Dyno Creative Goes to DesignerCon 2022!

By Dyno Creative | November 18, 2022

Dyno Creative celebrates building creative communities as they share highlights and key takeaways from their time spent at DesignerCon 2022.

DesignerCon is for Cool Kids

There’s no better place to connect with fellow artists and design lovers than DesignerCon. It’s like a magical wonderland filled with cool art, collectible toys, designer apparel, uber-talented artists, and tasty snacks. Essentially, it’s where all the cool kids hang out, DUH. 

Whether you attended DesignerCon this year and simply want to relive all its glory, or you weren’t able to make it out this year, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered. As a creative digital branding agency, Dyno Creative is all about making cool art with our friends and building community. It’s kind of our thing. You can check out our dynomite work here

In this post, we will share our experiences, both as a collective agency as well as individual artists, our key takeaways, and (of course) fun photos that will hopefully leave you feeling inspired to attend in the future. And if you are looking for other cool events to attend, check out our Events page. We’d love to have you at our next Drink + Draw event! 

Booth #926

Okay, we may be a little biased, but booth #926 was the BEST! Dinosaur swag, illustrated posters, epic caricatures, skateboard decks, pins, stickers—what more could you ask for!? We had a great time catching up with old friends we haven’t seen since before COVID, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to make a bunch of NEW friends! As people mingled and scoped out other booths, one thing definitely caught their eye when they walked by booth #926 – our very own Drew Van Gansen, illustrator extraordinaire! We were thrilled to have him join us for the weekend all the way from sunny Arizona, to do LIVE drawings of some sweet new projects currently in the works. Seriously, it was hypnotizing.  

Key Takeaways

It goes without being said, finding a community of people who share the same interests and passions as you is invaluable. After the past couple of years of lockdowns, social distancing, and canceled events, it was a breath of fresh air to finally connect with people face-to-face. 

Here are some of our key takeaways from DesignerCon 2022: 

  • DesignerCon is like a tangible Instagram feed. You get to see all the creatives you know online but in person. Seeing their work on display and having quality conversations that extend beyond a limited character count was priceless. 
  • Everyone at DesignerCon was so supportive and the energy was electric. No bad vibes are to be found.
  • It’s amazing to have the opportunity to see how other creatives operate, both in their interactions with customers or “fans” as well as with their craft. It’s like being in your favorite college art class, but BIGGER and way cooler!
  • There are some smart kids out there! Shout out to the little guy who came up to our booth and named off all the dinosaurs in our dino paintings. Impressive!
  • Even if you don’t consider yourself an artist, it is a very cool event to experience. It opened my eyes to just how talented people are when they step outside of their comfort zones and try something new. 
  • Bring a lot of money. You will want to buy EVERYTHING. 

Get Your Dyno Merch

If you’re feeling a little left out, today is your lucky day! We have a limited supply of awesome Dyno merchandise just waiting to find a new home. Head on over to Our Shop to get your hands on cool pins, stickers, illustrated posters, t-shirts, and more! It will be like you were there in person!
