Last night preParti participated in the NACE Tastes and Trends Competition and even though we didn't win, we still had a great time showing people our app. We were the only technology there and as people were setting up, I couldn't help but think.... Thank god our set ups are digital! Seriously, there was a lot of work that people put in for that one evening of flexing their skills and their design chops.
I mean for some of these set ups it took teams of people moving things in and adding little touches. Ours seemed so easy in comparison... I put a table cloth down, plugged in my lap top and let her rip!
On another note, the venue it was in, the Yaarab Shriner Center in Atlanta, was awesome. I've always wanted to go because they have roller derby games there (yes, for real!) and the outside of the building is so intriguing!
They also have this awesome fountain in a courtyard with a shriner at the top. You can't see it here but at least you get the idea.
In Other News...
We scanned the Frazer Center which is an amazing non-profit. They are a school that has programs for special needs kids. The gardens there are exquisite and we will be back in the spring to capture those, but in the meantime we got pics and scans of their Atrium which has huge windows that lets in a lot of light.
The team worked on the hero asset in the Atrium which is this beautiful mosaic made out of Murano glass.
Last but not least we are getting ready for our soft launch at the Georgia World Congress Center, so if you've been waiting for that iOS to drop... It's finally right around the corner!!!
