Shapeshifters is a series of lectures on graphic design. The 2012 edition was about designing information. Speakers were Brendan Dawes, Mark Porter, Andrew Vande Moere, Morag Myerscough, Joost Grootens and Tim Fendley.
I designed the opening visual for these lectures. When the crowd slowly enters the room, they become immersed in an audiovisual experience. The bright blue and yellow circles slowly transform into organic shapes, showing the names of the speakers of that night.
I made an application that can be configured to show the individual names of the speakers, the Shapeshifters logo, the baseline and the full schedule. The application also plays back a generative ambient music composition.
