TechEd is an
annual conference for developers and IT professionals put on by Microsoft. It
is held in several locations around the world. The conference holds an event, Speaker
Idol, during which the attendees, mainly IT professionals, are invited to speak
about a subject of their choice. The best speaker wins a prize. The design
solution here is a nod to the reality show, ‘Pop Idol’, and presents four
characters with different personalities and facial emotions. An amusing
way to present a very technical brand event.
