Rocketeers to speak during Big (D)esign Conference 2014 at the Addison Crowne Plaza Hotel

We’re a week away from The Big (D)esign Conference in Addison! For the last six years, designers, gamers, filmmakers, and industry leaders have come together to talk shop, exchange advice, and share insights into the world of design.

From September 4-6, there will be four keynote talks and 70 presentations by experts in User Experience, Social Marketing, Development, Gaming, and more.

Rocketeers Adam Polansky, Matt Johnson, and Brian Cope will also provide their expertise during the three-day conference at the Addison Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Polansky, UX strategist and conference cofounder, will deliver a keynote address at 5:00 p.m. on September 5 in the Trinity Ballroom.

Matt Johnson – the EVP of Bottle Rocket and GM of Thruster, our gaming division – and Thruster Project Manager Brian Cope will discuss “The New Normal of Virtual Reality” at 11:00 a.m. on September 6 in the Addison Lecture Hall.

Other notable speakers include Phil Tippett – an Academy Award winning visual effects artist best known for his work on films such as Star Wars and Jurassic Park.

Thursday is dedicated to two all-day workshops. Jo Anne Wright of SRA International will lead a workshop on Prototyping while Cory Lesbon of Lesbontech LLC will lead a workshop on Usability.
