Create Upstate Recap


We hope you had a blast at Create Upstate, we sure did! Your investment in the Upstate design community only pushes us to make a bigger and better conference in 2015. It is truly inspiring to see the connections being made and old friends re-uniting.

Stumbling across the inter webs, Tyler Finck breaks down the day with a brief recap on each speaker. Thanks Tyler for all of your kind words, this is exactly what we are aiming for – and yes AIGA Upstate NY is alive and well. We can’t leave out Kevin Richardson’s tribute to UPSTNY and last but not least from Mohawk Fine Paper’s Felt and Wire blog!


A dynamic part of the day was our funtivity centered around Why I Love Upstate New York. Everything from our winters to agriculture to Wegman’s was expressed in large post-it note fashion. Thanks to those who participated and keep an eye out for more post-it note showings!

Huge shout out to our speakers, sponsors and all those who attended. We wouldn’t be able to make this a reality without you and your participation. We hope you will bookmark the next Create Upstate for your next dose of epic-ness.

We’d love to hear your ideas for next year, along with any other feedback. Feel free to email us at with anything you’d like to chat about.
