Master Your Tools

Tools are your best friend. You should never be defined by them, but always be aware of their limitations. Nick Kumbari has spent his entire life playing around with various tools of creative expression leading him to change a few professions - from troubled youth to vocalist in an industrial metal band to one of the most acclaimed art directors. While his work in graphic design and digital craft has earned a lot of attention worldwide, his primary weapons have remained quite humble, sometimes even primitive. Finally, he’s ready to spill his secrets, dissect his favorite tools, and conduct a practical workshop right before your eyes. Guided by Nick, every participant will have a mission to accomplish - use your favorite tools to create a poster for Vilnius, an open invitation for the entire world. Final works will be exhibited in the conference area and celebrated on our Instagram page. Are you up for the challenge?
