5 Reasons to Go to Loupe This Year5 Reasons to Go to Loupe This Year

Loupe is back for its second year and we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. Here’s why you won’t want to miss it.

June 14, 2019

Loupe—our conference on interactive design and creative coding—made its debut in 2018. We heard from eight incredible speakers, met and mingled at three parties, and even took a cruise down the canals. Find out why this year is sure to be even better.

Relatable speakers with real-world experience

Our speaker lineup includes eight fantastic designers and developers, all doing exciting work and ready to share their expertise. Last year we learned about creating design systems, stress-testing designs in the real world, and the importance of playfulness in the design process. This year’s lineup features designers with a background in product design at Dropbox, Microsoft, and Instagram, inclusive design in Africa, LGBTQIA+ activism, and open-source education.

Hands-on workshops

We’ve amped up our workshops to give you the most useful and hands-on experience possible. We have a range of levels from beginner to advanced, so whether you’re just getting started or ready to incorporate more code into your workflow, there’s a workshop for you. For those of you collaborating with teams, be sure to attend our Framer X for Teams workshop, led by Addison Schultz and Aroa Gil Bo from Framer. Here’s why Aroa thinks you should attend:

“You’ll work together with leading designers and developers from the industry toward a common goal: Planing, ideating, designing and finally building a component that will be part of a wider design system.”

Making connections

One of our favorite things about Loupe 2018 was seeing so many people from the Framer community meet face-to-face. We hope you’ll take some time at our beautiful venue for a coffee on the waterfront with someone new—you might just meet your Framer mentor—or catch up with your internet friends in person.

All-inclusive tickets

This year, your ticket includes everything—talks, workshops, parties, and more. If you’re working on Framer projects or just have general questions, we’ll also have the Framer team on site to help you out one-on-one. And of course, it wouldn’t be Loupe without a few surprises… We can’t say much, but trust us when we say you won’t want to miss out.

Amsterdam in the summertime

With its winding canals, parks in every neighborhood, and average highs of 71°F, Amsterdam is the best place to be in August (we’re only a little biased). Check out our local’s guide to the city to find out how to order a koffie verkeerd, rent your own canal cruiser, and discover the city’s best craft breweries by bike.
