In a under a week I'll be in Sydney for the annual Semi-Permanent creative conference, held at Carriageworks in Eveleigh--a nice artsy change of venue. I have my ticket and I'm set to inject some inspiration in these lifeless veins.
It is my duty to go every year and with each and every passing year I gain more knowledge and possess the burning desire to create pretty things. The hardest part is knowing where to start, I get so overwhelmed by the huge list of things that I'd love to do....but then I worry about getting it all wrong. Why are designers so scared of making mistakes? It's because we see it as SELF-FAILURE. Don't worry, everyone has this phobia but the real challenge is accepting:
I'm very excited to be seeing the following speakers at this conference, especially the wonderful, Tara McPherson...eeek! Seeing her on the schedule sold me, straight away. I'd love to have the opportunity to chat with her about her work.
Kelly has spoken at one of the previous conferences, but she is just so darn cute with her NZ accent and gorgeous locks. Who wouldn't want to see her again? Just come along, even if it's just to see some epic facial hair. Skateboarding legends. In the flesh, try and kick-turn that.
Sydney-siders, creative souls and creative intrigued, I recommend taking a dive and attending the conference. It is a three day conference, so you have the option of going for the long haul or even trooping through the one.
