In 2011 I spent time designing and art directing graphics for a series of lectures put on by the University of Phoenix. The jobs were a fun departure from the typical design and illustration as advertising, as they were using design and technology to express ideas for academics.
The Consequences of Being Digital with Nick Negroponte
In 2011 I was asked to help art direct this video/lecture with Nicholas Negroponte, co founder of the MIT Media Lab and WIRED magazine.
It was a big task. The lecture was about media and culture as the world becomes more and more digital. It ran 70 minutes long. For the presentation, Nicholas was digitally projected as a hologram (a la Tupac) which we then added digital effects and graphics to illustrate various points from the speech.
