2016 Brand Nieuwe Conference, Amsterdam

Posted: April 11th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: Blog, Resources For Designers | Tags: , , , , | Comments Off on 2016 Brand Nieuwe Conference, Amsterdam

Brand Nieuwe Conference, Amsterdam

Brand New, a division of UnderConsideration, is one of the first and foremost design blogs to offer opinion on corporate and brand identity work. It has amassed a huge following, is often quoted by international press, and provokes frequent and heated debated. Complimenting the blog is an annual conference that draws speakers and designers to the U.S. from across the globe.

This year, a European two-day event has been added to the line-up, and will take place between the 20th and 21st of June in the city of Amsterdam. This will be the first time Brand New has held an event outside of the U.S. and is great opportunity to hear from some well-respected designers.

Total Design legend Ben Bos, Brian Collins of Collins, Marko Salonen of Bond and Pablo Juncadella of Mucho will be speaking at the event. There are plenty more so be sure to check out the full listings here.

Buy Brand Nieuwe Conference tickets here, use BNCBPO for a 15% discount

I am delighted to partner with Brand Nieuwe Conference as a media sponsor, through BP&O, and to be able to offer a 15% discount off regular ticket prices. This can be redeemed using the promo code BNCBPO at the second step of purchase, rather than at checkout. Early bird ticket pricing will end this week on April 15th. I will be attending the event and hope that readers will also be able to make it.
