Have a look at this little mini-site assembled for the Freshly Squeezed Design Group. Built in Flash, this website guided members of the group to sign up under different commitees.
Freshly Squeezed is a community of creative professionals who, within a non-competitive environment, share inspiration and knowledge about design, process and topics related to working in a creative field. Since 2004, Freshly Squeezed has been gathering once a month to discuss, educate, and inspire one another.
From graphic, web and motion designers to photographers and architects, they gather to share in each other’s wisdom, stories and process. With over fifty members, the Freshly Squeezed community represents a wide variety of creative talent with over a hundred years of combined professional experience.
Many of the members have relocated to beautiful British Columbia after holding positions at large creative agencies in urban centres such as Vancouver, San Francisco, New York City, Toronto and Paris.
The Freshly Squeezed design group originally came together to help each other submit logos for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Such fun and enthusiasm erupted that the group continued to meet. Topics such as creative process, client communications, portfolio reviews, and copyright and professional contracts are routinely discussed. Since the group includes not just graphic designers, but web designers, illustrators, photographers, architects and artisans, the ideas and comments are far more numerous than what any one individual could come up with. This allows greater growth as professional creatives, and creates a communal design community for the sharing of ideas and projects.
