If you're ever in need of a new wardrobe or a set of coasters, just go to SXSW.

This was my first year of going, despite living in Austin for almost 6 years now. I was lucky enough to get a great haul of free stuff without a badge, because I stuck to free events, like design meet-ups and company parties. I can only imagine how much junk I'd have if I did have a badge. Aside from the Surface RT I won at the Dribbble Meet-up, my favorite piece has to be the limited-edition GSD&M poster. A big shout out to the many friendly faces I met, and to the friends who joined me.

Swag pictured above are from Mutual Mobile, Thirteen23, GSD&M, SXSW Create, Dribbble, and Microsoft.
