Creative Mornings Utrecht

Those of you that are living abroad, will probably already have heard of Creative Mornings, a concept that was put out there by the ever inventive SwissMiss, Tina Roth Eisenberg:


Creative Mornings is a global breakfast lecture series for creative types. Each monthly event is free of charge and includes a 20 minute talk, plus coffee!”


Finally they came to the Netherlands and, very happily ever after for me, they landed in Utrecht! Among other designers they asked me to deliver some (breakfast themed) designs for little magnets to fill their goody bags with. As I am all for free sharing, I was happy to oblige.


Below the designs I made for them.

My personal favorite was chosen: can you guess which one?

Do you have a question or a problem you can’t seem to solve? Please feel welcome, we work at solutions together!

There will also be the possibility of intervision. Do you get stuck at a certain technique, are you not progressing in the development of a concept, do you need to brainstorm on a vague plan that you have been walking around with for some time, or do you just want feedback on your work? Take your questions with you!

Sign up via this link (or just drop me an e-mail).
It could be possible that you have to like the DDIY Facebook businesspage first, before you can sign up for an event.


DDIY Open Studio Utrecht is held every Third Thursday of the month.

The program of an evening Don’t Do It Yourself Open Studio Utrecht is as follows:

18.00-19.00: entry, eating together
19.00-19.30: inventory of questions, introduction of theme, dividing into groups
Then: work!


See you November 22nd! As always, your host is already excited!
