A couple of days ago, there was a bit of a Calgary design verbal throw down on the old e-water cooler that is Twitter. After a conversation surrounding the ever popular online portfolio site Dribbble and a lack of motivation to post there, a challenge between local designers Jason Dorn and Cam Hoff was issued to see what local Calgary (and a couple ex-Calgary) designers could build off of a simple design idea.
Out of that conversation the always resourceful Mr. Jason Dorn beautifully handcrafted the site iHeartyyc.com as a catchall to showcase all of the great designs. Since then the little challenge has grown from a handful of designers to a nice cross-section of the design community in Calgary. It’s even garner the attention for other designers in different cities and some local media.
Anyways, I just wanted to write a quick post to give a massive shout out to Jason, Cam, Kevin, Russ and all the other designers who have been taking part and spreading the word. It’s been really interesting to find out about other designers in Calgary and to see the various takes on the concept. If you want to partake, just follow the instructions on iHeartyyc.com
p.s. If I forgot anyone else associated with the project my apologizes.
