Talk at the colloquium at BMCC

Last night I was invited to speak at the colloquium organized by the Multimedia Programming and Design program at the BMCC. Along with Eric Socolofsky, we talked to students about what we do in the industry. I showed them some of the projects I’ve done to give them a brief idea of what it’s like to for me to work in interactive. I focused on the web and interactive voice projects, contrasting my non-profit and commercial work. I also tried to give them an idea of how I strive to separate my client design work with my bookart, something that keeps my creative juices going.

We both showed an array of projects that have user-generated content, and we both think that it’s the next (or current, rather) big wave.

Eric, a game designer, showed a few great projects that he did. One of them is QuickComic, in which users can drag and drop comic objects into a 2×2 grids and type in dialogs. Users can not only send their comic strips to their friends, but also embed them into their sites with an EMBED code.
