Analogue/Digital have just announced three international presenters for The Design Conference in Brisbane, May 2016
The Design Conference has successfully evolved to become one of the world’s favourite two-day design forums. To supersede the expectations of this years event, organiser and founder Matthew Haynes has successfully secured a range of internationally acclaimed entrepreneurs, designers and artists to make their Australian debut at next years conference in Brisbane, May 2016. Haynes explains:
“Over the past five years we have featured more that 90 of Australia’s best known creatives including super-stars like Chris Doyle, Kevin Finn and Dare Jennings. To keep our audience excited and engaged, we must debut internationally acclaimed thought leaders at our event here in Brisbane.”
To demonstrate his intentions, Haynes has announced the first three presenters for next years event as part of a Pozible crowd funding campaign.
Already secured for next year’s event (including First Coat Art and Music festival in Toowoomba):
• D*Face: an internationally acclaimed street/gallery artist from the UK.
• Timba Smits: an expat illustrator, artist and art director residing in the UK.
• Jonathan LeVine: a world renowned gallery curator from New York City.
According to Haynes, this is just the start. For every A$5,000 raised over their A$15,000 initial target, he promises to deliver another international speaker until a maximum of six internationals are secured by raising over A$30,000.
When asked about hitting the proposed target, Haynes replied “I believe we’re making a genuine and compelling offer to our fans in exchange for their financial support. Not only will they be saving up to A$200 per two-day ticket, they also have the ability to maximise the number of international speakers we feature based on their level of support. This is the Pozible campaign that keeps on giving”.
Over and above two-day passes, a range of interesting and affordable rewards have been made available providing the global design community with the opportunity to support based on their budget, expectation and or location.
