PyCon 2012: Official PyCon 2012 Artwork - Awesome!

I've got the great pleasure to finally show off something that's been in the works for awhile - we got to partner with well renown designer and djangonaut Idan Gazit for the PyCon 2012 artwork.

The result is pretty awesome and epic and will take form in the t-shirts, program guide and other areas of the conference. Take a look for yourself:

I was pretty ecstatic when Idan sent it over - he also added a pretty mind-blowing time lapse video of how it was created, saying:

… If you’ve ever wondered how the design sausage is made, look no further! Note the vast amount of time spent iterating, trying things out, seeing what works and often discarding things that don’t. It sucks to discard work you’ve spent time on, but that’s really just the nature of the beast, and better to fail early and try something different than keep beating a dead, er, snake.

You can see his thoughts, and the time-lapse video over on his blog. We're psyched to have Idan involved in the art for the conference!

In addition to this awesome artwork, we have to give a major amount of credit to the Eldarion team (specifically, their designer Yulka Plekhanova) for the awesome website design we have this year - the website represents a giant leap in terms of visual design for PyCon, and we can not thank them enough.

Awesome art, for an awesome conference and a blowout year!
