I make no secret of the fact I am a huge fan of my friend and collaborator Craig Black, I promote his work here all the time because he is doing such rad stuff. So I have been thrilled that Craig is featured as a keynote speaker at this years Design Conference.

I also got a little insider info that my fabulous friend Maria Montes will be taking the main stage during this years conference to talk about her lettering, illustration and type design.

So I was thrilled to see conference organiser Matt Haynes teasing at another Type Designer in the line up and hit him up to get the inside scoop about fellow Kiwi Kris Sowersby rounding out a trio of type talent about to hit Brisbane May 09-11.

This line up builds on Matt's commitment to bring type and lettering luminaries to Brisbane. And I am super excited for what is shaping up to be an epic event. I have secured my seat and I highly recommend you do that same as this is a conference not to be missed!
