Oh, its getting closer - 48 days until PyCon US 2013 kicks off - you have registered, right?
One of the joys I get helping the foundation put together PyCon US is being able to tap the talents of amazing people - one of those is Idan Gazit, who designed the non-web artwork for PyCon 2012, and has once again done it for PyCon 2013. Each of his designs has been unique, but I have to say, 2013's design really takes the cake:
This piece just makes me happy on so many levels - it's retro and futuristic at the same time - it incorporates the theme ("Change the Future") and hints and the surprises we have in store for the conference. It's beautiful in its simplicity.
This artwork will be featured in the mobile application we will once again have, the print program and the t-shirts. Note, that t-shirts are an additional cost / checkbox when registering for PyCon 2013 - we've focused majority of the funds this year to some special projects - Financial Aid being one of them. So if you want to get what will sure to be a keeper of a t-shirt, be sure to let the registration team know.
My deep personal thanks go to Idan for making this - he did so under a lot of other external pressures, family time, etc. I of all people know how hard it is to steal time from so many other things to put thought and creativity into things - so thank you Idan.
