From the creator of the popular Daily Monster YouTube series comes a revolutionary new vision for “characters”, one that brings the alphabet hilariously alive.
The project was born out of Stefan's desire not to rest on his laurels, and to strike out in a new creative direction. He’s excited to talk about where the process has taken him and how other designers can benefit from what he’s learned!
Stefan will not only give a behind-the-scenes look at the creative and technological process behind LetterHeads, he'll also talk about how to increase your odds of having a successful independent design business that lasts, and getting interesting work approved by clients.
The presentation will focus on:
The ways in which the 3D technology inspired Stefan
The process of designing the characters
The process of making and publishing the book
A call to artists to not feel beholden to previous work
Not to be afraid of embracing new tools and technology
Entering new areas of design with the right mix of humility and chutzpah
Designing your career as you design your work
To conclude the evening we will raffle off three copies of Letterheads. A complimentary raffle ticket will be included with your ticket purchase, additional raffle tickets will be available for sale at the event.
