This November 15th, our good friend James White from Signalnoise will be heading to Portland, Oregon for a speaking event, presented by Spaceman Design and AIGA Portland. Everything took place when James started his Gum Cards Initiative and Portland based designer Dave Hardy pledged on the fundraising as the Diamond Package. One of the prizes of the pledge was that James will be going to wherever your city and make a Design Renegade Talk. Portland was the winner! All Rights to Dave Hardy About the Event In order to reach our goals in the upside-down world of graphic design, you need to be a rogue. A misfit. A renegade. James White from the Signalnoise Studio has based his career on doing things outside of the ordinary, turning his back on boardrooms and creative briefs in order to chase his design dreams with vengeance and rock n’ roll. He will be telling his story while discussing personal projects built from love and ambition in his small home office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. These led to him working with respected people all over the world, from his favourite metal band to film juggernaut Kevin Smith. James will talk about chasing your creative path, building your personal body of work, the value of supporting friends, and never forgetting the artist inside. Being “different” isn’t enough anymore. You need to be a renegade! For more information about Dave Hardy and AIGA Portland, you can visit their websites at SpaceManDesign.com and AIGA Portland at AigaPortland.org.

This year I will finally have the opportunity to go to the TRImarchiDG, probably the biggest graphic design event of Latin America. It will take place in Mar del Plata, Argentina from the 19th to the 21st of October. The latin american graphic design has finally found its meeting point. Year by year it has been taking shape into what today is known as the biggest design meeting of Latin America. We're talking about the sixth edition of TRImarchiDG. With humble beginnings, its first year gathered 400 people in an auditorium facing the ocean. Today we're waiting for more than 5000 people from all over Argentina, many american countries and even Europe. They will all get together from the 19th to the 21st of october in the Stadium Polideportivo of Mar del Plata, a city located 400kms south of Buenos Aires. I look forward to seeing some very good designers such as the guys from Büro Destruct, No Domain, Superstudio, Design-Tourist and many more. The complete list of speakers and all information about the event can be found at http://www.trimarchidg.net/ Anyway, if anyone is heading to TRImarchiDG and wants to meet up let me know. Also I would appreciate if anyone who's been there, has tips on things to do, places to go or anything else.
