- Hamburg / designxport Hamburg / Main Stage
This talk is an examination of the hive mind belonging to a 20 year veteran of the creative lifestyle. This presentation isn’t a portfolio deep dive – there’s a nice website for that at gmunk.com.
Instead, this presentation is more like a therapy session revealing the Jedi Mind tricks used to stay fresh and inspired, task oriented and the extreme measures taken for maximum time management.
Lastly, this presentation will be an extremely thorough investigation into the psychedelic aesthetic used by the Munky throughout the years and how to stay true to your creative voice via awareness through your subconscious — i.e. harnessing that vibration that defines your output.
This will be a uniquely honest purge of all things GMUNK – and a brand new talk to boot so should be a refreshing evolution.
GMUNK is a visionary whose creativity and innovation span a diverse range of mediums, and has established himself as one of the top visual design directors in the world. Utilizing a fusion of psychedelic themes and richly textured palettes, his signature style is enigmatic, atmospheric, and metaphysical – much like the Munky himself. His ethos is driven by his desire to learn and be uncomfortable. He continuously seeks to apply his foundation in design to new mediums, with new collaborators. He finds no greater joy than joining forces with the people he adores to discover what their combined talents can yield. The results of these labors often take beautiful and unexpected forms as short films, installations, music videos, commercials, fine art exhibitions, title sequences and various applications of motion design. His work often centers around themes of identity, the subconscious, and our human connection to technology.
