It’s been quite a busy fall for me, but finally I’m happy to announce the next Geek Meet here in Stockholm!

Presenting Vitaly Friedman

I am very proud and glad to welcome Vitaly Friedman as the speaker this time around, who is the creator and Editor-in-Chief for Smashing Magazine, which, I guess you all know, has been hugly successful over the last years. I thought it was about time to talk about design and user experiences, and I’ve had the pleasure to see Vitaly do it before, so I know he will deliver something really good to you!

The presentations

Vitaly will give two presentations during the evening:

The Invisible Side of Design

As designers, we tend to get distracted by aesthetics of our designs, and often do not pay enough attention to the other, invisible side of our creations.

This talk discusses the value of functionality, storytelling and thorough editorial work in Web. It argues about the significance of purpose, context and quality in our decisions. It also provides personal insights and practical examples of invisible design being used in practice.

Smashing Magazine: Behind the Scenes

This talk describes the main principles and philosophy of Smashing Magazine’s editorial work. It features the main tools, processes and organization involved to ensure the high quality of the publication. The talk also covers main mistakes, lessons learned and practical insights into company’s growth and evolution over the years.

Time & place

This time around, Geek Meet will be sponsored by Creuna, and will take place December 1st 18:00 in their office at Kungsholmsgatan 23 in Stockholm.. Creuna will also provide beer and pizza to every attendant, all free of charge.
