Presenter: Justin Ahrens. "Justin Ahrens's passion for life is rooted in his creative firm's dedication to \"making creative matter®.\" For over 15 years now, Justin has led Rule29 in a commitment to both great design and helping others think differently about the world around them. Through a collaborative approach in both strategy and design, Rule29's culture is just as important as the work. This is particularly evident by Rule29's involvement in numerous social causes, including substantial work in Africa. Justin and Rule29 have been recognized by most major competitions and publications, including AIGA, Communication Arts, Graphis, the Webby Awards, HOW, Print, and many more. Justin has also been a consistent voice for the design and business community as it relates to design for good and balancing life and career. He explores these topics through writing and speaking nationally and internationally at conferences such as Design Thinkers, Adobe MAX, Brand New, HOW, and AIGA. For more on work-life balance, check out his book, Life Kerning: Creative Ways to Fine-Tune Your Perspective on Career & Life. Justin's obsession with design is only overshadowed by his passion for exploring life with his wife, Sarah, and their four amazing kids (who think Dad's job is listening to music, drawing pictures, and playing on the computer)
