I came to the Denver Egotist with the idea of ONCE in the Winter of 2011. The idea was to get creative people together to discuss topics and celebrate creativity. The catch is we focus on tapping into the mind of a certain individual(s) and a select group of invited guests is allowed to drill away with discussions and opinions on the subject in a "gloves off" mentality.
For this project, I created the logo with my graphic designer at Amélie Company and I find the locations as well as moderate each event. I create the invites, the slides for the presentation part and alongside the Denver Egotist, find the right speakers and the first round of guests. The guests were each given an invite to pass on to the next set of guests so that part is totally viral.
