Wish for a bigger canvas and see what happens! Working big isn't new but a couple of recent projects turned out especially well.
Social Enterprise Conference
The first was for the Social Enterprise Conference organized by the students of the Harvard Business School and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. This was my second trip to the conference and I was excited to return. The students organize a fantastic conference with great speakers and lots of interesting workshops.
My role this year was to scan the output of the various sessions, panel discussions and workshops, pick out the highlights and turn them into a groovy visual.
My main source for content was the conference participant's Twitter traffic. Tweet and reTweet told me what ideas people cared about most. My other source of info, fabulous teammates Sita Magnuson, Kelvy Bird and Jodi Engelberg. Together we represented The Value Web as process designers, facilitators and graphic facilitators.
After some quality time with photoshop my finished wall is polished and shiny which equals legible and spell-checked. It's even found a fab spot on the SECON facebook page. So groovy!
Once the walls were arrange in the booth area I felt like they wanted a large and colorful image to catch the eye from a distance and invite participants to find out what was going on with all the art. The mosaic did all those things.
