About

Let’s Talk Design is a one evening conference (held multiple times a year) on the subject of Design & Creativity.

Let's Talk Design is a series of evenings with speakers from the creative sector talking about their work. At our events we let established creatives talk about their work next to young & upcoming talent.

Interested in organising your own Let's Talk Design event in your city? Get in touch!

We bring creatives together to inspire, motivate & connect with them in an informal setting.

More speakers will be added soon!

Milk and cookies

"Tim Siaens and Stijn Pauwels originally established Milk and cookies as a graphic design studio with a big heart for digital in 2003.
Their close associations with the music, fashion and art worlds have led to their becoming distinctive and acclaimed creative voices, within graphic design, digital and beyond" (telegraph.co.uk).

"They tend to have a different view on the matter and a well evolved radar for the anti-fake. And that’s exactly the outcome of their work: real, pure, raw and o-so right". While print, drawing, photography, typography and an unconventional approach to all of these aspects lies at the heart of milk's work, they have also produced films, objects and interiors.

"Expressing the idea of a dialogue, that's what it's all about. We like transferring elements from fashion to music to art and back again, and keep using different mediums" they explain.
