Quatre Mains Breakfast'ival

Welcome to the middle of nowhere ;)

As a way of celebrating the love-connection we have with our clients and a tribute to their trust and loyalty, we organized an inspirational breakfast festival or should we say ‘Breakfast’ival’, to bring us all together. With an exclusive 80 ticket limited capacity, the festival was sold-out in a blink of an eye. And never wishing to do anything by halves, we took this opportunity to make a real event of this occasion by inviting industry expert speakers of international renown to catapult our breakfast get-together into a real festival experience.

Fasten your face-masks and get ready for a new take off!

This abnormal period is working hard to also profoundly influence packaging design trends. No more excuses as the focus is now even more on the theme of sustainability and on consumer safety concerns. Now that e-commerce is also peaking, it's a pertinent question as to whether packaging design is a future-proof, direct-to-consumer model. In other words, these three mega developments are causing a small landslide that makes a big contribution to shaping the “new standard” of packaging.

From Good to Great

On the 1st of December 2017, Quatre Mains participated in a Luca School of Arts learning session, together with the next generation of budding new designers. Several speakers shared their personal insights regarding various topics across graphic, digital, advertising, brand & packaging design. Our very own Patrick De Grande shared his thoughts about what ultimately, brand & packaging design can do for you, your brand and the product. Additionally, how it’s possible to bridge the gap between design work that is considered ‘good’ to work that you can proudly call ‘great’.

Below is a short summary of the presentation.
