ContraryCon 2 | Event Program

  • ContraryCon is a one-day creative conference hosted by ISL that’s focused on contrarian or unconventional topics and methods within design, development, and the arts. For the 2016 event, I designed a small program that folded out into a poster, featuring a range of flash tattoo inspired illustrations, which were created in collaboration with Paul Dunbar. A run of 300 were printed on a Risograph by the talented Ammiel Mendoza. Photography and lighting handled by Bryn Dunbar

    The overarching aesthetic was largely motivated by finding beauty through imperfections. We utilized a gritty style of illustration and a production method informed by improvisation. We felt this encapsulated the essence of what ContraryCon embodies as a conference for contrarians.
