Presentation

Overview

Time to rock! Staying enthusiastic about your art and design is not entirely about finding new clients, nor is it about the changing industry. We need inspiration, entertainment, progression, a solid bridge between conceptual and technical, and a positive outlook on our place in the design universe. What matters when searching for your creative voice? This presentation will deal with all of these points wrapped into personal stories, art examples, client case studies, the importance of self-investment and a solid dose of nostalgic inspiration mixed with rock n’ roll.

James will discuss the ins and outs of selling your personal artwork online and the adventure of building his line of designer t-shirts and posters. He will also present the lessons learned from running his Signalnoise Design Studio for the past 5 years and how he went about creating his name in the design industry, which started 30 years ago at the age of 4.

This presentation will be a full and robust extension on last year’s session, which was lovingly titled Back to the Future. This might be titled Part II, but don’t worry you haven’t missed a thing because when this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you’re gonna see some serious shit.
