After two years of building a buzzing community of English-speaking Digerati who meet monthly for "Web Wednesday", I'm proud to announce our venture into the local creative community with a new spin-off event in Cantonese.
"First2Forward" is a fun idea that came from Brent Horner, Associate Creative Director of MRM Worldwide. (I kowtow to his fluent "Pak Hwa"!).
Here's our wall banner with it's Chinese slogan - “搶先傳世界”. (Do you get the pun?):
First2Forward is a fast-paced game show. Two top creative directors, battling it out over five rounds of competition. One event that reveals the freshest, funniest, and freakin' coolest stuff from around the Web.
First 2 Forward就是由城中兩位出色的創意總監，進行五個回合的激戰，誓要以最快速度，將網上最千奇百怪、搞鬼惹笑、怪誕瘋狂的網上資料公諸同好！
Match #1 features Thierry Halbroth, Sr CD, McCann Erickson Vs. Mark Ringer, ECD, TBWA\Tequila and will be held on June 17th at Volar, starting at 8pm (creative types like to go out later!).
Sign up on Facebook. (Below is the email we sent out to the Web Wednesday members as well as the HK4As member list).
I'd like to thank Adobe for their support and for providing their creative suite of design tools as valuable prizes: Adobe Creative Suite 4 Premium and Photoshop Lightroom 2. Great prizes from Adobe!
Let's get forwarding! 傳世界吧！
(Yes Victor, we've finally got there! Thanks for pushing for an event in Chinese and for helping get the word out on HongKongPhooey.wrodpress.com)
