Graphic Design for Civic Pride Video & Slides

Here's the video of the presentation about the need for a new Philadelphia flag that I delivered at Fast Forward Philly a couple of weeks ago. The idea and my proposal were well received at the event, and there is great momentum for the idea of updating this important element of our city's brand. Hope that you enjoy!

NB: There were some audio issues at the event, and the slides are a little hard to see, so I've included them below. If you want to keep pace, you can click through them about one every 20 seconds.

Fast Forward Philly 2013

Come to the Center for Architecture in Philly tonight to see a great slate of speakers talk about what's next for Philadelphia. I'm happy to report that I've been selected to speak, and will be discussing "Graphic Design for Civic Pride: A New Flag for a New Philadelphia.

Check back here after the talk, and I'll post my full slide deck, along with a little bit more about why Philly would benefit from a new flag and why I think I've come across a great solution! Hopefully my arguments will be even more cogent when not restricted to 20 seconds a slide.

Here's the event info for tonight, along with the full slate of presenters:
