Design Assembly is a long-time supporter of Wintec School of Media Arts’ Ramp Festival – this year the event has adapted to the extraordinary times we find ourselves in with an alternative format Ramp Connects Podcasts.

The series is now live and features award-winning journalist, Aimie Cronin in conversation with creatives from the fields of music, media, arts, and design; globally and from right here in New Zealand.
These creative industry leaders share their unique journeys and uplifting stories to help recharge the incubated creative energy from this extraordinary time, replacing this year’s annual festival.
Festival director Megan Lyon says: “Thanks to Wintec and our generous sponsors whose support has enabled us to continue our work around a kaupapa that is connecting, inspiring and motivating with emerging and established creatives at its core.”
“This is a great opportunity to present a new way of connecting, with important conversations, animating connections and stimulating ideas by expanding into an online space that’s accessible to all.”

David Farrier is one of the creatives interviewed in the new Ramp Podcast series
 
The first episode of Ramp Connects is with New Zealand storyteller, David Farrier he chats with Cronin about his pathway to journalism, his belief in people, pushing through his shyness, and the importance of sticking with the story. Listeners can expect a diverse line up of interviewees representing the varied creative disciplines found within Wintec School of Media Arts, from writer Faith Wilson, to local photographer Mark Hamilton, Singapore-based designers Arthur Chin and Yah-Leng Yu and illustrator Toby Morris.
