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.

Our goal is to bring creatives together, inspire, motivate & connect in an informal setting.

Let’s Talk Design is an initiative of Creative Network.

Thierry Brunfaut Base

Don’t design for designers. Design for people.
Coming from a family of architects, Thierry brings to Base a creativity grounded in common sense. Following a two-year stint as a graphic designer in Spain, Thierry co-founded Base in 1996 with his friends Juliette Cavenaile, Dimitri Jeurissen, Marc Panero and Geoff Cook. Though leading BaseBrussels, Thierry today oversees all important strategic and conceptual issues within Base, and is in constant contact with the studios in New York and Geneva. To projects ranging from visual identities to ad campaigns, Thierry imparts a philosophy of graphic and conceptual simplicity that emphasizes concise communication. Thierry believes in the power of creative autonomy mixed with teamwork and pleasure. Thierry bears a striking and seemingly contradictory resemblance both to Moby and Kermit the Frog.
Base is an international network of studios led by creatives. Base is about people, simplicity and common sense.

Stephanie Specht

Stephanie Specht is a freelance graphic designer from Antwerp. Her style is best described as intuitive, abstract, typographic and minimalistic, typified by an almost analytical fragmentation of shapes, in combination with an intense color palette, drawing inspiration from architecture and music.

After graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp (Graphic Design - 2000-04), Stephanie started freelancing with a focus on brand identity, illustration and book designs. Having lived and worked pretty much everywhere in her 10-year career (Cape Town, Brussels, Princeton, New York, Antwerp), every single one of these experiences shaped her as a creative person.
