Chloe Park of OpenTable shared a fascinating behind-the-scenes tour of her approach to tackling “un-shiny problems.” Her story was complemented by a stunning, hand-crafted presentation.
Amy Hood and Jennifer Hood shared their thoughts on the role of context in design, injected with personality and humor.
Sam Kallis, visual development artist at Paramount Pictures, is one of my new creative role models. I was inspired by her authenticity, philosophy, and courage. And her work is simply amazing!
Merek Davis of Mextures - helluva beard.
Also - some old-fashioned sketches to grace the Catamaran Resort notepads. These feature Keiran Flanigan, Jennet Liaw, Chuck Longanecker, and Hudson Peralta.
It was lovely meeting so many talented designers and makers. Onward!
