The world’s first boxplay convention Cardboard*Con is launching its very first website today and the design is refreshingly uncomplicated. Most of the page is filled with an enormous image of the convention’s multimedia event poster featuring all the information about the upcoming event.
The image is followed by the following text:
This is the very first Cardboard*Con of EVAR.
If we are smart and good and pretty there will be MOAR.
We meet up at Parasol Bar at Hyatt at 7:30pm for drinks and for CONVENTION.
Famous peoples maybe not show up, but costumes will
be SPLENDOR TIMES TWELVE!!
IF famous peoples show up then they have to buy US the BEERZ.
HERE is ADVICE for HOW TO MAKE your COSTUME!!! (click it!! click it!!)
Take a camera, bring some picture taking and LOTS OF TAPE!!!
Even MOOOAAAR tape.
Parts falling off all the time with the beerz.
Maybe we will move around to different hotels, like a REAL CONVENTION!!
Maybe we will go to TRADER VICS later time after panels.
We are still making up Panels & Tracks.
Okay that enough for now. We are on TWITTER as CARDBOARDCON.
OH, this is UR BADGE. PRINT IT OUT AND WEAR IT.
Or DON’T. We don’t CARE.
The text includes a link to a pep-talk on creating your first boxstume, which is a great start for Cardboard*Con – launching a first website is always a challenge, especially for those bumblers.
