Today we went to Inspiration Fest here in Buenos Aires. It is an event that promotes many different directions within the creative industry. During the day we have experienced conferences, installations, workshops and music.
We listened to Lalo Zanoni from Tercerklick, a social media agency, on new techniques in social media and Leonardo Eyer from Bold Design in Brasil. I realized how spoiled we where with insightful inspiring lectures at Hyper Island and it is definitely a good way to catch up on the latest news in the industry, meet people and get inspired.
During the design lecture I feel like I got a glance of what the world might look like through the eyes of a designer, they probably see things different than I do. If a designer and I are thinking about the same problem the solution for me is in the form of a strategy and a concept, for a designer it might be more visual. We can still share the same idea.
Fia and Nacho made beautiful drawings on the stage where the dj:s performed.
The event took place in a bueautiful industrial concrete building covered in grafitti called Konex. It is used for both events and conferences like this one, a couple of weeks ago I went here on a seminar on the digital development in South America, as well as concerts and clubs.
Our first week at Castro and the first week of the production phase of Fly Garage is almost over. I loved working with idea generation at the garage but it is nice to change environment and tasks sometimes. The office of Castro is awesome and all the guys working here are really nice. We feel very welcomed and the castrastians are fun and inspiring to work with! We learn a lot about strategy, production and technology.
Some pictures from the office! Thanks Fia for the montage.
