For most of our seven years, we’ve had an amazing video introduction thanks to our Creative Directors. This year was no different. Longtime friend of Geekadelphia Steve Rivera took on the Creative Director mantle this year and absolutely crushed it, much like he had for animations used in 2012 and 2013. His depiction of a sports cars driving through a Philadelphia cityscape to a synthwave soundtrack by Eric Zrinsky set the stage, literally.
There was evidence of the retro-future nostalgia aesthetic that Steve set in everything from the logo (which was printed to mini-cupcakes using a sugar 3D printer by String Theory Schools), the printed program, the green screen backdrops for Photobot 3000, the physical awards by NextFab and of course the evening’s on-screen presentation.
