Icon.me. Launch Party!!

Today, Icon formally launched its software service, a digital business card for the modern professional. Icons are optimized to be shared with anyone, anywhere via smartphone, email or online – and Icons live in the cloud, so your contact information is always up to date. Icons also create rich, dynamic professional profiles automatically by aggregating your existing social feeds, allowing you to easily curate your professional persona. After a successful private beta and just in time for SXSW, Icon is now publicly available at www.icon.me.  

Tonight’s party commemorated the public launch with family, friends, colleagues, press and featured Icon users. It was a bit too chilly to chill on the McGarrah Jessee rooftop lounge, so we turned the McJ lobby into the perfect party venue.

Catered by Peached Tortilla food truck, guests enjoyed passed appetizers and a bar, featuring “the iconic” – a paloma recipe that proved to be quite the hit. DJ Ariel Quintains set the mood from the balcony while party goers mingled and shared Icons. For those who had not yet created Icons, two Apple desktops served as “kiosks” for browsing and creating profiles.
