in Seminars and Events (E)

[] Boston, Massachusetts - Big Spaceship joins the speaker line up at Flash on Tap Conference May 28-30, 2009 taking place at The Castle in Boston. Big Spaceship, a digital creative agency in Brooklyn, NY has mastered the process of telling stories and starting conversations in the digital world. Their skills and work have earned Big Spaceship numerous creative awards. This presentation delivered by Jamie Kosoy, Associate Technical Director, Big Spaceship, promises to give attendees a look under the hood at the approach, process, decisions, and rationale behind the firm's design and build mantra.

"How firms combine design, development, strategy and production determines the quality of, not only the work they produce, but the user experience," said Chris Allen, Flash on Tap Conference Program Developer and Infrared5 CEO. "I've been to Big Spaceship to see how they run projects (which is very different than our approach at Infrafed5). It's a very effective and unique way to do things. In his presentation, Jamie will share how two developers and six designers can and did work together simultaneously, creating very cutting edge stuff."

In Kosoy's presentation A Portrait of a Site he'll show and tell the backstory behind the process Big Spaceship has created to enable a team of people, who all contribute to the creation of client projects, the ability to perform disparate tasks simultaneously. And how does Big Spaceship measure success? The duration of the "stay" or how long visitors spend on a Big Spaceship created site.

"We've worked really hard to create a process which allows collaboration across responsibilities," said Jamie Kosoy, Technical Director, Big Spaceship. "Our firm believes in team concepting - that ideas come from everywhere - which allows us to create compelling experiences on the web. Our sense of fun drives our passion and that passion drives creativity."

Kosoy joins thirty-one other speakers who share their insights, knowledge, and Flash industry experience with attendees of the Flash on Tap Conference taking place May 28-30, 2009 in Boston.
