2nd Day Series Meetup for March: Miscellaneous Grab-Bag

Well everyone, SXSW took a lot more out of me than I expected... so I messed up on getting the word out to everyone (by only drafting this event, without making it official) but we are in fact meeting tomorrow afternoon for lunch.

 

Please note we'll be meeting at a different location, at Cafe Express on North Lamar, just south of 38th Street. Fortunately, not too far from where we have been at Genuine Joe. They have an HDTV for us to use and a much nicer menu for having lunch.

 

The theme for tomorrow's discussion will be a "Grab-Bag" of different stuff. I encourage everyone to bring up any topics they'd like to discuss or show online through the big screen. But I've got a few that I'm bringing to the table myself, to wit:

 

1. Icon design: Now more important than ever thanks to mobile devices, why is it so many of them don't look any good, or even worse, don't actually help you find the app easily?

2. Internet memes: Everyone treats memes like jokes, which for the most part they are, but what about the design aspect of them? I've been working on a t-shirt that combines two, using well-known fonts, which makes things even more interesting. And what about trademark and copyright issues?

3. Has anyone seen the Kinetic Typography videos of Jonathan Coulton songs? Check these out: jonathan coulton songs kinetic typography videos

See you guys on Wednesday!
