Ashleigh Axios was the creative director and digital strategist for the first-ever White House Office of Digital Strategy, bridging the two presidential terms of the Obama administration. Her presentation, “How Design Transformed the White House,” offers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how she (and her small team) successfully implemented an innovative design and digital strategy while up against limited government resources and impossible deadlines — all under intense public scrutiny. Loaded with insider secrets, tips, and tricks, this is sure to be a nostalgic look at an era that changed the digital landscape of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue forever.
Axios now leads The Studio, where she functions as an executive creative director for Automattic, a company with the mission to democratize publishing and commerce. She is an executive board member for AIGA, and an editorial board member for Design Observer. She is also the president emeritus of AIGA Washington D.C., where she formed DotGovDesign, an initiative and conference connecting and empowering government designers.
