SXSW 2013

It’s that time again. SXSW is here. Love it or hate it, it’s an event that most brands feel the need to be at nowadays. (mt) Media Temple has been involved with SXSW for the past nine years and we’re, once again, throwing the official closing party for SXSWi (SXSW Interactive). I’m looking forward to this year’s SXSW as we have a bunch of interesting events going on. It’s also a chance to meetup with friends and colleagues from around the country. I am also extremely excited to see my friend Tina give the Keynote at this year’s SXSWi.

(mt) is involved in several events and here is a list of the ones I’ll for sure be attending:

Sunday, (mt) VIP party at the Fast Company Grill (invite only).
Monday, (mt) + The Noun Project present Ideas Iconathon.
Tuesday, Official SXSWi Closing Party presented by (mt) Media Temple with: Richie Hawtin v DEADMAU5, The Joy Formidable and Local Natives.

If I were staying for the music portion of the festival I’d definitely checkout Justin’s Aquarium Drunkard Showcase and the OhMyRockness/InSound Party.

The image above is an early version of the closing party poster I worked on with Dan Matutina. At the last moment one of the artist managers required we change the poster to black. It still looks great, but I have a fondness for this orange version and the cowboy illustration in the foreground. You can read all about the poster process over on the (mt) SXSW Live Blog.

See you in Austin!
