Speaker Summary

Presenter 1: Hawken King - artmartr

What is artmartr? Artmartr is for artists, galleries and the public alike to rate, buy and sell artwork. Putting art in grasp: We know that galleries and buyers are on the constant look out for new material, similarly artists are looking to get their material on show. Artmartr seperates the wheat from the chaff.

Hawken King (www.hawkenking.com) is a British designer living in Tokyo. He specialises in new-media graphics, illustration and direction, fused to coding and design solutions. For brands big and small. His accomplished commerical illustrations in a multitude of styles and disciplines, and trend setting websites, have lead him to interact with some of the most recognised clients on the planet over the past 10 years.

PRESENTER 2: Matthew Romaine - Tools, tips, and lessons learned in developing two web 2.0-inspired services

Come and hear how a two-person designer and developer combo led by Matthew built their first website, miistation.com, the wrath of comments and publicity which followed, and the types of orders which came in. Matthew will then discuss some cultural aspects in Japanese web-services as a strategy to increase users, and how these aspects were applied to their latest project -「2くらべ」(www.2kurabe.com).

Matthew and his team recently began developing websites with a focus on community and user generated content. They aspire to bring a unique touch to Internet service development and design, and to better understand the benefits of interaction strategy and Internet technologies.
