Saturday Night in Memphis

Finally getting around to posting the last of my pictures from the AIGA Make|Think 2009 conference:

Our little conference was kind of a big deal in Memphis—as you can tell from the banner stretched across Beale Street.

It has come to my attention via the terrible quality of these photos that I need a new camera. Out of 7 photos these were the only redeemable shots. 😦

Thanks for stopping by!

AIGA 2009 Make/Think Day 1

Arrived in Memphis yesterday, and had time to wander since the Make/Think conference didn’t start until today. Walked down Main Street toward Beale. I’ll be making use of the trolley.

The view down Main Street. The trolley is passing by the red brick Cannon Center for the Arts, and the Memphis Cook Conference Center just beyond it.

The conference is taking place at the Memphis Cook Conference Center.

The place is subtly decorated for the conference. The Make/Think conference identity was created by Michael Githrie and Bret Terwilleger from Oden, Brad Wilkerson from 68 Comeback, Trace Hallowell and Ben Johnson from Tactical Magic, and Amy Sharp from CS2 Advertising.

Registration opened at 8 am, but the expo doesn’t open until 11. Not a problem because I’ve taken the opportunity to post these snaps, and wander a few displays.

Awesome swag bag and goodies!

Thanks for stopping by!
