Graphika Manila 2009 at Mall of Asia (MOA) Philippines

Posted on Updated on

Graphika Manila(GM) 2009 was an event to remember. We really enjoyed the conference and the speakers were really inspiring. It was my first and it was amazing.

Graphika Manila is a conference that featured some of the most creative minds in various disciplines of design. It aimed to inspire people as well as to gain tips and tricks about design. I love the sense of humor of the speakers and their works really inspired me.

During the question and answer portion, I literally went and in front to take pictures of the speaker. It wasn’t only me but everyone with their camera went in front. We comfortably sat on the carpet and almost filled the front area of the cinema.

After the Q&A, most of the guests swarmed the speakers for autograph. It took me awhile to gain some confidence and ask for one.

The funniest and I could say, the happiest part of the event was when Stefan Sagmeister asked everyone to stand up and sing along with him. The song really cracked everyone up because most of its lyrics was so true.

All in all, the event was a success. Really looking forward to the next year’s event. =)

    I agree, I have seen Stefan’s talk a couple of times and I’m glad he had this new “pakulo” at the end. Glad you enjoyed. See you at the next GM!
