IN NANAIMO @ VOL 4

"In any process, in whatever you do, in any discussion you have about development in the city, it all comes does to just one question - 'What will it look like?' - So sketch it for heaven's sake! Show me your vision!"

In Show Me Your Vision from PechaKucha Night Nanaimo Vol. 4, Designer and Art Director at Balbina Studio, Rob Plante ignites our imaginations with something as simple as a sketch. Trained in typography, graphic design, photography, and illustration at the Royal Academy for Visual Arts in The Hague, the Netherlands, sketching is the cornerstone of his work, having informed everything in his design process throughout a prolific career. Here Having branded thousand companies and organizations as an art director, creative director, graphic designer, filmmaker, copywriter, illustrator, and coach, Robert speaks a language of design that all can understand, especially here in this simple, compelling, and charming presentation about what his city can become through sketches.

APPLAUD THIS!
