Bram Pitoyo, Portland Creative/Tech Event Review

Cre8Con: An Event Review (Part 1 of 8)

Cre8Con: The Portland Creative Conference

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:

  1. Michael Curry, Michael Curry Design
  2. Damali Ayo, CROW clothing Due tomorrow.
  3. Brian Van’t Hul, Laika
  4. Jelly Helm, Wieden+Kennedy
  5. Jen Modarelli, White Horse
  6. Jay Meschter, Nike Flywire
  7. Adam Gallardo, Dark Horse Comics

Technicality:
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.
