24Notion Gets Interactive with SXSW and Needs Your Help

Each spring, Austin, Texas, is taken over by music, interactive, and film with the South By Southwest Festival.   This festival marks the pilgrimage of creative and accomplished folk to the pinnacle of idea sharing during discussions on today’s innovations within the arts and science.  Needless to say, 24Notion is a perfect fit for such a celebration.

Ivo Lukas and the 24Notion team have organized two panel discussions to scintillate your senses and have open conversations about hot topics in today’s entertainment and technology world.  However, we need your help!  Go to the homepage of SXSW PanelPicker 2013 and register to vote for the panels below:

The Future Industry of Music Entertainment


The world of branded music and entertainment is continually evolving and growing.  Looking back, there have been Napster and Myspace but now there is SoundCloud, Grooveshark, Pandora, and so much more.  This panel provides the unique opportunity of being able to look back at what music has done in the past, what is happening right now, and what needs and will be done in the future.


  • The changing relationship between the consumer and the artist
  • What is new and what is dead in music technology
  • The building metrics behind artists, music, and entertainment campaigns
  • Personal experiences from music leaders



Worldview: The Future of Storytelling


International communication within this digital world is developing rapidly.  Social connections are no longer confined to face-to-face interactions, but instead have grown in a very experimental way.  Whether you want to be engaged or not, the digital chatter exists 24 hours a day, seven days a week — how can we keep up?  How can we navigate within its constant growth?



  • How a global engagement will help support the future of communication
  • How we should continue to tell the story
  • How to find content, build and engage communities through a global worldview on digital communications, and tell the story

24Notion Sponsors 2010 OEN Tom Holce Awards

On Wednesday, Downtown Portland’s Hilton Hotel hosted this year’s OEN (Oregon Entrepreneur’s Network) Holce Award ceremony. The OEN Entrepreneurship Awards not only honors the skill and courage it takes for entrepreneurs to create a business out of an idea, but it celebrates what entrepreneurs have been able to achieve for the region’s economy. The prestigious honor of being a finalist comes with a highly competitive nomination process, which makes being named a finalist a significant achievement of its own. These entrepreneurs are inspiring and execute the success and vitality within our community. This year’s awards were especially moving, due to the recent passing of Tom Holce, Northwest business entrepreneur and angel investor who has built or helped to build dozens of successful Southwest Washington and Oregon businesses during the last 50+ years of his life. This ceremony paid special tribute to Tom Holce and his contribution to not only past and future businesses, but also to the art of entrepreneurship. One couldn’t help but feel the solidarity among all as honor was paid to Tom Holce and this year’s finalists.

24Notion was thrilled to be a patron sponsor of this year’s pivotal OEN Holce Awards and celebrates this year’s winners:

• Trust ID: Development Company Award
• Clear Access: Working Capital Company Award
• Smarsh: Growth Company Award
• Sohrab Vossoughi, Ziba Design: Individual Achievement Award
• Ken and Joan Austin, A-Dec: Lifetime Achievement Award

As a business that also began as a mere idea, 24Notion has supported and exemplified entrepreneurship since inception and has been a sponsor of OEN for two years in a row. This year 24Notion utilized creative media skills to generate the introductory video for the awards ceremony. The video celebrated entrepreneurship and highlighted past OEN Holce Award achievements. In addition, during the event the 24Notion media and PR team interviewed finalists, sponsors, guests, and OEN director and board members. Media footage of the pre-event and ceremony will be compiled for coming OEN promotions. Collaboration with OEN celebrates the power of entrepreneurship and pays respect to all those contributing to and supporting the region’s economy.

Interview: Belladonna Marie Collection by Jenny W


What is your design inspiration?

Woman! More specifically, the ocean – at least, for this collection.

Tell us more about Belladonna Marie collection

The SS2011 collection was inspired by the white foam of the ocean’s waves. So clean, so beautiful, so unique.  Using the white color as the backdrop, I incorporated silver, chocolate and varied blues of the ocean to make the garments stand out even more.

Tell us more about your background

I have been dabbling in fashion my entire life. Having an amazing seamstress as a mother, I began sewing at 10 years old.  Since then, I have designed everything from t-shirts to formal gowns.  I am finally launching my own collection and could not be happier!

Who is your audience?

My audience are women who want to feel unique and fashionable wherever they go. They appreciate classic, timeless garments and desire to stand out in a crowd.  Whether shopping, meeting friends for coffee, going to a formal dinner or event, they are the social butterflies whom all others are staring at.

Who is your favorite designer(s)?

I absolutely love classic designers like Ralph Lauren.  He is amazing.  Especially for having continued success for over 50 years, he is my style icon for a list of reasons. I also love Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karen and Anne Klein – they know how to dress women and keep looks timeless.

How would you describe your own style?

I am, without a doubt, a classic, leaning-towards-preppy woman.  I can rock any style, but one of my favorite looks is a conservative, above-the-knee dress that can be dressed up or down (like many in my collection).

Anything you wanted to share to the world? How about fun facts to know about Jenny W?

I have a daughter who will be 2 yrs. In August, so running my own company while being a stay-at-home mom, is challenging, to say the least. I am a world traveler.  I have been to 8 countries so far, and hope to visit every one, even the ones in warfare, before I die. I am usually very refined and sophisticated, but there is a crazy party animal that breaks out every once in awhile.

People watching is one of my favorite things. Without being too obvious or creepy, it is fun to try to figure out what people are talking about, or just making it up altogether.  Always a load of laughs! (When I was a little girl, my friends and I would mute the television and make up our own stories.  )

Whats next for you?

This summer we are going to be in Rock the Runway, on August 14th, the OC Thread Show on August 22nd, and hopefully PFW in October.

My plan is to be in every classy boutique on the west coast by next January.

Long term I aspire to be the next, classic American brand. I hope that when woman think timeless and fashionable, they think of Belladonna Marie.

It would be fun to show at New York, under those dreamed about white tents! After that…Paris and then who knows…I am going to ride the dream wherever it takes me.
