InterLink Conference

This past week we sent our designers to the InterLink Conference in Vancouver to update them on the progress of the web design and development industry, and empower them to push forward by sharing knowledge with others in the industry. This year’s conference was filled with thought-provoking talks centered around current trends in web design, highlighting the huge progression to mobile-friendly responsive web development, and other equally important topics which sometimes get overlooked such as content creation and organization, colour theory, and coding for accessibility. Our designers brought back some powerful tools essential for honing their craft and building better websites for our clients. More information can be found on the Interlink website: interlinkconference.com
