SXSW Interactive taps design guru swissmiss for keynote speech

Design innovator and curator swissmiss – every-day-named Tina Roth Eisenberg, no relation to the cocoa powder stuff – will keynote an address at the 2013 South by Southwest Interactive Festival in March.
Eisenberg is the founder of CreativeMornings, a monthly breakfast collective where design professionals and other creatives meet to swap ideas and deliver lectures. Eisenberg started CreativeMornings in New York in 2009; chapters now exist in more than 30 cities as far-flung as Auckland, Bogotá, and Detroit.
That’s but one of Eisenberg’s many projects cooking – that “Hustle” tat is her design, by the way, and she appears to have taken her own advice to heart. Eisenberg also runs the popular design blog swissmiss (the name is in homage to her native Switzerland); free to-do app TeuxDeux, a collaboration with Fictive Kin; and temporary tattoo design shop and store Tattly.
Eisenberg is the last announced keynote speaker, joining other movers & shakers from online and tech Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), Julie Uhrman (OUYA), Elon Musk (SpaceX), and MakerBot’s Bre Pettis, who’ll deliver opening remarks at the 2013 fest, which runs March 8-12.
