Onstage at OFFF Cincy

Signalnoise speaking

In order to reach our goals in the upside-down world of graphic design, you need to be a rogue. A misfit. A renegade. James White from the Signalnoise Studio has based his career on doing things outside of the ordinary, turning his back on boardrooms and creative briefs in order to chase his design dreams with vengeance and rock n’ roll. He will be telling his story while discussing personal projects built from love and ambition in his small home office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. These led to him working with respected people all over the world, from his favourite metal band to film juggernaut Kevin Smith. James will talk about chasing your creative path, building your personal body of work, the value of supporting friends, and never forgetting the artist inside.

If you are an instructor or student interested in arranging a Signalnoise Talk at your school or the organizer of a design event or conference, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will go anywhere that will have me! Want to bring me to speak in your area? Lets talk!
