NIce Design #ImWithTheBrand

Northern Ireland is known for punching above its weight in many industries, and design is no exception.

Join us for #NIceDesign, the third installment of our #ImWithTheBrand event series. Four creatives from across Northern Ireland will come together to share their knowledge and insight on areas ranging from graphic design and typography to animation and lifestyle branding.

Our speakers include:

/ Ryan Stanfield

/ Design Director – Kaizen Brand Evolution

Ryan leads the branding team that create and manage some of the most well known brands in Ireland and the UK. After numerous years in branding agencies Ryan has learnt that designing for the client, building relationships and getting to the core of the business is key when undertaking any brief.

/ Colin McKeown

/ Creative Director – Whitespace

Colin helps clients to develop their brand and communications to improve business performance. Originally formed in 1989, Whitespace provides integrated design services in brand creation and strategic design thinking.

/ Barry Falls

/ Illustrator

Barry has always loved drawing, and since graduating from the University of Ulster in 2005 he has managed to make a living from it. His work is an exploration of hand-drawn marks, textures, and imperfect repetition, and is inspired by everything from popular culture – movies, music, television – to tiny details half remembered from everyday life.

/ Lee McQuade

/ Creative Director – Alt Animation

Lee and his team make animation & motion graphics for film, TV and digital with a focus on character building and storytelling. Lee has worked for clients such as Disney, CBBC, Nickelodeon, Channel 4, O2, Children In Need, Discovery Channel, MARS, Romain Jerome and RTE delivering award winning material with exceptionally high production values.

Our event will take place in The Academy in Ulster University on Thurs Nov 23rd from 3pm. Come along for refreshments, networking and inspiration from design leaders in Northern Ireland.

Tickets are £5 until Nov 10th (£8 after) and 25% of the proceeds will be donated to Alzheimer’s Society.
