Now that FITC (Flash in the Can) is over for an other year, I have some time to put up some photos and comments about the event. The overall feeling I have is WOW. I have been overwhelmed with amazing design, new technology and the stories told by great designers from around the globe.
Some good sessions to check out on the FITC site:
Back to the Future with James White
United Visual Artists with Ben Kreukniet
North Kingdom: An Inside View
ISO50: Blending Analogue and Digital with Scott Hansen
Terraforming Narrative with Alex McDowell
The Grammar of Interaction Design with Brendan Dawes
Welcome to the Sideshow with Mario Klingemann
Eyes Can Hear, 5 Ways with Jared Ficklin
It Has To Be This with John Underkoffler
As a designer, I tried to see as many creative sessions as possible. These all give you the feeling that you are involved in one of the most exciting and innovative industries available. With new programs, and the programmers making numbers work in ways never believed possible, I could see the future of communication and art in the digital world. I have new hope for the future of our industry, and see its not just about Facebook and Twitter, and this feeling seems like it is across the board. I hate Facebook and Twitter, hack ways for non-creatives to feel important.
More to come…
