Grace, of design*sponge, held a lecture at my school on Tuesday. She presented information about starting your own business online to quite a full audience. You can see her perspective of us here (I'm one of the people sitting on the floor). Even though Donovan and I have run 16 Sparrows for close to 4 years, I learned a lot from her talk and was quite inspired. Oh, many ideas are floating through my head of which you may be seeing the product of come June. For those curious to what was said, Grace mentioned she would be uploading her Power Point presentation on her blog sometime tomorrow. So keep a look out for that.
Grace's compassion and drive behind the indie community and student design work is infectious and I am so happy there are people like her out in the design world. I am also very pleased to hear she enjoyed her stay in Savannah and was inspired by the work coming from the campus. She has put up several posts regarding all the sights from Savannah and is planning on focusing on some student work in the upcoming days. Take a look for yourself!
