The comp is King...or used to be.

The design comp has had a long reign as the singular means by which a designer communicates design intention. Its power is garnered from a single screen landscape, but its prominence is rapidly coming to end as we move into an era of modular design in the Fluid Web. 

Design Lead Nicole Mors will discuss the future of design communication in a post-comp world.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by gerry blakney. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

As retail models change, so does the purchasing experience for consumers. This is most pronounced in eCommerce, which retailers are using in new and innovative ways to capture sales. This interactive event will examine this shift and what it means for content creators. It will be hosted at the newly renovated eROI headquarters, along with snacks and a hosted bar.

Trust your employees and expect great things.
I wrote a post about selling, Glengarry Glen Ross, and a barber who I respect and love very much. This my friends, may be a read worth reading, but I happen to be biased. Let me know what you think_

Design is no longer a single person in a cave on an Apple II. With the current pace of technology advancement, rapid-fire collaboration can happen across borders, languages, and disciplines. Work is no longer the product of an individual, but that of a collective or group.

In this panel, we will explore how collaboration has developed across multiple disciplines, and how it influences our tools and techniques. We will also examine how collaboration is changing creative leadership moving forward in the industry.

Hosted in eROI's new event space with a hosted bar, snacks from World Foods and ice cream from Salt & Straw.

PANELISTS
Kelley Roy, Director/Founder, ADX 
Kim Malek, Owner, Salt & Straw
Pippa Arend, Development Director, p:ear
Van Havig, Master Brewer, Gigantic Brewing

Moderated by Gerry Blakney, Creative Director, eROI

Just eight years ago, Justin Timberlake was bringing sexy back, Blu-Ray format was released, and emails contained nothing more than text and links. Today, emails can be diverse, fluid, and beautiful. How did we get here, and what is in the future for email?

In this event, Design Lead Nicole Mors and Development Lead Matt Grantski will dive deep into the fossil records of email design and development, study its quick evolution into what it is today, and imagine where it will go in eight more years.
