The Story of How I Lived Vicariously Through My Poster at Vidcon 2013
Earlier this year I was planning on attending Vidcon this year, at least in the hopey, calculating how much money that would cost sort of way. Unfortunately that fell through.
Last year I submitted this design to the This Star Won’t Go Out (TSWGO) t-shirt contest. I didn’t win, but a few weeks later I received an email that they still really liked my design and might want to use it in the future. I was obviously thrilled and sent them hi-res files, and asked them to let me know when/if they used it.
Fast Forward to last week. To my great surprise I noticed some pictures in my newsfeed from TSWGO, but these weren’t just any pictures, they had my poster in them!
First I was really surprised, because in the bustle and hustle of getting ready for Vidcon they forgot to notify me (not a big issue, and all sorted out now), but mostly I was really excited. Even though I didn’t get to go to Vidcon, here were pictures of my poster next to some of my favourite people, like Wheezy Waiter and John Green!!
But it gets even better! My friend James did make it to Vidcon, and due to his phone not receiving MMS’s I did not manage to properly communicate my discovery to him. The next day he told me to check his profile picture and what do I see but MY POSTER DESIGN next to him, Ze Frank, and Lauren Fairweather! Apparently my poster was at several of the signing tables as well as the TSWGO booth.
If anyone else has pictures of awesome YouTube peeps with my design in them I’d love to see them!
I also saw this awesome video of Esther Day/Vidcon where my design makes a few appearances.
It’s a great note to start my Graphic Design degree off in September 🙂
Note: All the Photos are from the TSWGO Facebook page, besides the one of Ze Frank (and James and Lauren, I bet you can figure out whose who) and the full poster design.
Crazy coincidence that today I read about people cutting and donating their hair in preparation for TFIOS filming, when I totally did the same thing this weekend!
This is at least the third time I’ve grown out my hair with the purpose of cutting it short and donating it for wigs for women battling cancer.
This time my hair wasn’t as long (though it was over 2 years of growth) so I donated 8” inches (some was a bit longer) to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths Program. For fellow Canadians you can also check out this really list of hair donation programs in Canada and hair preparation info put together by the Canadian Cancer Society.
I hope more people do this! Having a really short hair cut all the sudden ensures all your friends will notice it, maximizing attention AND doing good.
There’s only a few days to vote cause it was submitted kind of late, but I would really appreciate if if you checked it out 🙂
