From March 9-14, Huge will be based out of Austin for SXSW Interactive. If you're attending the festival as well, join us at The Midnight Cowboy, one of the top-ranked speakeasies in the country, and our home away from home for the week. Open from 10 AM until 2 AM daily, we’ll have breakfast every morning, an open bar all day, and provocative backyard talks in the evenings.
It's the best place in Austin to take a meeting, get some work done, and chat with Huge employees from across the country.
Entrance is permitted based on capacity.

Designing with Bias
As we’re creating products and services for users, should we put gender consideration into the design process? We’re all working from user interfaces that learn from us, but could that experience assume something helpful based on our gender? What are the cues that lead people to believe products are for them? Hear from product designers at Google and Amazon, a cognitive research scientist, and creative agency Deutsch on the opportunities for more contextual awareness in product design.
