Kill your darlings
– Two years ago, I was running a successful infographics agency. My team consisted of twelve designers, we worked from a beautiful studio, we had plenty of work, and profits were good. Yet, one morning I called my team to the meeting room and I did the hardest thing I ever did: I told my employees that every single one of them would lose their job. I told them I decided to quit, and I was going to close the agency. In my talk I disclose why I took this decision, what this has to do with my passion for information design, and where it brought me today.

Arrangementet er gratis og åpent for alle. Velkommen, og få også med deg utstillingen ”Do you read me – en personlig videoremix av fonteksperimentet FUSE” som er utstilt i lokalene til Grafil.
