From the NM Business Weekly:
The next New Mexico Advertising Federation event looks like it might be of special interest to our film and post-production community as well:
A creative director whose firm has worked in advertising, films and gaming will be the keynote speaker at the next New Mexico Advertising Federation meeting.
Loni Peristere is co-founder of digital production company Zoic Studios in Los Angeles. His talk, "Bending the Rules: Using Technology to Maximize and Expand the Possibilities of Media Advertising," will take place at 11:30 a.m. at the Hotel Albuquerque on Sept. 15.
He won an Emmy Award for special visual effects for work on Joss Whedon's "Firefly" series. He is a multiple nominee and Emmy winner for work on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and has collaborated with Whedon on "Serenity" and the Web series, "Doctor Horrible's Sing Along Blog."
Melissa Walters Leymon said the Ad Fed chapter is working to schedule speakers with a national reputation like Peristere because they can show New Mexico members what is being done by the best in the industry.
"Loni is one of the best when it comes to the digital world," she said.
The lunch is free for Advertising Federation members and $30 for guests. The student rate is $15. RSVPs are due by Sept. 10 by e-mailing email@example.com. For more information, call (505) 710-7383.

New Mexico's AIGA Chapter has brought an amazing group together for their next event in Santa Fe.
Check our animated flyer here: newmexico.aiga.org/tripleplay/
Decoding Design :: Maggie Macnab
Effective design begins with understanding connections. Join Maggie Macnab, identity designer, educator and author of Decoding Design: Understanding and Using Symbols in Visual Communication as she examines the significance of patterns and shapes we encounter in everyday life, and articulates their relationships to natural processes we all intuitively know. Exploring a spectrum of interdisciplinary practices that have common ground in design, this presentation offers the designer, creative professional, student, artist, or lay person a powerful and eclectic approach to creative process and understanding of how design impacts communication. Maggie speaks for national conferences, guest lectures for colleges in the US and abroad, and provides internal training for communications departments on the value of designed communications. Her presentation is mind-stretching, informative, and not like any you've seen before. Attendees will identify both their preferred and disliked traits in symbolic terms and learn what it says about them in universal principles, and begin work on a fusion of the two in balance as a workshop take-away.
Visual Myth :: Joel Nakamura
Ever since the village went global, just about everything can be part of a cultural, visual, and ephemeral stew. The more digital and technological a society becomes, the more it longs for primitive imagery. The more automated, impersonal, convenient or abbreviated our lives get, the more we yearn for storytelling. We will examine visual story telling–the juxtaposition of ancient and modern through symbols and media. How can we use myth, fairy tales, pop culture as sources for communication and expanded creativity?
The Found Symbol :: John Langdon
The yin/yang symbol is arguably one of the most effective logos ever designed. Central to the ancient Chinese philosophy Taoism, the yin/yang symbol was the ultimate inspiration for my entire approach to art and design. This is especially the case for my ambigrams, which are linguistically representative of many of the universal concepts that yin and yang implies. My ambigrams employ bilateral, or mirror-image, symmetry as well as yin/yang’s rotational symmetry to symbolize the physical makeup of the universe and the processes that keep it running. Plus ambigrams are fun.
