The variety of speakers was fantastic, everything from fashion photography to data visualization and one of the presenters even creates Rube Goldberg machines for a living! It truly was a fascinating and inspiring day. Below are some of my highlights from the conference.
The conference kicked off with a keynote by the legendary original madman George Lois, who created the "I want my MTV" ad campaign, along with a billion other high profile projects. He is a feisty one, for sure! The amount of expletives that flew out of that man's mouth was incredible. I purchased his new book, Damn Good Advice (for people with talent!). It looks like it will be a good read.
Joseph Herscher is a kinetic artist who makes complicated and comical inventions, it's amazing that he has made a career for himself from such a unique passion and skill. Check out this wonderful video of his work.
A photo from Austin Kleon's talk, he is a writer, artist and the author of Blackout Poetry as well as a new book entitled, Steal Like An Artist.
All in all, an invigorating day that left me with a lot to think about. I can't wait for next year!
