When: Saturday, September 6, 2008, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm
Where: Newmark Theatre at Portland Center for the Performing Arts
What It’s About: Creative process, through and through. The Portland Creative Conference was filled with notable creatives from different disciplines sharing the secret to answer one universal and elusive question: how could one better her creative process to generate better ideas?
The notes, sadly, will not include On Your Feet, who probably had the most interactive, brain-stretching presentation in the conference, because their presentation was not a lecture to begin with.
This week, I will be posting notes from each speaker everyday:
- Michael Curry, Michael Curry Design
- Damali Ayo, CROW clothing Due tomorrow.
- Brian Van’t Hul, Laika
- Jelly Helm, Wieden+Kennedy
- Jen Modarelli, White Horse
- Jay Meschter, Nike Flywire
- Adam Gallardo, Dark Horse Comics
Translation: Opening a laptop and liveTweeting the event actually brought risk of people thinking that you’re a geek.
Interestingness: ☝ ☝ ☝ ☝ ½
Translation: If you’re looking for inspirations and exercises for your right brain, you’re in the right place. There is no secret to creativity, though. Only hard work could make it happen.
