Back to the Future: FITC Toronto 2011

As promised, here’s the next installment in the series of FITC Toronto videos we sponsored earlier this year. And here’s a quick writeup from our friends at FITC to tell you why you should take the time to check it out:

Time to rock! Staying enthusiastic about your art and design is not entirely about finding new clients, nor is it about the changing industry. We need inspiration, entertainment, progression, a solid bridge between conceptual and technical, and a positive outlook on our place in the design universe.

In this recorded three-part session “Back to the Future” from FITC Toronto 2011, James White discusses the ins and outs of selling your personal artwork online and the adventure of building a line of designer t-shirts and posters. He also presents the lessons learned from running his Signalnoise Design Studio for the past five years and how he went about creating his name in the design industry.

So get inspired and learn how to represent yourself online and find your own place in the design world.
We’re proud to be a video sponsor for FITC Toronto. Check out the full event details at And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter to hear about more great video content!
