Create Upstate 2015

Create Upstate is back and badder than ever!

Create Upstate is a two-day conference tailor-made for designers and makers of wonderful things in Upstate New York. It’s a celebration of design and draws together the communities of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany, Saratoga, Binghamton, Ithaca, and the Hudson Valley.

This year we’re shaking things up! On top of bringing in some of the most talented designers in Upstate NY, we’ve added a few speakers from the larger design community – Mitch Goldstein, Amanda Altman, Jason Pamental, Lena Levine, Dora Drimalas and Dana Tanamachi-Williams.

Once again we’re adding something new to the mix with a full day of Workshops to compliment our Friday sessions. Whether it’s learning how best to use type on the web or trying your hand at calligraphy, we’ve got you covered. Come a day early and sign up for a Modern Calligraphy, Responsive Typography or theContent Strategy Crash Course workshop on Thursday, April 16th.
