Astrid Stavro joins the speaker line up for Here 2017

We are excited to announce that graphic designer Astrid Stavro has joined the speaker line up for Here 2017. Trieste-born Astrid is creative director at Atlas and, prior to this, founded the award winning Astrid Stavro Studio in Barcelona. Her work is typified by idea-driven graphic design that manifests itself with an exquisite typographic sensibility.

Astrid’s portfolio includes books, magazines, brand identities, printed matter, exhibition design, signage, way-finding systems and packaging for an enviable list of clients such as Wallpaper, Eye, Phaidon and Thames&Hudson. She is design director and editor-at-large of Elephant magazine. Earlier this year, Astrid collaborated with It’s Nice That on our Local Characters project, which saw her create a bespoke typeface inspired by the juxtapositions she saw in her hometown.

We look forward to welcoming her, and you, on the 9 June in London.

Alongside Astrid, this year’s speakers include fashion designer Christopher Raeburn, artist Ryan Gander, photographer Juno Calypso, graphic design agency Triboro, Graphic artist James Jarvis, art director and photographer Carlota Guerrero and artist (and one of It’s Nice That’s Ones to Watch 2017) Marguerite Humeau. More speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.

Alongside the talks, we are lining up activities throughout the day that will offer you the chance to flex your creative muscles and engage with our speakers and sponsors. We will also provide a delicious lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
