Running throughout September, the Brighton Digital Festival 2013 will see a wealth of conferences, exhibitions, hackathons and more based around sbujects from graphic and web design to games, making and digital fine art.
At its heart are three key conferences: Reasons to be Creative, dConstruct and Improving Reality – while a large number of smaller events are taking place in halls, offices, bars and even in squares and on walls throughout the town.
Reasons to be Creative
Reasons to be Creative is the key event for Digital Arts readers. Previously known as Flash on the Beach, the conference brings together graphic and interactive designers, illustrators, coders, animators and filmmakers.
Speakers this year include potty-mouthed drawer Mr Bingo, arch-doodler Jon Burgerman (right, top at Flash on the Beach on 2011), interactive experience designers Hellcar and Lewis, serial nudist Stefan Sagmeister, senior designer at Google and long-term Digital Arts contributor Fabio Sasso (right, bottom right), and type guru Erik Spiekermann (right, bottom left).
Other familiar faces to regular Digital Arts readers appearing include Geri Coady and Elliot Jay Stocks.
Reasons to be Creative runs from September 2-4 at the Brighton Dome. Tickets cost £299. Stefan, This is Responsive's Brad Frost and Hellicar & Lewis are also running workshops on Sep 1, though Stefans is already sold out.
