Design is Kinky is proud to announce the launch of the SEMI-PERMANENT Design Conference, the first event in what will hopefully become a series of conferences world-wide. We have invited over 20 talented international and Australian individuals from various creative fields such as, Graphic Design, Web Design, Broadcast, Illustration, Film Making and Graffiti to speak at the event. With this diverse range of creative talent on hand we believe that no matter what level of designer you are, from student to creative director, you will benefit from the insight and experience of each speaker.

In conjunction with the main conference, the SEMI-PERMANENT Graffiti & Street Art Exhibition will be held at a gallery nearby (to be announced). We have currently confirmed six talented artists (including internationally renowned Shepard Fairey and Banksy) to participate in the exhibition.

Guest speakers: Matt Owens & Lee Misenheimer (USA), Deanne Cheuk (Australia), Nicola Stumpo (Italy), The Revolution (Australia), Nando Costa (Brazil), Josh & Jon Baker (Australia), James Paterson & Amit Pitaru (Canada/Israel), Rinzen (Australia), Toke Nygaard & Michael Schmidt (Denmark), Australian Infront (Australia), Scien & Klor (France), Animal Logic(Australia).
