Last week Queen City creatives converged at Dilworth Neighborhood Grille to hear from some of Charlotte’s best design minds. The format saw 10 presenters speak for 10 minutes each about a wide range of subjects, and the house was packed with over 100 attendees. Here are a few photos showcasing the special event, one that kicked off 2014 in style.

Please note that these photos were taken by copywriter Patrick Saleeby. Obviously, photography is not his strong suit. But he wanted people to know it was really dark in there. And to remember that he’s a copywriter, one who’s not planning to quit his day job. He also wanted to make sure everyone knew he did his very best.
