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.

One more speaker will be added soon!

Kidnap Your Designer graphic design studio

Kidnap Your Designer is the name of a Belgian graphic design studio started in 2006 by Caroline Dath, a graduate of Saint-Luc Liège and ERG. Damien Safie, a classmate from ERG, joined her in 2008 as partner.
The studio, based in Brussels, produces creative works using typography and printing techniques for clients from the music, theatre, cinema, design or architecture fields. Kidnap Your Designer also creates experimental and self-produced projects ('It's Better Here', 'Note' exhibitions, postcards, poster or T-shirts…).
Graphic design should not exist without ideas.
When sense makes graphic-design then design-graphic makes sense.

Over the last few years Ken had a leading role in the rebrand of VRT NWS, working on the brand’s strategy and design language, leading a creative team of directors and designers and creating fresh digital concepts and content formats.
‘In times of fake news and distrust towards media, I want our brand to be visible, especially on social media. I want people to instantly recognise our design language and think: this is reliable, accessible content made by experts.’
