Dwell on Design Event – 6/26-6/28

If you’re in or around LA this weekend, hop on over to the LA Convention Center for the Dwell on Design event. Now in its second year, the three-day design festival brings together the best and brightest from the design industry to offer visitors "real live modern design" in the form of an expansive exhibition, design conference, home tours and special events. Touted as the largest modern design event, it’ll showcase the people, products and ideas that are driving design and architecture today. Tonight, Daniel Pink, will deliver the keynote speech called Surprising Science of Motivation and Creativity. He’ll ask, “How do we motivate ourselves and others to perform at a higher level?” Pink is the best-selling author of one of my favorite books, A Whole New Mind. It’s an event that modern enthusiasts won’t want to miss! http://www.dwellondesign.com/index.php
