Maker Faire Center Stage — Illustrated!

Maker Faire Center Stage — Illustrated!

A few weeks before Maker Faire, we got a call from Nora Herting, founder of ImageThink, a company that provides live “graphic facilitation” services to conferences and meetings.  Nora loves Maker Faire and she offered up a wonderful gift from her company:  the time of two great illustrators, Heather Willems and Lloyd Dangle (you might know his Troubletown or recognize his drawings on the Airborne packaging), to come down and interpret our Center Stage talks in pictures.

Here is Lloyd in action, illustrating Dave Eggers’ talk, “A Modest Proposal.”

For a short-cut impression of the ideas that went down over the weekend, take a peek at the ImageThink team’s graphic renditions. See after the jump for more of our faves, or take a look at the whole set on Flickr. (You can also go the long route and actually watch most all the Center Stage presentations via our video archive.)

It was cool how the images “piled up” as tangible artifacts of all the big ideas that floated through Center Stage over the two days of Maker Faire. See the complete set of Maker Faire ImageThink posters on Flickr.
