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.

Claire ParkerDesign Bridge

Claire is Executive Creative Director of Design Bridge Amsterdam where she has been a driving force behind the creative growth of the Amsterdam studio; seeing them develop lasting relationship with international brands as well as acquire a wealth of international awards.
A self-confessed human magpie, she is unable to leave an interesting object or topic alone, inevitably that makes for lots of collections of lovely shiny things and a mind full of eclectic ideas. With over 20 years of experience in brand design, across multiple disciplines and countries, Claire studied in the UK at the University of Central Lancashire before her career took her from London around the world; working in Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Claire is a staunch believer that a healthy dose of intuition and intelligence can bring brands to life through their unique story. Oh and she smiles quite a lot too.
Despite so many years away from the UK she’s still considers herself ‘a northern lass’ at heart – as her accent is testament to.
