Nothing is Precious: Designing Web Products

Join Etsy Creative Director Randy Hunt for an insider’s peek into the "world’s most vibrant handmade marketplace." Randy will touch upon the principles informing the creative behemoth's design decisions, as well as their occasionally surprising outcomes. Beyond the scope of web product design, these principles are applicable to any design process that embraces change and encourages learning from your audience.

Featuring an all-star roster of five Austin-area Etsy vendors, curated by AIGA Austin.
