Symposium by It's Nice That
Posted by Gestalten—06/2013

On Friday, June 21, a vast array of the best practitioners and creative talents from the UK and abroad come together for a one-day festival of creativity.

Among the speakers are Berlin-based artist Sarah Illenberger and world famous ad man Erik Kessels from the dutch agency KesselsKramer. Both already gave inspiring workshops at Gestalten Space. At Here, they will both share their inspirations and talk about their creative working process.

Sarah’s talk will explore the development of ideas from everyday observations to fully-fledged design realizations. She’ll also touch on the mistakes that have formed successful self-initiated projects and how intuition and courage have helped carve out her career. Erik will share his working methods and tips for letting your hobbies and passions influence your work. He’ll also talk about the importance of ideas, how it can be good to make mistakes and the beauty of storytelling.
