Paul Buckley, Vice President, Executive Creative Director at Penguin Books is no stranger to the ICON Conference. He graced the ICON7 stage as part of the Art Directors We Love panel. ICON managed to sweet talk Paul into the position as Conference Designers and happily he agreed and designed this spectacular alternative poster for ICON8. Look deep into the eight. You will discover amazing things. Seriously, what’s not to love about that?
Stay tuned for a blog post on Carson Ellis who created the art for the second side of the “Work & Play” ICON8 poster.
ICON8 is scheduled for July 10-July 12, 2014 at the Portland Art Museum in Oregon. To register at the early rate, click here.
