Design BlogFest >> 20 07


WOW. My head is spinning, i haven’t stopped since 4am PST… basically SFO-JFK flight, getting into the city, checking in, running by a very cool sample sale, walking to grab some delicious dinner at Rickshaw quickly, rushing over to the Design Blogfest… and a few adventures later and after meeting many incredible people… here i am back in the hotel trying to pop a quick post out for those who didn’t make it out.
Big props to Harry Wakefield from MocoLoco and the generous folks at The Apt… and Lockhart Steele over at Curbed/Gawker… they pulled off an insane party… short story? 2500 people RSVP’d (their space holds about 200), i showed up at 6:15, and we barely fit… but 6:30 they were barely letting anyone in (see pictures of hardcore bouncers below)… pseudo-VIP party migrates down a few doors to Gawker HQ (very fun space! sorry i was too busy bouncing around chatting with folks to take pics there), so check out some pictures of the main party at The Apt here. Going to try and catch a little sleep before roaming ICFF tomorrow and huge thanks to everyone who made it out.
update: just saw these pics over at Sellsius Real Estate - poor guys didn’t even get all the way in! but pics of the insane lines…
