The Back of the Napkin: Where Design Meets Visual Thinking

A session at HOW Interactive Design Conference (HIDC) 2014 — San Francisco

Wednesday 19th November, 2014

11:00am to 12:00pm (PST)

Dan Roam is one of the speakers you’ll meet who will walk you through the theoretical side of web design. The author of Fast Company‘s #1 creativity book of the year, The Back of the Napkin has helped leaders at Microsoft, Boeing, eBay, Kraft, Gap, IBM, the US Navy, the United States Senate, and the White House solve complex problems with simple pictures.

In Dan’s San Francisco session The Back of the Napkin: Where Design Thinking Meets Visual Thinking, you’ll learn about Dan’s neurobiologically-based “visual toolkit,” a method for clarifying even the most complicated idea, which will help frame all your future web design decisions.

As the founder and president of Digital Roam, Inc., Dan is uniquely positioned to help designers execute on design problems when “words don’t work.” He brings interactive expertise and experience to HOW’s west coast interactive event.
