Refresh October with University of Ulster MFA
Monday 22th October, Doors 7pm
The Black Box, Hill Street
For Refresh October, we're changing the usual format slightly, and inviting four students from University of Ulster's Interactive Multimedia Design Masters to give a short 15 minute talk on a topic of their choosing.
1. Kyle Gawley - From 0 - 1.0
In this high-paced - think Pecha Kucha on crack - presentation, Kyle Gawley will outline a few of the things you need to consider when forming your own digital startup. In a quick fire talk, with 100 slides in just ten minutes, he'll explore some of the things you might have overlooked in the quest to build a startup.
2. David Turner - Collaboratively Speaking
Having transitioned from working solo to working as a part of a tightly knit team, David Turner will share his observations on the world of working collaboratively and how this impacts on the wider world, and how it can relate to and enhance practice.
3. Pauline Clancy - Language and Typography
Language and typography are inextricably linked, Pauline Clancy will explore this relationship with an emphasis on the Irish printed word, exploring the marks that form our alphabet and enable us to communicate both on paper and digitally.
4. Jonathan Hall - The Designer Entrepreneur
The definition of a graphic designer is changing. Once rooted in the service industry, graphic designers are now evolving into product designers and retailers. Jonathan Hall will cast a light on the exciting opportunities ahead for the designer as entrepreneur.
Refresh is a bi-monthly event for the designers and developers of Belfast's web community to get together to share ideas, talk principles and debate technique. Each Refresh is centred around a short talk and, of course, there's plenty of beer and chat to be had too. You should follow Refresh on Twitter.
