Thank you Cause+Affect!

Last week I spoke at Pecha Kucha Vancouver Vol 6 and the 500+ seats in the theatre were all spoken for, the place was PACKED! This week I’ve been getting email after email from people who attended the event and I owe all these connections to Cause+Affect. They are the design studio that has been hosting Pecha Kucha here in Vancouver, and I was honored when they asked me to speak.

This is a little promo video (made by the good folks at Salazar) which shows what Cause+Affect are about and near the end there’s a bit of footage of Pecha Kucha. There is a video of my presentation coming and I’ll post it up as soon as it’s available.

Steven and Jane – thank you so much for the opportunity to speak I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Thank you to all of you who made it out on Thursday and those of you who couldn’t make it but supported me in spirit! I felt it!!

Brian Tong

Brian Tong created this totally impractical lunch kit out of a huge log, for his grad show. The spot for the silver chopsticks is a nice touch and I like that fact that there is even a spot for a napkin.

Blank Canvas!

Students at Ravensbourne College of Design in London have come up with an ingenious way to raise funds for their grad show, a project called Blank Canvas! Packages containing objects purchased in thrift shops were sent out to many of the students’ favourite designers and illustrators to act as blank canvases. The objects were customized by the recipients and sent back, and now the students are having an auction of the work on April 30th at the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane.

Not that impressed? Let me just rattle off a few of the 50+ artists/designers involved: Milton Glaser! Hellovon! Non-Format! Parra! Job Wouters! Andy J Miller! Julien Vallee! Alex Ostrowski! Stina Persson!

Head over to the Blank Canvas page to get on the guestlist if you want to attend the auction!
