I mentioned a while ago that back in August I went to an amazing design conference in Cleveland called Weapons of Mass Creation. It was really inspiring, and now you can hear all the amazing speaker I got to hear that weekend from the comfort of your couch!
I’m going to be posting these talks periodically, or you can just go to the WMC Fest facebook page that I linked at the beginning of this post and watch them there.
This first talk is from Jen and Omar of These Are Things. If you do one thing today and one thing only, it should be to click that link and look at their adorable and amazingly crafted website. Jen and Omar specialize in modern map making, but they are also phenomenal illustrators and info graphic makers. Yes, what I am telling you is that these two make infographics FUN, so basically they are mad scientists/geniuses.
Their talk was probably one of my favorites of the weekend, they were completely captivating! Their talk was about how with every success comes fifty failures, even for the most successful designers. Definitely worth a listen to put your journey into perspective.
Have a great weekend everyone!
