Syd Mead - RMIT 2010

It was a pleasure and honour to bring legendary visual futurist Syd Mead to Melbourne in 2010. Inspired by a studio with Bernie Walsh "Visual Futures" the idea to invite Syd happened one night, I googled his website and discovered he was planning a trip to Sydney. We were able to convince Syd to join us in Melbourne for a sold out "Audience with Syd Mead" event which coincided with the launch of the RMIT wacom lab.

Capacity crowd of over 800 at RMIT Storey Hall for visual futurist Syd Mead's lecture. In collaboration with Alumni Relations this event was  considered the best Alumni event for 2010 and I was invited to represent RMIT University at an Alumni event in Vietnam as a result.
