SFD team packs in the making

Based on last year feedback from teams who failed to receive their packs on time we had to advance the deadline for getting the SFD goodies to ship earlier. This year deadline is in 5 days and therefore we already started production of most of the package content already. Today we have just collected the balloons and stickers. We kept the same design with our one-year old SFD logo provided last year by Jeff Lim from Maxus Media & Software Pte. Ltd. of Singapore and licensed CC-BY attribution to SFD. We however increased the printing dimensions on the balloons and decided to go for a colorful set making them available in orange, blue, green, pink and yellow. We hope those will provide more colors and joy to your event and reflect positively on the audience. Of course we couldn’t just tell you, we also had to show you, so here is a quick shot taken outside of those balloons.

For those thinking of organizing a SFD event in your area but not registered yet, the deadline is on July 15th, so hurry up!

Celebrate SFD with us on September 15!

We are currently producing team packs for 200 SFD teams. The packs will be delivered to teams that registered on or before July 15th on a first come first served basis. If you haven’t registered your SFD event yet, simply create your team page  and complete the registration form. All information and links are of course available from SFD website.

Another good news is that three excellent proposals were received for the upcoming SFD Summit, we (DFI) are currently reviewing those proposals and asking clarifications to the respective teams emails hopefully we can announce the location in the coming week!
