Hunting the Killer Idea by Nick McFarlane.
Nick has two lives. One as Design Director for Raydar / Proximity New Zealand, where he builds brand identities for clients and brings them to life through ad campaigns and activations. The other is as a Graphic Agitator – where he burns the midnight oil on a range of projects that allow for a story to be told through any medium – be it a book, brand or bottle of rum! He’s exhibited art from the UK to L.A. to NZ, and designed The Prodigy’s No.1 selling album-cover artwork. In his very engaging session, Nick takes us on a rugged journey through the creative process, retracing his steps, the highs, lows and lessons learnt the hard way, are woven together into an epic hunting yarn, that will shock and surprise at every twist along the way.
