Editor's Note: This post was orginally published on the Huffington Post blog by Crystal Theresa Ejanda and Patrick Daniel. The blog recaps their experience during Future of Web Design San Francisco this past October 2015. 

"It doesn't matter how amazing the steak is, if it's served on a cold plate, it's crap. If it's served with a dull knife, it's crap. If the gravy isn't piping hot, it's crap. If you're eating it on an uncomfortable chair, it's crap. If it's served by an ugly waiter who just came in from a cigarette break, it's crap. Because I care about the steak, I have to care about everything around it."

#FacesOfTheFuture and You!


The web design and development industry is a great community to be a part of. It’s an industry made up entirely of creative, driven, open-minded individuals striving to continually better themselves and one another.

We are all working in an industry focused on shaping the future. We decide what to build and create to mold the future of the industry and push the web forward. We attend meetups and community events, conferences and classes, all with the same sense of responsibility and purpose in knowing we are the faces of the future pushing the web forward to do awesome things.

As individual leaders and go-getters in the industry, we each set an example to each other of what is possible and how we can all join in shaping the future of the web together.

Our #FacesOfTheFuture Campaign features the true stars shaping the industry – you! If you or someone you know deserves to be featured for his/her hard work and efforts in the web and tech industry, tweet us @Future_Insights with #FacesOfTheFuture or email us to share your story!
