First Round

A one-day showcase of original presentations made to clients showing initial design explorations for logo, identity, and branding projects. Speakers will share their first-round presentation process by showing the original PDF/Keynote/PPT file that they presented to a client the very first time they saw a range of design explorations (or a single design exploration).
