Graphic designers, visual artists, tech entrepreneurs, filmmakers and food-and-drink retailers arrived on the 21st floor of 100 King Street West in Hamilton's downtown core.
Here are some of the highlights from the event.
“The Photolauncher was actually the result of a last-minute spark of creativity from our incredibly talented developers Nick Tomkin and Jenny Belanger - just days before the event,” said Lindsay Kelly of Orbital.
An individual (or individuals) would stand on a sensor board, which is placed a few feet in front of a camera. The weight on the sensor board triggers a five-second countdown and when those five seconds are over, a photo is automatically taken and instantly “launched” onto Twitter. The photos could then be viewed under the event hashtag #youngtreps, or alternatively, by following @GetOrbital
"After brainstorming, we created a few 1:12 scale models made out of LEGO and cardboard to make sure it looked just right. Our art director Heather Williams hand illustrated the buildings in watercolour and then scanned and scaled up the paintings with the largest styrene printed piece more than seven feet tall.
The backdrop of the piece reads, 'We’re from everywhere but here; nowhere else we’d want to be' and we all choose to remain in Hamilton because of the beauty, creativity and opportunity we see in this city every day."
