Is it coming up this quickly? A mere two weeks from today? According to the calendar, yes, it’s fourteen days from the start of the AIGA Pivot Conference in Phoenix. The last one of these (Memphis of 2009) featured Nate and I speaking for a solid minute on the main stage. We also managed to get in a recap on The Reflex Blue Show.
This year we’re representing a bit more behind the scenes. It will just be me, but expect daily recaps on the podcast. And if you want your recaps in written format, or in addition to the audio, I will be blogging (just not here). Follow me over at the Neenah Paper Blog, actually starting today, where I mention that I will be the official Neenah Paper blogger for the Pivot Conference (filling in for Matthew Porter). Hope to see you all in Phoenix.
It was on this day, some 37 years back, that I was born during the halftime of a Nebraska/Wisconsin football game. It was on this day this year, actually just this day then I guess, that I answer questions from Tony on Illustrate Omaha’s Designer Spotlight.
This week’s show — new and recorded live while the microphones were on — is an operatic examination of Things. We spend a slight amount of time recapping our recappings of HOWlive twenty-eleven (presumably for the final time); the finer points of local AIGA awards shows; a magical pen that records your drawings and turns them into more drawings; finally begin to delve into Adobe Creative Suite Five Period Five (a conversation will continue, dear friends, as we endeavor to uncover its dark, dark secrets); and do a little, tiny bit of dribbbling. Maybe more?
