Award winner Design director Arem Duplessis from The New York Times Magazine will be in Dubai as a speaker at the Creative Design Conference on October 7, 2013.

Duplessis has led a Design department that was named Design Team of The Year by The Art Directors Club (ADC) for three consecutive years (2008-2011). He will share his experiences in creative design and design team management during the conference.

It is the right time to listen to Duplessis’ professional advice and insights on how to maintain the quality of design and how to motivate the design team and so on, especially in a downturn time, where everything is changing and uncertain. This is a good opportunity for any publishing house or creative department to participate and learn how to be more creative and how to survive in this crisis.
