2014 Core77 Conference June 19, 2014

At long last, the first Core77 Conference is officially open for business! We've got the initial round of speakers listed, with more still to come. Hopefully you've already arranged your schedule to be in Brooklyn on Thursday, June 19, so all you have to do now is buy your ticket and you're good to go. We recommend you act now, as the tickets are very limited and are going fast.

In addition to a full day of presentations and discussions, we'll be broadcasting two Core77 Design Awards jury announcements from the stage, giving away some great shwag and then throwing a bash that night to wrap it all up. All conference attendees will get VIP access to the party (a.k.a. cut the line and get an open bar) as a bonus for spending the day with us.

Check the website now for a list of speakers, information on the schedule and venue and a convenient link to the ticket purchase page. See you there!

It has been only a few short months since Core77 and IDSA officially joined forces in our new strategic partnership, but members from both organizations can now enjoy one of the first fruits of their new relationship. We are very pleased to unveil the IDSA Job Board as the latest addition to the growing Coroflot Design Employment Network.

IDSA is the flagship organization of our industry, so their new job board is a huge step forward in providing the most comprehensive job search and employment resources for employers and working industrial designers. We are excited to be reaching a greater audience and serving them the most relevant job listings in the industry.

Take a moment to check out the new job board here and discover all the opportunities it has to offer.

Please join us in welcoming the latest addition to the Coroflot Design Employment Network - Arts Thread, the home for new creatives, bridging the gap between education and industry.

Arts Thread is our first over seas partner and brings a strong, growing presence across Europe to our partner board network. This rich resource has tripled in size over the past several years and now represents creatives in over 25 countries and has partnerships with approximately 90 schools and universities.

While Arts Thread provides content and tools that cater mainly to students and recent graduates, their coverage of industry events, editorial sections and practical guides appeals to creative professionals of all levels.

Now that they've joined the ever-expanding Coroflot Design Employment Network, Arts Thread provides a list of exciting job opportunities from across the globe to compliment their already useful line up of resources.

This week we're happy to welcome F+W Media back into the Coroflot Design Employment Network. We launched our newest partner job board a few days ago, servicing both the HOW and Print Magazine web sites.

F+W is a great fit for our partner network. Matching the range of creative career opportunities found throughout the Coroflot network with F+W's audience of practicing design professionals makes perfect sense.

This is the first partner job board to benefit from a big technology upgrade on a number of fronts, and we'll be announcing several new partners in the coming weeks.

If you haven't looked for a new job recently, there's no better time to start than right now! Check out the HOW Job Board, and while you're there take a look through some of the other career resources they've got.

It's not every day two organizations come together to create something even greater than the sum of their parts. It is with great excitement that we announce a strategic partnership between Core77 and the Industrial Designers Society of America.

Over the coming year Core77 and IDSA will work together to mutually promote programming offered by both sides to our respective audiences. In keeping with tradition, Core77 will host the portfolio review and a social event at the annual IDSA International Conference (taking place this year in Chicago, from August 20-23). Core77 will implement a new job board at the IDSA web site, welcoming IDSA as a partner into the Coroflot Job Network.

IDSA is the voice of the industrial design profession, advancing the quality and positive impact of design, so a partnership with Core77 is a natural fit. "An official collaboration between our organizations makes perfect sense," said Stuart Constantine, cofounder of Core77. "Our motives are well aligned and we are both committed to providing the broader design community with unparalleled professional and creative opportunities."

"While IDSA and Core77 have been cooperating informally for several years, we are happy to have a formal agreement in place to share job board postings and promotion of events that will bring value to designers and the design world," said George McCain, IDSA's chairman of the board. "IDSA has the utmost admiration for the online community that Core77 has built and is honored to become an integral part of it."

Also, if you haven't done so already, there's still time to enter your best work in the 2013 IDEA awards. The final deadline is tonight (Monday Feb 25) so stop procrastinating and get your entry in now!
