Heather Reisman “In Conversation” with designer Bruce Mau and author Warren Berger on the subject of Berger’s latest book, “Glimmer: How Design Can Transform Your Life, Your Business, and Maybe Even the World.” Recorded live at Indigo Manulife in Toronto, November 9th, 2009.
On October 19th, 2009, Bruce Mau Design hosted an evening of mischief and merrymaking in honor of opening the design studio’s new location at 469C King Street West, Toronto. FTP Media was hired to webcast and document the live event.
FTP Media was hired for a one-year contract to consult on and digitally archive Bruce Mau Design‘s entire body of work, firstly by taking more than 8 terabytes of offline digital media assets (located on hundreds of CD- and DV-ROMs) and transferring them to the BMD servers. Then, through a process of cataloguing all materials, FTP established a comprehensive, locally-based media archive. As a result of this lengthy and detail-oriented process, many items representing significant areas of client work were now available internally, allowing the design firm the means to access and showcase their extensive body of work and develop a complete website redesign.
