Budding Brisbane designers, photographers, film-makers, illustrators and general art groupies take note: the annual Semi Permanent Design Conference is now on it’s way north, from Sydney to Brisbane. Whilst you will have to wait till the 4th of June, there is now word of the first announcement of speakers to be gracing your shores.

There is Stephen Dupont, the International photojournalist, graphic design studio Toben, photographer and digital artist, Alexia Sinclair, design and 3d animation company Iloura, and fellow Sydney Semi Permanent speakers, Frankie Magazine.There are also three other mystery speakers yet to be announced. If it’s anything like the Sydney conference held a few weeks ago, then Brisbane, I suggest you grab some tickets early.
