Thanks Congressman Frank for bringin' it home: that quote is a keeper and I couldn’t agree more. And thanks for speaking at a graphic design conference: yes, government does have a place at the table in the design community, and vice versa.
My blog manifesto articulates that I don’t blog about my professional life. But I’m throwing that out the window right now. I’m at the AIGA Design Conference in Boston. Feeling inspired, stimulated, amused, and in awe. And, without naming names, a little underwhelmed, too. You name the design luminary, they’re here.DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid spoke this morning: love him. If you don’t know his work (he’s also known as Paul D. Miller), check out that linky link with his name. He showed this amazing cool video. I love the convergence of music + poetry + video + art + hip hop + imagery + power + old school + new school way of design. I missed him this last week in Portland as part of the TBA Festival. He also threw out a new term I hadn’t heard before, as something he identifies as: gangsta nerd. That so kicks ass.
Here’s a picture of the stage set up: pretty cool multi-level thing with musicians and an artist above, performing during the keynotes….
Now that my luggage has arrived, 24 hours after I did, I’ll be able to do my hair, wear deoderant and clean clothes tomorrow: what a nice thing to look forward to!
