I went to the Circles Conference in Grapevine [DFW Area] this past week and still haven’t come down off the elation of being around that many talented people at one time. Thanks to another beautiful mind, Ismael Burciaga who puts on this entire conference, one of the first people I met turned out to be someone I instantly gravitated towards. Her name is Megan Gray, and she is a graphic designer out of Orange County. Humble to say the least, this crazy talented girl was so much fun to be around. I snapped a couple shots of her before she got the “deer in the headlights” look that only real camera-shy people understand. Speaking of, I found myself being video’d to give my take on the Conference and that flush feeling in my cheeks had me wondering if I was going to make it to the end of the questions without passing out. My eyes started to dart wildly around, looking for nothing in particular, just feeling the heat man. I’m pretty sure I gave them nothing substantial, pausing awkwardly when my thought couldn’t make it off my lips. Oh, and I couldn’t insert foot in mouth fast enough before expressing that one of my many favorite parts of the Circles Conference was an After-Party. I don’t think that’s what they were looking for on their highlight reel, but… It was a fun party. Details to come on that one. Anyway, Megan posted this really nice message about me on Instagram and I couldn’t get past this sense of appreciation for it until I decided to kick off an idea I’d been tossing around to feature my favorite creatives so that you can know them too. Check her work out on Dribbble. The lady has awesome skills! I met so many amazing people there and can’t wait to share them all with you.
