Smile, you're at SXSW!
After months of brainstorming, planning and endless logistics, SXSW is finally here! As Starr highlighted last night, our clients have a lot going on down here – make sure to check them out – but we’ve also got something pretty darn cool cooking up ourselves. For the second year, INK is sponsoring the speaker-ready room at the Austin Convention Center where THREE THOUSAND SPEAKERS will filter through over the next five days. We turned some heads in 2011 with our thINK yarn bombing exhibit and the fan-favorite bouncy balls, so we had to come out big to top that. This year for a little added speaker fun, INK teamed with Smilebooth, a little company out of Houston turning heads across the country for its innovative approach to photo booths. For the sensational backdrop and hilarious props (“Call me Big Data” is my fave), we turned to my favorite blogger and crafting genius Leslie Blevins of FeltandHoney.com. Everything came together beautifully and here we are, about to welcome our first speakers. Up first, an all-INK picture. You can see more where this came from by following the hashtag #speaksxsw.
Friends and enemies do not fret, we also have another round of speaker tips cards this year. If you’re going for BOLD and maybe a little kookie, these tips are a SXSW must-have (kudos to the clever and random @jessicanwarren).
Have fun at SXSW, people! Be bold, be social, be just a little bit weird – because remember, you’re in Austin! Enjoy!
