President’s Letter

In exploring the internet, like many of us do, it always amazes me how many gatherings happen around our regions and love stumbling across them. My most recent finding was the Social Media Breakfast Syracuse and the Foundry’s Creative Capital Network. Naturally a Syracuse local I attending the SMBS and noticed so many new faces with a few familiar – it was great. We encourage you to find these local gatherings and spread the word – so us internet scroungers have an easy find.

September was a really excited month as Syracuse launched its first ever one day web conference, SyracuseSync. Blast of Syncnauts as Dan started us off with a day full of connectivity – thanks! We talked about ways to deepen our connections and explode out of our silos. If you missed this momentous landmark, make sure to check out our fun filled day and speaker wrap up.

We think Dan is awesome, so we asked him to speak on the Responsive Web Design Workflow, as part of our Creative Dialogues webinar series. Only 8 seats are available, however…. ALL are welcome to submit questions via twitter (use hashtag #creativedialogues), facebook or email. The great part is this presentation and any materials will be available online for all to reference as well.

In preparation for Halloween join us for a Design Crawl exploring your cities fall beverages… I do mean local creative studios first! We have some great places such as Spiral Design Studio, Oberlander Group, The Foundry for At Design & Culture, The Foundry Press, Truth Collective, We Make Nice Websites and Terakeet. This event is simultaneously happening in Cohoes, Syracuse and Rochester – Giddy Up!
