You've caught me mid development. I'm working on the site, so if you see something missing or broken, that's why.

About the Client

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community.

A friend of mine helped organize a TEDx event at the high school he works at. The event was focused on the West African Akan concept “Sankofa,” which very loosely means going back to the past and take from it to help shape the future. Speakers discussed several meanings associated with the word and described it in various contexts.

Most freelance projects were completed in the evenings and on weekends and most often not consecutively.

A Great Initiative

This was the second TEDx project I had worked on. I had previously worked on the website with an agency Bureau Group for the TEDx Nickel City event in Sudbury years prior.

I'm a big fan of what TED stands for and I love that they sponsor these kind of independent events. The idea is to spread ideas. That's definitely something I can get behind, so I'm happy to work on projects like these.
