Let’s see what the future brings

Dear friends of Let’s Talk Design. Due to these uncertain times, we made the decision to restart the events in 2021. That means that we will make new planning for next year with the same speakers, and the same location for the events.

If you already bought a ticket for this year we will send you a code before the end of this year that you can use to book your new ticket. You can use that code for any of the editions next year. 

We will keep you in the loop when we have confirmed the new dates! That should be quite soon, although because of these uncertainties we are not sure if we are able to host events the coming year.

That’s why we are working on something different at the same time. Be safe and we hope to see you soon!

6 Questions with illustrator Sasa Ostoja

How and when did you start drawing?

I graduated as a fine artist, around 2009 I believe, from the HKU (Fine Art School in Utrecht), where I focussed on painting. I created abstract, geometrical and precise work. To pay my rent I decided to make drawings to earn more money. The drawings would take less time since my paintings took weeks, mostly months to finish. I never thought I would fall in love with drawing eventually. Drawing enables me to awaken the stories in my head. My love for nature and her diversity in flora and fauna can get a stage. To my drawings, I can add sounds and movement and motivates my imagination endlessly.

Let’s Talk Design 2020

Hello again! 2020 has started and we are committed to organise at least 4 editions of Let’s Talk Design this year (Antwerpen, Gent, 2x Brussel). After organising these events since 2013 we’ll be introducing new hosts for some of the events. The first new host of 2020 is Chiel De Cuyper, He will be hosting and co-curating our Ghent edition.

Another thing that will change is that the number of student tickets will be limited for some locations because of the capacity.

So, for all of you who have been visiting our events. Thank you! Let’s Talk Design wouldn’t be possible without you.

An interview with Henry Daubrez of Dogstudio

Henry never liked school, he likes to have calm and green surrounding him when he is not at the studio. He likes the smell of the seasons, especially in early spring. He’s a big fan of pop culture and music, he always has his headphones on. And just like many creative people, he is an overthinker. Something that pushes him forward and at the same time puts a lot of pressure on him. He is a son, but also a dad, and a boyfriend. Henry is proud of what the whole team achieved with Dogstudio so far, and at the same time, he is also endlessly unsatisfied. “I am always convinced we can do better. “
