Our speaker at the January 2010 CreativeMornings ( http://creativemornings.com ) was Michael Bierut of Pentagram hosted at the fabulous Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn. It was our biggest CreativeMornings audience yet with 300 (!) NYC creatives attending. It's a brand new talk on the subject of "Clients". A big giant thank you to Roland Lazarte ( http://hellorolo.com/ ) who once again has been generously offering his video and editing skills.

Francesco Franchi is the art director for IL-Intelligence in Lifestyle, the monthly magazine of Il Sole 24 ORE, Italy’s leading financial daily. "Embracing new languages in journalism," Franchi is a true master of combining representation and interpretation, creating a visual form that is as graphic as it is narrative, as entertaining as it is informative. His work has been awarded on numerous occasions, including the European Design Awards and at the renowned Malofiej conference. Gestalten.tv met with him last summer in Berlin to talk about his influences, innovative storytelling and non-linear reading in today's editorial design. Furthermore you will find an extensive printed interview with the Italian designer in "Visual Storytelling: Inspiring a New Visual Language".
