In an attempt to completely fill up your diaries next week, there’s one event running all over the capital you cannot miss.
London Digital Week is a weeklong festival of [mostly free] events, awards, and exhibitions. So if you want to help your clients use technology [NOT be used by it], you should be getting involved with LDW!
Anyway, some things not to miss:
Protein Forum have some very special speakers coming down – filmmaker, director, game designer Lance Weiler, and David Bausola of Purefold [an open media franchise developed in partnership by Ridley and Tony Scott].
PLAYGROUP @ SHOREDITCH HOUSE
Come and join Playgroup over breakfast [9.30am start] at Shoreditch House on the 24th September, to discover how to engage generation Y in a conversation with your brand. They’ll be looking at how social media can be used to engage the youth market, and why ‘play’ is integral to all of this.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your free place.
A crash course from Contagious Magazine. “Of all the thousands of words that have been written about changes in branding since the inception of the Internet, the only ones that are actually true are these: now, you have to give something back.”
FROM ART TO AD
There is a current trend emerging for existing art to be re-used or used as inspiration in advertising. This has been encouraged by social networking and sites such as YouTube. The event will look at how this emerging trend leaves artists’ work open to those in advertising, who sometimes use sources such as YouTube for inspiration to communicate a commercial message.
