CARBON festival publicity.

Melbourne, Australia.

THE BRIEF
Promote the festival including speaker interviews, side events and exhibitions.

OVERVIEW
We are proud to say that we have been part of CARBON since the very first event back in 2011. The debut event had a strong speaker line-up and bevvy of side events that formed a solid foundation upon which to build its reputation. From ACMI in 2011, to Fed Square's BMW Edge in 2012, followed by March 2013's sell-out event at RMIT's Storey Hall CARBON festival has grown exponentially in just three years.

CARBON festival is one of Australia's premier contemporary style and culture events. The festival brings together some of the world's most inspiring artists and creative entrepreneurs to speak at a series of forums.

As testament to its appeal, 40% of CARBON 2014 attendees had flown from interstate or New Zealand. The influence of this festival continues to grow and it continues to be one of our favourite annual events.

From the wisdom of Futura, to the wit of Eddie Huang and the madness of Ricky Powell, each year at CARBON provides a solid experience and new friendships. We get to work with the festival's passionate organisers and sponsors as well as  the speakers on this mighty event. With so many passionate people in one place, you would be hard-pressed to leave CARBON uninspired.
