This years DA Conversations are back in Christchurch with two local creatives sharing their stories. In the lead up to next weeks event lets meet the speakers!
Kate Darby — Co-Founder at Dovetail X
Kate Darby is the Co-Founder at Dovetail X; Design Studio Facilitator at Ara Institute of Canterbury; Design Partner Darby.pro; Host of The Design Kids TDKTuesdays Christchurch; AND part of the wining team for the Adobe Christchurch Creative Jam 2017!
Kate will be taking about User Experience (UX) from a design perspective. She believes that designing with a user-centred focus, identifying problems, and letting that inform the solution and medium are important steps in her process. Living and travelling around the world has also given her a passion for seeking new experiences which she loves bringing all these together to create rich, playful and thoughtful creations.
Rachel Larsen (USA) — Animator
With vast experience in feature film stop-motion animation (Coraline, Paranorman, Isle of Dogs, Lead Animator on Anomalisa), Rachel also has unparalleled credentials in animation for children’s television: she was the Animation Director for Amazon’s Tumble Leaf, and in that role she set the style for the multi-award winning show.
