Keynote Speaker: Justin Ahrens

“Seeing Different”

We are all built to see the world differently. It’s one of our unique, innovative traits. We all often say or feel that we want to be a part of changing the world in some way, but how do we actually accomplish this and can we actually make a difference? This presentation will give you thoughts, prompts and examples on how you can use your gifts to See Different.
For over 19 years, Justin Ahrens has led his creative firm, Rule29, in its commitment to “Making Creative Matter®” through great design and by helping others think differently about the world around them. With a collaborative approach to both strategy and design, Rule29’s culture is just as important as the work it creates. Rule29 has been recognized by major competitions and publications, including AIGA, Communication Arts, Graphis, HOW, Print, The Webby Awards, and many more. Ahrens has been a consistent voice for the design and business community in areas around Design for Good and work/life balance. Justin currently serves as a National Board Member for the AIGA.
