How Open Licensing Is Transforming Design
When designers share their work under an open license, they invite others to build upon and transform their designs without asking for permission, sometimes even using them commercially. A few years ago, the idea of letting non-clients steal your work was crazy; today, it’s a big part of how designers network, collaborate, and create professional opportunities for themselves and each other.
This panel will explore the possibilities of open design, with panelists running the gamut from small, community-driven projects to major industry players. Learn why attitudes about open licensing and Creative Commons have changed in the design world, and what those changes mean for designers’ careers.
