Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) June 8, 2010
Nicholson Kovac, Inc. is pleased to announce its sponsorship of D2W, a designer/developer workflow conference scheduled for June 19 and 20 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
The first of its kind in the Kansas City area, this conference aims to unite designers and developers by showing how their relationships improve with better workplace communications and an increased understanding of workflow, design and development.
“Without forward-thinking sponsors like Nicholson Kovac, it would be impossible to put this conference together,” said Dee Sadler, organizer of the D2W Conference. “Their sponsorship sends a clear message about how vital an improved workflow process is for creating better products and more value for agency clients everywhere.”
D2W focuses on providing both designers and developers with practical strategies to work between software applications more efficiently while connecting them with like-minded creators to exchange ideas, build relationships, and forge new creative and business connections. Though heavily focused on the digital arena, Sadler stresses that print designers interested in expanding their expertise to include Web-based applications will benefit as well.
“The focus of this conference is on workflow—workflow between designers and developers and workflow between applications," says Sadler. “Today's work environments require developers to know about design, and designers to know about development. This conference, which features some of the best speakers in the business, will provide both with indispensable knowledge they'll be able to use immediately.”
The two-day conference will include speakers specializing in flash catalyst product management, workflow management, Flash® Platforms, and Adobe® instruction. Attendees can join conversations about programming, integration between art and code, and various case studies in 60-minute sessions designed to promote collaboration.
“As an integrated marketing communications agency, nothing we do is a product of just one individual or program,” said Pete Kovac, President and CEO of Nicholson Kovac, Inc. “Since we’ve expanded our digital services group in recent months, staying true to an open system of communication that fosters collaboration among all team members has become more critical than ever. The D2W conference reflects that ideal.”
D2W is divided into three tracks—designer, developer, and hybrid—to focus on the distinct needs of each professional. In addition to career-specific sessions, participants also can choose to attend sessions focused on business and management topics.
All presentations from the conference will be streamed live online using an application called Adobe Connect and Presenter by SlideSix. Following the conference, attendees will have access to the recorded sessions via the D2W website.
