(mt) Media Temple & The Noun Project Austin Iconathon
Monday, March 11, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Join fellow creatives in a fun 2-hour Iconathon design workshop about Ideas and Inspiration. What does it feel like when you get that moment of inspiration? How would you visually communicate that feeling in a simple pictogram?
Media Temple has been an essential partner of The Noun Project ever since we launched. We are thrilled to partner with them to build a new visual language around inspiration and creativity. For more than 15 years, (mt) Media Temple has been helping people bring their big ideas to life. In that time they’ve witnessed a lot of light-bulb-over-the-head, “a-ha!” moments. Together we're fascinated by the challenge of illustrating that moment and that feeling, and creating a visual vocabulary for the language of ideas.
The Noun Project organizes Iconathons to engage the public in the design process, so no design or art skills are necessary - all are welcome to participate! SXSW tickets not required. Free inspirational juice (aka beer) will be provided.
The symbols created during this workshop will be added to The Noun Project as public domain for anyone to use.
