Creative Talks with Simon Hipgrave

22 September 2015 | Posted in: News


Renew Newcastle, in association with The Lock-Up, is excited to announce that Simon Hipgrave will join us for Creative Talks on Friday 02 October 2015.


Simon Hipgrave founded The Hungry Workshop, a combined design and letterpress studio in Melbourne. Their offering of design and letterpress means they’re communicators that understand production, and printmakers that understand communication. Both areas positively impact and influence each other, bringing a deeper understanding of their clients’ objectives to whichever task we apply our skills to.

The Hungry Workshop’s focus on the craft of design and their creative approach to letterpress printing gives their work a unique aesthetic. All of which is underpinned by unwavering attention to detail, combined with strategic thinking.

Taking place on a Friday morning each month a well-regarded creative will be invited to speak for 20 minutes about the lessons they have learned growing their creativity into a commercial success. This is followed by an audience Q&A and the opportunity to mingle with local creatives from a wide range of backgrounds, over a stand-up breakfast.

Meet, greet and eat at Creative Talks.

Creative Talks is kindly hosted by The Lock-Up.

Breakfast is generously sponsored by The Newcastle Herald.
