We had the wonderful opportunity to join, participate and get inspired with over a thousand bright minds for TEDxVancouver yesterday. The day was full of amazing, thought provoking and inspirational speakers. My favourite speakers were from Aaron Coret and Stephen Slen, Nolan Watson and Jer Thorp. Rick Chung of vancouverisawesome.com has a great blog post of the entire event, you can check it out here.
Not only did we have the privilege of attending the event, we also had the privilege of designing the floral decor. The theme for this year’s event was “THE FRONTIER” focusing on pushing boundaries through knowledge and innovation. With this in mind, we came up with the frontier inspired floral designs below.
We designed the arrangement in a sleek mirror container, inspired by a prototype aircraft. The structure of the arrangement gave it movement, as if the arrangement is moving fast, while the red ribbon ties the arrangement to the TEDx logo.
Here is a low quality picture during the lunch break of one of the arrangements at the registration table. Beautiful photo’s of the event can be seen on Jeremy Lim’s website.
