TED Talks, #illustraTED

By Paula Tesch

It’s no secret that Duarte has a big crush on TED. As presentation people, and lovers of all things story, TED is the man of our dreams. This year, we declared our love by hosting #illustraTED, a tweet-stravaganza dedicated sharing content inspired by #TED talks. (And over the weekend, they reciprocated our love by posting a little write-up about our event!)

Our team live-sketched and live-tweeted, churning out visual notes, iconic graphics, quotes, ten-word summaries, a few haiku, and even a limerick. We had a great time, even after Twitter put the kibosh on the fun. (Did you know there’s a limit on the number of tweets you can tweet? Yeah, neither did we.)

We shared a few photos and videos below, but you can see ’em all in our Facebook album (no hourly limits there!) or time travel back to the event and review the @Duarte Twitter stream.

Big thanks to our followers for all the support, the wonderful people of TED for the continual inspiration, and of course, Duarte’s #illustraTED team for for being straight-up amazing.
