Art, Emotion, & Autism

@ VOL 32 ON DEC 06, 2017

The Beauty of Type and Ligatures

@ VOL 32 ON DEC 06, 2017

His passion for digital type, elegant ligatures, and creating effective publications led John Lyttle to taking a step back down a different path.  For a change, he had a chance to take more control over the type he loves and produce it by hand.  This change of pace offered this presenter a whole new flavor of reward.

Gotham E.R.

@ VOL 32 ON DEC 06, 2017

L.M. Bryski did not grow up wanting to be in medicine, working in the emergency room, or wanting to be an award-winning author (which she is).  No, Bryski grew up wanting to be BATMAN!  She wanted to be the superhero that swooped in and saved the day and found that in Emergency Medicine.  Where the ER is her Gotham, her lab coat her cape, and her stethoscope her super hearing, she's here to save the day.  No bat signal required.

Professional Gaming

@ VOL 32 ON DEC 06, 2017

From the age of 16 this presenter knew he wanted to be a professional gamer.  Just don't tell his Dad.  From gamers who stream for entertainment to those who compete for big prizes, Roman Teplouhov has found his passion.

Can't Tell Brown from Green

@ VOL 32 ON DEC 06, 2017

Winnipeg's fabulous MC took a break from introducing their presentations to being one himself.  Carson Samson stood in the spotlight and explained to a stunned crowd that this fabulous designer, illustrator, and comically inclined human has red-green color blindness.  He discussed the ways he gets around creating palettes and to his joy that copic created a fool-proof method for him to create.  There's always a way.

Handcraft Creative

@ VOL 32 ON DEC 06, 2017

Raymond Friesen says he doesn't know anything about making a documentary, but this presentation definitely says otherwise.  From the director and co-founder of Handcraft Creative comes the name dropping, industrial film for commercial purposes with a documentary style twist.
