth ThinkVisibility conference.

This year’s conference was particularly significant for two reasons: it was the first time I’d attended ThinkVisibility in a non-SEO specific role and it was also the first time I had attended the conference representing The Presentation Designer.

Academia Sucks the Soul Out of Design

Like any good book or a gripping action movie plot, I want to tell you a story today.

This story has one main protagonist; say hello to ‘Mr. Academia‘. The problem I have with academia isn’t that learning is a dangerous thing (learning is one the best things you can do in life).  It just happens that academia taught us all to design badly and that this is the accepted consensus.
