About the speaker
Mig is a designer and writer at 37signals where they make beautiful, smart, and simple apps that help people work better together.
When he’s not setting type and hacking at code, he spends his nights teaching design at The Starter League and mentors with the AIGA.
Before settling in at 37signals, Mig cut his teeth doing work for other really great people including Threadless, Google, and Harley-Davidson. He’s been known to take down opponents in Layer Tennis, and has been featured in a few fancy design publications to boot. Every now and again he’ll travel to speak about making things and caring about your craft. His talks are usually funny. Mostly. Sometimes. Above all, he likes pizza, wearing ties and drinking whiskey. You can follow him on Twitter, if you’d like.

I made this, and I was damn proud of this when I made this (...) and I didn't want it to be beautiful; I just wanted it to exist. — Mig Reyes
