Re:Make 2014 | The Maker (R)Evolution
There are so many things I love about the San Francisco Bay Area. The weather, the melting pot culture and the suede looking mountains are probably some of my favorites, but I also have to admit that it’s pretty cool to live in one of the places most passionate about the web, technology and social media, mostly because I’m passionate about it too. Not to mention, there are lots of conferences and events related to technology and the internet, which is always fun!
Just a year ago I remember hearing about the conference Re:Make by Brit+Co. It was our first month in California and I was so busy with the move that I didn’t have the time to check it out. Then I saw the pictures of the event and I was so jealous, they looked amazing. This year I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to go, and lucky me, the event was just an hour drive from home, it was just perfect.
The conference was really great, a lot of the speakers were people who I greatly admire. I was especially interested in Joy Cho’s adventure with her new party line with Target. Also amazing and inspirational was Jaime Derringer, founder and executive editor of Design Milk, Shauna Mei, founder of AHAlife, Julia Hartz, co-founder of Eventbrite and the cheerful and unique Kandee Johnson, YouTube beauty expert.
Here are some of my favorite things from the conference, aside from good talks and being able to meet interesting people, the decorations were amazing. Not to mention that I even had the opportunity to make a customized vase and decorate some cupcakes!
