The names and faces here are the ones you’ve seen at the candy collective, sweet talk, secret wars and various other creative social events. So, yes, they are old hands at talks by this stage but.. having been behind the scenes of conventions & conferences myself I Can tell you that they are a whole other ballgame entirely. The boys have not done it again. They have done it For the first time.
They not only filled the days with quality speakers but filled the nights with socials and energy.
It wasn’t all perfect, there are some tweaks I would suggest, for example; listing the names of speakers on the panel sessions in room two so you would know who was on them. However given the stellar nature of the speakers and the constant flow of talks and micro films I can merely nitpick!
It was a good opportunity to not only see the long standing talents of Sir Peter Blake, Dave mcKean and Chipp kidd but of seeing new kids on the block such as Brian Coldridge. There were also people who’s names I had heard in passing but not experienced – The Mill and The London Police.
The London Police. What a pair of tasty minded nuts. Loved their talk – combining in films, slide shows, interactive screens, graffiti tecniques and doggie folk songs. Can’t go wrong with that 😉
