After the great experience working with the PodCamp London team, and knocking it out of the park, I thought I’d see if I could hit two for two with PodCamp Toronto and have as much fun. PodCamp Toronto is the premier social & new media event in Toronto, maybe even all of Canada, but they’ve always faltered on the visual composition of the event. The logo was rough, no real central website, and heavily relying on a wiki to keep it all together.
That’s where I come in.
I updated their branding, and designed a new website to be a single point of reference, moving completely away from the wiki model used previously. I didn’t do it alone however; Tommy Vallier & Bill Deys helped on the back end, pulling data from third party sites like Guestlist and Speaker Rate allowing us to use those services yet maintain the information on our own site. Daniele Rossi & Mircea Baldean helped keep things moving smoothly on the administrative end and managed the transition over to a single host and domain. They also provided a good sounding board for ideas I pitched at the committee before they were pitched.
The big event happens this month on the 20th and 21st at Ryerson’s Communications Centre. 600 plus have already signed up and 30 plus sessions lined up, so make sure to get your name in today!
