This October 17-19, GIANT Conference is taking over Uptown and it’s going to be BIG (pun intended).

What exactly is GIANT?

It’s a UX conference focused on the craft and creativity of visual design, interaction design, information architecture, content strategy, digital marketing and other related fields.

To put it a little more simply, GIANT is an event for people who do rad work. If that’s you, then you won’t want to miss out.

Along with the keynote speakers, there will also be some amazing session speakers from big companies like FullStory, Coca-Cola, IBM, REI and more.

Super interesting speaking topics.

I mean, the opening talk is called “Hairy Arms, Painting Ducks and Design Decisions.” I’m already hooked.

First, Get Your Head out of Your Ass. @uxcrank #giantconf

Other speaking topics include “Your UX Team is Run Like a Circus,” “Nerds in a Pool: Knowledge Sharing and Creativity in Development,” “I Find Your Lack of Women in STEM Disturbing” and many others.

In addition to more technical topics, there are quite a few talks about content strategy, branding and other related areas. So don’t be intimidated if you aren’t a designer.

It’s being held in a really cool location.

Forget boring hotel banquet halls and convention centers. GIANT is being held at the Mint Museum Uptown. In case you aren’t familiar, this is a pretty sick venue. Just look at it.

There’s going to be swag.

GIANT conferences always have swag. T-shirts. Stickers. Prepare yourself.

Fullstory is sponsoring a fancy coffee bar.

Creatives love caffeine. Enough said.

You’ll meet some really interesting people.

GIANT is all about inspiring creativity and what’s more inspiring than hanging with other people who do rad work like you?
