This weekend I am not only attending, but also speaking at Word Camp Kansas City. Word Camp is a regionally hosted event for Wordpress (WP) users. The event kicked off last night (Friday, June 1) with a kick off party and hackathon. A hackathon basically is a collaborative group of designers, developers and publishers who work within a few hours to help re-design, develop and publish a website for a non-profit organization
As the world becomes more connected than ever, digital designers are faced with the task of designing content that can communicate their message to individuals around the world. Because cultures around the world interpret verbal expressions, images and colors differently, designing for a global audience can be very trying for a designer. In this session we will examined some of the different cultural design trends, problems and solutions in digital design, taking a close look at both web and video game design.
