Brand new design & creativity festival Us by Night will change the way you think about design events
Last year renowned 3D designer Rizon Parein brought design festival OFFF to Belgium in a magical “night version”. The combination of the bustling nightmarket and over 40 international inspiring speakers in an industrial venue covered in a neon glow provided a fantastic energy!
This november (23, 24 and 25) Antwerp will set the stage once more for the international mecca for design and creativity, bigger, better, faster, stronger! More video, arcade games, table tennis, (art)-interventions and 60 speakers spread over three stages. Want to hear talks from one of the founders of the much hyped Adidas’s secret Brooklyn Creator Farm or Major Lazer’s favourite graphic designer? Then grab yourself a ticket for Us by Night!
Curated for the hungry!
The first edition was a massive hit! Magazine Computer Arts did not beat around the bush: “We’ve been to our fair share of design events here at Computer Arts, but none quite like this.”
Curator Rizon Parein can’t wait for the second edition: “We got such enthusiastic feedback about the By Night concept, that we knew we had tapped into something big. From this year, we are setting the bar even higher under the name Us by Night!”
At the end of November, you can once again enjoy the crème de la crème of the design world in Antwerp for three nights. Over 60 top names will discuss the latest trends in graphic design, illustration, photography, film, motion design, sound design and more in inspirational keynotes.
And that’s not all! Besides keynotes, there is also a vibrant night market with arcade games, table tennis, demos, tattoo shops, installations, live paintings, surprising live acts, book stalls and an array of food stalls featuring the best local street food! In addition, Us by Night will once again put young design studios and creative entrepreneurs in the spotlight with the Living Room stage. Last but not least, this year Us by Night throws in a third stage, the Tutorial Stage in collaboration with Adobe and Maxon Cinema 4D. Tutorials by no one less than Simon Holmedal, The Mill London, DIA, Aixsponza, and more.
“We want to set the trend for design lovers and professionals, inspire & motivate creatives, and maybe the most important of all create an environment that makes it easy and fun to connect with each other. The community is what it is all about!” says Rizon.
