This year, on a gorgeous evening during the first weekend of SXSW, we had the chance to partner with the Austin Motion Artists Group to host a party called SIGNAL. The event was a way for the local design community of Austin to interact with the visiting designing community here for SXSW. 

An evening of design, and music; the night featured headlining talks from Alex Toader (discussing his concept development process on Alita: Battle Angel), and James Ramirez, who discussed his main-on-end titles for Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse. We were very excited to debut our first works in the See Beneath The Surface project. I can't tell you gratifying it was to see people finally interacting with the artwork after staring at it on my screen for the past few months. There were also art installations from Ryan Padgett who had his interactive music and visualization piece TRIP at the party and Charles Pierce and Russell Vargo who designed immersive VR pieces that were displayed on the 180-degree VR projector that was at the event. Here are some photos. 

Special thanks to Mograph.com for sponsoring beer and wine, MAXON for buying pizza, Crosswater Digital Media for loaning us the BroomX VR Projector, MusX for allowing us to use their space and everyone who came out to celebrate design.
