ISO50 SF Talk // Ticket Giveaway

Posted by ISO50

I’ll be giving a talk at the Academy of Art in San Francisco this Thursday evening, March 18th. I’m going to be covering a lot of ground — the talk is 2 hours — mostly talking about background, inspiration and process along with a question and answer period. The talk is limited to students (AAU students get in with ID) but the Academy has given us 20 additional seats to give away on the blog. If you’re interested in going just comment on this post and be sure to leave a valid email in the “email” field (email will not be published). We will then contact you with full details for the talk and get you put on the list.

Please only enter if you intend to go, spots are limited. Also, if you’re reading this and there are already 20 comments below, don’t give up! You’ll be put down as an alternate for people who end up not being able to make it (in our experience a lot of people either drop out or are unreachable via the email they provided.)

Good luck! Hope to see you Thursday.

craig: as an AAU grad, you’re eligible to come to the event. bring your old student ID or other “proof”.

I really hope 19 people before me decide they can’t go because I really want to go. I was actually going to the city this thursday for an AIGA event anyways. So if I get on the list for this I will go here instead. Hope I get one.

I saw you when you gave a talk in sac for ADAC. Picked up two of your posters then. You’ve changed a lot since then and I’d love to see how your talks have changed too. Cheers!

Wow! I don’t remember any speakers as cool as this coming to AAU when I studied there. Is there any way you could post your talking points, Scott? I’m not in the area anymore, but would love to hear what you have to say about your inspiration, process, etc.

Hi I attend AAU and was wondering when and where IE the time and what building/room? I would love to be there sorry I guess our school isn’t the best at spreading the word as in I didn’t even hear about this. Good thing I read your blog. I will definitely pass this info around to other students. Thanks for coming down.

Hi all: We’re super-excited to host Scott this Thursday as part of the Graphic Design department’s “79DesignSpeak” — our own mini design lecture series, now in it’s 2nd season. As many of you might know, Alex is one of our Graphic Design graduate students at the Academy — hopefully, he’ll take the mic Thursday for a minute and let you know how he got hooked into the ISO50-world. Presently, the series is targeted to a Graphic Design audience and not pimped school-wide. But if you’ve been on our floor, you’ve seen the posters.

To answer a few questions: (1) The event is a “closed” one — meaning, it’s not a public event and is open to current students, faculty and alums. (2) The building (79 New Montgomery) is secure (guards, etc.) and only folks with an Academy ID or who’s name is on the guest list will be allowed to come into the building, (3) The event will be recorded, but for internal purposes (i.e.: for online GD students) and that recording will not be available publicly. (4) Former students are “alums” — meaning, with proof, you could get into the lecture, but you’ll not be able to bring your extended “family” with you. Sorry.

Alex and I thought up the idea of “guest seating” via this reply feature as a way to let Scott’s fans (specifically those quick on the trigger) in to see Scott in person. The only thing we ask is that you think of it as what it is: being a guest in someone’s space. We’re thrilled to host Scott’s fans and hope you’ll have a great time while you’re here. Hopefully, it’s also incentive to load this blog into your RSS feed or otherwise check it out every 32.6 minutes.

Please do be respectful if you’re planning to record or photograph during the event… ideally, we’d ask that you not do that (yes, really), but think of a wedding you’ve been to where the photographer was always up in everyone’s stuff… not a fun wedding, huh? Don’t make this like that. Help us make it an enjoyable, relaxing evening full of great design and cool music.

Also, make sure to check out Scott’s work in the 79NM gallery which will be up for two weeks. Hopefully, Alex will put a post up about that soon, but there’s a number of high-quality oversized prints hanging there for your optical enjoyment — there’s some great sculpture, too… The Gallery is open to everyone during normal business hours, so check it out.

Over and out,

Hunter Wimmer
Assc. Director // Graphic Design
