Jake Nickell at Made By Few: Get Those Ideas Out of Your Head
Jake Nickell, founder of Threadless.com, was one of several nationally prominent designers who spoke at the second-annual Made By Few designer/tech conference in Little Rock over the weekend.
He offered some good advice to the 300 or so who filled the Great Hall on Saturday at the Clinton Presidential Center for a day of showcase, education and inspiration (perhaps even a little perspiration).
Courtesy of MxF co-founder Abbi Siler, Nickell told attendees to get their ideas down on paper — “Doodle, try, sketch, tinker. Get it out of your head.”
Other speakers included Micah Baldwin of Graphicly, Crystal Beasley of Mozilla, James White of Signalnoise and Aaron Draplin of Draplin Design Co. Abbi shared a few other tidbits from speakers:
- Be fearless about your work. — White
- Personal passion should never be replaced with monetary goals. — White
- Do good work for good people. — Draplin
The event (IA was a sponsor) concluded its second run to rave reviews. Here’s video courtesy of IA and Arkansas Business.
We’ll have more in this space — some first-hand accounts — coming up from Abbi’s fellow MxF co-founders Arlton Lowry and Gabe Couch, both on MxF and its pre-event Designed By Few.
