The ICON 8 design team has been hard at work building a brand new information driven user experience that works across multiple device types. Organizers of the event hope that when the mini-beta version is launched in a week, artists and attendees find a site that is easy to navigate, provides you with valuable information on the conference and our program of speakers, workshops, events, symposia and most importantly your chance to register at the early bird discount rate. ICON 8 The Illustration Conference takes place from July 9-12, 2014 at the Portland Art Museum in Portland, Oregon. ICON brings together top illustrators, designers, educators, representatives and art buyers to explore the future of illustration.
