Hang Time Seattle

A full-day inspiration fest for designers—brought to you by Dribbble

May 15, 2018 Bell Harbor Seattle, WA

We had so much fun at Hang Time Boston, we’re doing it again! Hang Time is a one-day design conference where you’ll get inspired by the best and brightest in the design community.

Hang Time After Party

After an inspiring day listening to presentations, we’ll move over to the Waterlink Atrium (also located at Bell Harbor) for an amazing after party. Hang Time Seattle attendees will have VIP access. Hang out with the Dribbble community, participate in hands-on-activities, enjoy drinks and snacks, purchase merch from Aaron Draplin and other vendors, and a few surprises!

Plus: Behind the scenes with the Draplin Design Co.

Special Workshop — $99

During the event, we have the unique opportunity to host a workshop with Aaron Draplin. In this workshop, you'll get the inside scoop with Aaron Draplin of Draplin Design Co. and learn what goes on behind the scenes!

Please note: This workshop is limited to 40 people. This ticket is for the 2-hour workshop only, separate from the Hang Time Seattle conference. If you plan on attending Hang Time and the workshop, please note that you'll miss some of the Hang Time presentations.

Why Should I Attend?

At Dribbble, we have core values that guide how we work. During Hang Time Seattle, we’ll be exploring the importance we place on Quality over Quantity. To our team, that means we strive to have a craftsman’s attention to detail in everything we do and we don’t ship work we’re not proud of. You’ll leave Hang Time Seattle with some valuable takeaways on how to do your best work.

What Designers Had To Say

about Hang Time Boston
“#Hangtime with @dribbble yesterday was the inspiration I needed. Totally nerded out getting to meet @debbiemillman — ‘Do not be afraid to want a lot.’”

Alice Donovan Rouse

“Hang Time packed more content, learning opportunities, and straight-up fun into one day than should be humanly possible. The group of folks I attended with all left energized—with heads full of new ideas, ready to take on the world.”

Ryan Arruda
