Well there’s only one way to find out!

Adam Waddingham - Our Type: the faces of, well, everything. 

Typefaces surround everything we do. The words on signs, transport, documents, and shops. They tell a story. The designs - created, influenced, or revived - are rooted in historical references and Adam will take a whistle stop tour through the many faces that surround us on a daily basis.
 

Anne Forgan - The Problem with Hygge

Chris O'Connell 20 Stories High

20 photos of everyday people I met or interacted with in the ten days between agreeing to do PKN and delivering it.

Adrian Palka - 20 Pics to Siberia and back

Tabitha Gray - My Top 20 things animals have taught me

Tabitha has been lucky to have a lot of animals share her life with her.  She’s realised that each one has taught her something unique...
 
Georgia Kelly - TBD

Whatever you want to share, we want to hear about it - get in touch!

[Like all our themes, this is intended as a prompt, inspiration or jumping off point - whatever the theme inspires for you, we want to hear about it! To sign up to speak, please get in touch via the 'Want to present?' link.]
