One of our favorite daily stops, PSFK, is hosting what looks to be a stellar conference full of design and culture figures this September 18 in LA. Shepard Fairey will be there, giving some choice comments about the intersection of art and commerce (and hopefully not from a hospital bed). Nokia futurist Adriana Parcero gathers a crew to talk about Los Angeles culture: Tony Pierce (LAist), Emmanuelle Richard (Vogue), Jeff Miller (Thrillist LA), Shana Nys Nambrot (Flavorpill LA).
David Merkoski of Frog Design leads another panel on the future of entertainment content and Starbucks trend maven Jean-Marie Shields explains what’s brewing for the coffee chain. And this one we can’t wait to see: Missy, founder of Suicide Girls, explains how she took a different route to create differentiation in the mainstream.
