Every March, leaders and innovators from around the globe converge on Austin, Texas, for SXSW, one of the world’s most exciting and innovative festivals. Killer Infographics is thrilled to return to the SXSW Trade Show in 2019 for the 4th year in a row with a booth where visitors can learn about our services. Killer CEO Amy Balliett, meanwhile, will present at SXSW for her third year in a row, with a talk called “The Visual-First Method: Boost Conversions Now.”

SXSW combines a huge variety of speaking tracks with fabulous live concerts, exhibitions, pop-ups, activations, and brand innovations. You can see great comedy in the morning and cutting-edge films in the afternoon. This year’s festival takes place March 8–17, when — if 2018 numbers are any indication — more than 75,000 people will attend the conference and more than 160,000 will show up for the music.

What Is the Visual-First Method?

What is the Visual-First Method? It’s a systematic approach to shifting company culture and equipping organizations to connect and thrive in a world that demands quality visual content. At her session, Amy will share a 3-step process that can help any organization develop a Visual-First Culture. What’s more, attendees will walk away with actionable tips on how to optimize their visuals for specific goals, audiences, and channels in a way that will boost engagement with both internal and external communications.

The SXSW Trade Show

Killer Infographics SXSW 2018 Booth

Here at Killer, we’re already packing our suitcases for another whirlwind trip down to Austin. The Trade Show, which takes place March 10–13 this year, is an energetic environment unlike anywhere else on Earth, where you can see more than 700 exhibitors. Last year, we saw everything from giant robot arms to interactive simulations to specialty Stroopwafel chefs (a team favorite). There are few other places you can meet this many innovators in the same room.

If you stop by booth #1233, you can talk to our Chief Marketing Officer, Charlie Holbert, about how we design custom, goal-oriented visual campaigns for our clients. Or you can talk about interactive content and motion graphics with Chief Creative Officer Josh Miles. You’re also likely to run into Amy, or another member of our accounts and marketing leadership. There’s one thing we all have in common: we love helping companies design the best visual strategies for their goals and audience.

We sincerely hope that you stop by and say hello. See you at SXSW!
