How to be Different will be given by Alessandro Taini, a graphic designer and art director at Ninja Theory.

THU is aimed at pros across CG, VFX, games and concept art. It's organisers say that the meetup is a chance for London-based artists to get into the spirit of THU before the ‘digital art rave’ main event in Portugal on the 15-19th of September.

The two 30-min talks will be held on Candy Crush game developer King’s rooftop terrace from 6pm to 9pm on July 24.
