We are attending Semi-Permanent 2012! As a company, TWS understands the importance of our web design team to stay inspired and keep up-to-date with trends. As it is the nature of the industry to change and evolve, it is important for our Website Designers to evolve and learn with it. The creators of the event reveal that it was born from a wish to bring together the world's design communities.
According to the Semi-Permanent website, “Semi-Permanent is a world leading design conference that to date has hosted 29 events in 9 cities, covering 5 countries, with over 200 speakers and 50,000 attendees. In 2012, Semi-Permanent celebrates ten years of events – that's a decade full of stories and wisdom from industry idols.”
The 2012 conference, hosts speakers from many different genres in the design industry, including not only web design but also graphic design, film, fine art, illustration, interaction design, typography, photography, visual effects, animation, graffiti, motion graphics and more. As a designer it is easy to find inspiration everywhere, especially in other creative fields.
As a third-time attendee of Semi-Permanent, I love the conference because it is a real world glance into the challenges and solutions that most people in the creative industry share. It gives its attendees new tools and ideas for solving creative problems.
What makes Semi-Permanent unique to other big conferences is that it is also a forum: throughout the event, Semi-Permanent’s social media platforms of Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Instagram enables its attendees to converse and share ideas with the wide world of design.
This is also the first year that Semi-Permanent has teamed up with Google to host a Google+ Hangout Session, with Roman Coppola & Friends being webcast directly from the United States. Semi-Permanent has said, “Hangout is a new webcast system that Google has set up as part of its Google+ network. It’s an exciting new technology that allows for multiple video chats with up to 10 users.” The ways in which we communicate change and grow, Semi-Permanent has advanced with this, bringing together creative minds from across the globe.
