Compostmodern in San Francisco in Two Weeks!
January 10, 2011
I'm officially "conferenced-out," allergic to a lot of the superfluous jargon and business cards that many design conferences are plagued by: the "lots of talk and no action." However, one conference I've attended twice now that seems to transcend that stigma is Compostmodern, a small-ish (by comparison) sustainable design event in San Francisco that is expertly curated focused on what we can take beyond the conference walls. So much so, in fact, that this year, they're hosting a Day 2 "Unconference" of break-out work sessions and active engagement to "convert great thinking and passion into action." The first day includes speakers Bruce Mao, Yves Behar, and more, in a high-profile roster of movers and shakers in design. Compostmodern is also a wonderful arena for talking about what "sustainable" means in the first place, going beyond going green and talking about the social elements of design. This year, Compostmodern will take place on January 22 and 23, produced by the San Francisco chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Artists (AIGA). If you haven't already, check out the website and consider registering. You won't be disappointed.
