Thoughts on the web design conference in Hong Kong

Earlier this month a couple of excited turtles headed down to this first-of-its-kind conference in Hong Kong, promising well-known international do-ers and thinkers presenting, and an in-depth workshop focussed around cutting-edge web design and web development. We were not disappointed.

While Hong Kong has had various other related events like Startup Weekend, Rise Conference, UX Hong Kong, this feels like the first one dedicated to the art of web design. In a city that is not necessarily known for its respect for great digital design, it’s great to have such an event here to help raise the profile of the industry.

We also met lots of great people, and it was an inspiring day that had us rushing back to the office on Monday to try out a few new tricks, and inspired many heated discussions on nerdy topics like Emotional Design, the state of CAPTCHA, and Asian language typography best-practices.

We look forward to this conference making a positive impact on the HK design environment.
