Brand New Conference features Jamie Koval as speaker

The acclaimed and popular Brand New Conference comes to Chicago in 2014. On September 25-26, over 700 designers will descend on the Harris Theater at Millennium Park for the design community’s premier conference on branding. The conference is a product of Under Consideration and an offshoot of Brand New, a website showcasing the best corporate and brand identity projects.

VSA Partners’ Client Engagement Lead Jamie Koval will present a session showcasing the process and development of VSA’s work for a number of clients. Other session presenters include Jonathan Lee of Google UXA, writer/publisher Adrian Shaughnessy and Lance Wyman; 15-minute speakers include Chicago designers Justin Ahrens, Jim Coudal, Bob Faust, Dawn Hancock, Dave Mason and Alisa Wolfson.
