Visual mashup of PopTech 2010

Every year during the PopTech conference, Peter Durand can be seen in a loge box, furiously working above the PopTech stage. During that time he produces nearly three dozen illustrations of speakers. These aren’t just ordinary sketches, though; rather, he distills the essence of each talk and conveys its overarching themes at a glance.

We’re excited to announce a mashup of Durand’s illustrations with photos by Kris Krug. Have a look at this free PDF, a visual record of the curated sessions from PopTech 2010.

Here’s a peek inside:

In the case of Alan Rabinowitz, Durand exposes Rabinowitz’s struggle with a childhood stutter, which the wildlife biologist overcame to become a leading expert in the preservation of the world’s big cats.

Tom Darden of Make It Right works with a team of world-class architects and designers to build green homes for residents of the Ninth Ward in New Orleans, one of the city’s hardest hit areas from Hurricane Katrina.
