Simone Trum and Loes van Esch collaborate as graphic design duo Team Thursday, since 2010. They focus on the design of visual identities varying in scale and complexity – from walls to books and exhibition design. The process, or performative aspect, plays an important role in their work – this translates into a special interest for tactility and materiality, but can also evolve in a spatial design or activity.
Where shall we nurture the grass roots of design in order to foster new ideas in the future? In response to this conundrum, Californian based design expert Kali Nikitas and TYPO have together created a new platform, Talent Talks, as a breeding ground for innovative new ideas and design concepts. Hailing from Antwerp, Berlin, Copenhagen, Ghent, Los Angeles, Montreal, Oslo and Rotterdam, the youngsters will each take 30 minutes to present their way of working and share their success stories. The common ground: fearlessness!
