The looks behind the logo

Meet Ms. Krystyna Ninh – the designer who won our WordCamp logo contest earlier this year. When she is not designing branding materials or WordPress websites, she can usually be found hanging with her dog Reese. Krystyna’s loves Typography, mustaches (not real ones, but putting mustaches on everything) and anything Harry Potter.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Krystyna over the past year. She is amazing and a talent to keep your eye on! She’s gonna do big things :)

Spotlight: Brandon Dempsey

Brandon’s presentation: WordPress & Marketing

How many years have you used WordPress? 6

I look forward to speaking because: Online marketing has been completely changed by WordPress – there is so much more you can do!

Favorite WordPress Project: americanowandhere.org. It is an amazing site that is capable of a tremendous amount.

In the future, I see WordPress being used as the standard in web content.

WordPress has changed the way I interact with the web, share content with others and build profitable business.

Best real-life camping story: When I was in boy scouts, we once went camping out in Kansas somewhere. We were in this gigantic open field that was probably 4-5 football fields long. As we were setting up our tent a storm started to blow in. We had one of those dome pop up tents and just as we got it all set up (but before we got the stakes in the ground) the wind went crazy and our tent started flying/rolling away from us in the wind. We must have chased it at least 2 FOOTBALL fields before we caught it and then we couldn’t get it back because it was like one big kite as we tried to walk back. Ultimately we had to take it all apart and carry it back, then reassemble putting the stakes in the ground FIRST.

Nicholas’s presentation: Getting Social, a roadmap to seamless WP integration

How many years have you used WordPress? 2.5

I look forward to speaking because: My passion is to use social media to help people get content out there easily.

Favorite WordPress Project: My personal site, A Branded You

In the future, I see WordPress being used for  bringing a fresh perspective to people/shops that use other solutions.

WordPress has changed the way I can focus – more on the content and less on the programming.

Best real-life camping story: When I was younger we were camping and it rained the entire time, we ended up sitting in the tent and playing the board game version of “Wheel of Fortune” for the whole trip.

Spotlight: Chris Miller

Chris’s presentation: Using WordPress for podcasting/videocasting

How many years have you used WordPress? 5

I look forward to speaking because: everyone has a passion, and podcasting/videocasting is an easy way to show it off.

In the future, I see WordPress being used for  pretty much any content management system that involves social capabilities.

WordPress has changed the way I look at media

Best real-life camping story: I had a horse lie down on my leg while riding.  In the middle of a trail he just stopped, got down and laid on his left side pinning my leg.  In the end funny.  As a kid, a bit freaked out.
