This event has happened

To conclude BDF Conference 2021 we’re delighted to welcome 3 speakers who share a passion for colour as an expression of emotion and personality.

Through the conference Vito hub, we’ll be sharing three 30 minute films from our speakers, followed by a live Q&A where you can pose questions in the live chat.

Brian Collins is the founder and Chief Creative Officer of COLLINS, an independent strategy and brand experience design company based in New York and San San Francisco. With clients including Mailchimp, Twitch and Spotify, COLLINS’ work exudes colour and their playful brand design is recognisable across the world.

Providing colour expertise, commentary, consultation and workshops, Momtaz Begum-Hossain has enjoyed a colourful career as a crafter and woman of words. As Colour Theorist, she has developed the colour philosophy Hello Hue, a seven-point manifesto for how to welcome colour into your life. Ahead of the launch of her third book, Hello Rainbow: Finding Happiness in Colour, Momtaz will share her story of a life surrounded by colour.

Eddie Opara is an English-born American based graphic designer. His multifaceted work encompasses refreshing design, modern technology and strategy. As the author of Color Works, a comprehensive reference for using colour in design, over the years, Eddie has grown to appreciate and incorporate more colour in his work, whether it be for digital, motion, print, exhibition, software, branding, or a combination of them.

Join us on Vito

Best described as a combination of documentary and live Q&A, we livestream a pre-recorded video featuring talks and interviews showcasing incredible work by wonderful designers and follow up via a live link to all our speakers around the world.

This all happens through our Vito hub, an online events platform designed to give you access to the talks and engage with other guests, speakers and the team when watching live, with videos viewable on demand post show.
