Festival Spin Off at designforum Vorarlberg
In 2017 Forward establishes its first Spin Off in the West of Austria: At designforum Vorarlberg top creatives from various branches provide insights into their work and creative approaches on Friday, April 21st. Moreover several talks can be seen via live stream from Forward Festival Vienna and an after party with drinks and DJ sets will round off the evening – and all that for free.
Forward speakers are Florian Kaps, saviour of polaroids and the man behind Supersense and The Impossible Project, Jakob Tripolt, who together with his brother founded the successful online platform Design made in Austria, as well as Birgit Vollmeier and Yudi Warsosumarto, CEOs from the multidisciplinary communication agency PEACH.
One of the rules at PEACH is that there are no rules. Birgit Vollmeier (CEO/Creative Director) and Yudi Warsosumarto (CEO/Art Director) believe in hard work in a playful environment but do not apply any formula for successful work. This is especially important as they try to work on individual solutions for each client and their needs. What will be heard at the at the designforum is not an instruction but more a guideline of how and where to find ideas, where failure is an option and perfection is the destruction of constant improvement.
