Gavin Strange // JamFactory - The work of Gavin Strange
Gavin Strange is a jack of all trades, master of flip all; Senior Designer for Bristol's Aardman Animations by day, and a creative berk going under the alias 'JamFactory' by night. Working in the field of graphic design but dabbling in illustration, toy design, photography and film making, Gav will talk your ears off about design if you give him half the chance.
A firm believer in not being able to make fun unless you're having fun, let Gavin bend your ear for an hour to convince you to stop talking about stuff, and just go and do the stuff, regardless of whether you have the skills to do so.
Luke Tonge // LIFE Agency
Senior Designer at LIFE Agency, Luke recently picked up Gold at the International Design Awards for his re-imagining and re-design of Monotype magazine 'The Recorder'.
Casper Franken and Carin Standford // Shotopop
Shotopop is a devout team of visual zealots who pride themselves on conjuring the new, the unimagined and the fantastical. In their offices, furiously snipping silver scissors give birth to a thousand paper feathers, crazy caffeine dreams turn into flashing pixel rainbows, and the most ambitious flights of fancy become their proudest moments.
Their work explores a diverse range of design and illustration styles, including motion and interactive design, typography, infographics, digital and tactile illustration. As a studio they have produced commercial pieces for clients such as Converse, Google and Nike.
Jonathan Costello // Adult Art Club
Art director, designer, illustrator and crisis management expert working in music and youth culture. Jonny runs Adult Art Club, a creative practice working in the grey area of design, art direction, illustration and image making.
Ian Francis // Flatpack Film Festival
Flatpack is a festival which takes over venues across Birmingham every March. It draws people from far and wide with a mixture of films, performances, contraptions and surprises, and has been described as “magnificently eclectic” (Time Out), “joyously inventive” (the Guardian) and “the UK’s most creatively curated film festival” (the Independent).
Ian has clocked up fifteen years putting on film events in Birmingham and beyond, and co-founded Flatpack with partner Pip McKnight in 2006. He also writes for publications including Sight and Sound and Little White Lies.
