Web Directions East

Tokyo will host Web Directions East, part of the Australian conference series covering everything from design to back-end development.

In November, Tokyo will be host to Web Directions East, part of the Web Directions conference series started in Australia in 2004 covering everything from design to back-end development.

The event organizers, including our good friend Yasuhisa, has gathered up some of the biggest names in American and European web design, a rare treat for Tokyo. I’m personally most interested in seeing Jeffrey Veen, an ex-Adaptive Path web designer, who made a brief stop at Google to lead the redesign of one of the most visually beautiful Google interface and one that we use everyday, Google Analytics.

At around ¥35,000 a day, Web Directions isn’t a steal, but considering the airplane tickets it usually takes to see this caliber show, they should have no trouble filling seats.

Hope to see you there!
