Designer Con 2012

I attended Designer Con, the annual art & design convention, in Pasadena recently alongside my friend who runs his own label, Chickenfarm. The convention gives smaller, mostly independent designers a chance to promote themselves. Needless to say, there were a lot of very interesting, creative people in that building that day.

Below are some of my favorite photos from the event. Check out all my photos from the event at my flickr page.

The Skullastic booth was one of my favorites. It’s a great, high-quality spoof on the Scholastic product line. I picked up the Planner Of The Apes.
