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!

Thanks Kirstyn! It's been amazing so far. So much info, and some great presentations. Most notably, Stephan Sagmeister is one month back from his 2nd 1-year sabbatical, and he had a good sized section of the general session this evening...great stuf!
