FUN-DERCATS, HO!
with Gavin Strange

Let Gavin Strange bend your ear to excitedly persuade you to say ‘yes’ to everything, irrelevant of whether you have the skills or not - he did and now has a dream job! A jack of all trades and a master of none, Gavin has stumbled his way through a career in design and wants to share his insights; because if that jerk can do it, imagine what YOU can do. Expect nonsense, silliness, passion and honesty from a designer that’s eager to share.

Gavin Strange is a jack of all trades, master of none; Senior Designer for the Digital arm of Bristol's Aardman Animations by day, and a designer going under the alias 'JamFactory' by night. Working in the field of graphic design but dabbling in illustration, toy design, photography and film making, Gavin has created pretty things for the BBC, Diamond Supply Co. and Howies to name but a few and 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. If this berk can bumble his way through a career, then imagine what YOU can do!

Presented live at FITC Amsterdam 2014 on Feb 24-25, 2014
