Mark your Calendars: Nearly Impossible 10/30

We’re so excited about the upcoming Nearly Impossible Conference, coming to 501 Union on October 30th. If you are a maker or designer, you don’t want to miss this day-long event that will give you and your business a great boost.


This is the second year that the Nearly Impossible Conference comes to Brooklyn. Product companies come together to learn how to build strong brands and grow successful businesses. Expect a full day of learning through keynote talks, panel discussions, in-depth workshops and one-on-one expert lab sessions. Their impressive line-up includes product makers and experts from various industries like retail, manufacturing, marketing, and much more. Who will be there, you wonder? A few highlights:

– Kyle Andrew from Kate Spade will talk about building a lifestyle brand
– A panel of heavyweights (Abe Burmeister of Outlier, photographer Erica McCartney and Katie Evans of Ivanka Trump) will discuss the role of product imagery and how you can create beautiful product images with a consistent brand voice
– Nicole Fenton, co-author of the great book Nicely Said, will lead a Copywriting and Content Strategy workshop
– Office Hours will give you the opportunity to sit down one-on-one with talented professionals like Ally Van Houten of Mailchimp, web developer Zoe Rooney or Rita Mehta of The American Edit.
