BCA News: Winter 2018
BIOCOMM 2018 Preview
Going places in 2018? Make sure to add BIOCOMM 2018, Savannah, Georgia, June 19‑22 to your list! Here’s a preview of our keynote speakers.
Creative director, photographer, designer, strategist and storyteller, Andrew Davidhazy will kick off the program with the Marie Ikenberg Lindberg Keynote address. Andrew travels all over the world creating experiences and narrative journeys that are meaningful and inspiring to people in some way. It doesn't matter what form that takes as long as it's the right one.
His project work has included the branding of China's largest sportswear company, Li-Ning, and Ottawa's NASL and CFL sports franchises; architecture and experience design programs for Boeing, Holiday Inn and the Edmonton Oilers Arena; product innovations for P&G, Citi and Rubbermaid; marketing campaigns for HP, Getty, SpotMe and Microsoft; and interactive installations and websites for AT&T, Chicago Cubs, GE Healthcare and Disney.
Andrew’s career has taken him around the world. One of his most memorable journeys was in 2013 when he completed a 5 month, 2660 mile long solo hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, going from the Mexican border to Canada through the mountains of California, Oregon and Washington.
A more recent journey was to Iraq in June of 2017. Through a series of photographs and stories documenting the people and complexity of the Middle East region, such as Egypt, Andrew’s stories and images are just flat out amazing.
