Success?

Part typographic masterclass and part career retrospective, Elliot takes us on a lighthearted journey through nearly two decades of client projects and side projects, covering the highs and lows of life as a jobbing freelance designer, as a Creative Director in big tech, and as the owner of an independent publishing business — all tied together by a deep love for typography, more than a little music, and a desire to share the secrets he’s learned with others. Exploring how notions of success — or rather, creative fulfilment — can be found outside the usual financial metrics, Elliot outlines the path that led him to his recent collaboration with Google to create Google Fonts Knowledge: an ambitious typographic resource for all.

A Million One Dollar Ideas

Some pragmatic tools to deal with ideas on a daily basis. Where to find them, how to treat them politely, how to multiply and transform them and what to do, when they misbehave and lead absolutely nowhere.

The Joy of Vulnerability

Your career can take you so many places - and many of those places would not be where you original sought out to go originally. The uncertainty of life in general can be tedious and anxiety inducing. Add in to that a career that isn’t going exactly as planned, and everything can seem overwhelming and discouraging. But having an open mind and being vulnerable can be one of your biggest benefits during a tumultuous time. This talks explores the joy of vulnerability at work and in life. Sharon will talk about how being vulnerable changed the trajectory of her life and career; explore the benefits (and drawbacks) of being more open; and discuss how vulnerability and empathy are interconnected in the search for meaningful work.
