Earthdance 1999 was on of the the first graphic design gigs of my career. It’s so far back now it is outside of my old harddrives, languishing in somewhere back on my old spindles of cd’s from a time when my design was just beginning. I met Sandra Karpetas, the organizer of Earthdance Vancouver 1997-2000, before I even had really cruised the modern internet. She was an inspirational being, encouraging me to get involved in the dance music community beyond my interests as a partier and dj, which really jumpstarted my interest in graphics. It was through Earthdance that I clued in to how large the global dance electronic dance music culture was.
