We know you love working with design.
You’re probably designing on your desk now—chained to it like a creative genius.
However, face time with other designers also matters. Studies indicate that networking and being in open networks of contacts is one indicator of success. Attending events such as conferences not only connects you with potential collaborators, clients, and friends, but also helps you connect the dots creatively. Get inspired and all fired up to make beautiful, well-designed websites and digital products.
We created Form Function & Class because we recognize this need—to go beyond what you can learn online and experience actual learning in a conference setting.
At FFC6, you’ll learn web design case studies, best practices, and solutions while interacting with your peers and colleagues. Everything you can take home from the conference will help you effectively meet and overcome the biggest web design challenges you are facing today!
Form Function and Class is the main event of the Philippine Web Designers Organization a grassroots, volunteer-run, non-profit organization that helps develop the local community by championing professionalism & excellence in crafting interfaces for the Web. Last year we had a star-studded lineup featuring Jina Bolton, Sacha Greif, John Allsopp, and more.
This year, we’re bringing in six amazing speakers from all over the globe:
BRAD FROST — web designer, author, speaker, consultant, the creator of Atomic Design, and one of the leading web standards advocates at Future Friendly. He will also hold a special Masterclass on Responsive Design on November 15.
RACHEL NABORS — an award-winning cartoonist and an Invited Expert by the W3C on web animation. You will learn how you can improve the user experience of your projects, leave a great impression on your users, and bring delight to your customers through various animation techniques.
HOLGER BARTEL — web design consultant and frontend developer living in Hong Kong. You will learn common design and development mistakes, ranging from design implementations to technical issues, and how to avoid them.
ANGELA SALUD CHUA — visual & user experience designer who has been crafting web and mobile experiences for 8 years. You will learn how to exercise experimentation and iteration in your design work.
ANGELA OBIAS — consultant and co-founder of Priority Studios (a design research consultancy), teacher at the Ateneo De Manila University and product design mentor for startup incubator Ideaspace Foundation. You will learn how to get a good way to “read” data insights, used by research practitioners to read data and consumer behavior.
JAMES CABRERA — self-taught UX/UI Designer at Refinery29 and proud Fil-Am based in New York City. You will learn key strategies for what makes a successful product designer, above just being a regular one.

Let’s make it even easier
Here’s an email template you can send to your boss:
Our company has always been committed to creating amazing websites for our customers and stakeholders. In line with our commitment, I’d like to inform you about an upcoming conference that will be of value to us.
The Philippine Web Designers Organization (a grassroots web design community known for bringing in international talented design speakers) has organized a conference on web design called Form Function & Class 6 (FFC6). I believe we should join this conference for the following reasons:
FFC6 will feature Brad Frost, a key proponent for atomic design. The main idea in atomic design is to create thoughtful design systems, rather than creating simple collections of web pages.
The conference also stars Rachel Nabors, an award-winning cartoonist and an Invited Expert by the W3C on web animation. We will learn how to improve the user experience of our projects, leave a great impression on users, and bring delight to customers through various animation techniques.
PWDO, the organization itself, is a major community player that conducts regular meet-ups on design & development topics in schools and in different organizations. They are a non-profit organization. Joining the event supports the local design community that provides our company the manpower pool we would need in the future.
Most conferences in the Asian region cost $500-1000. This event will held here in Manila for less than $100. It’s the best deal we will get in the Asian region.
Joining the FFC6 conference allows us to learn the latest trends and see what others are doing in the market. We only get this kind of opportunity with such top-notch international speakers once in a lifetime. We should take advantage of it. If we order early, we can get the discounted early bird rate!
