The idea is simple. To connect with the creative world. This is our main goal. To create events that will make people get inspired by the design industry. Especially by the people mastering their vision. It's also an opportunity for you to learn from the people of the industry. It's their gift to us. It's our legacy!
Connect. Inspire. Learn.
François Hoang / The FounderGet Involved with MMTWO
My name's François Hoang and my alias's Aoiro Studio. I am a self-taught freelance graphic designer from Montreal, Canada. I've been designing for the last 4 years and really have a huge passion for creative work that makes a difference in our world.
I am currently working as a freelancer with private clients on different commercial projects. I can be found on Twitter , Facebook and Behance, as well also on my online portfolio on AoiroStudio.com.
Many of you asked a lot of questions about Montreal Meets and MMTWO. So this is a round-up of some questions I came across and I will do the best I can to answer them!
Where did you get the idea for doing the Montreal Meets?
Being a designer for more than 4 years now, I've always wanted to meet the designers that changed and inspired my career. Also being a fan of big design events like FITC for example, I've always wondered if we had the same kind of event in Montreal. Everything combined, the idea of doing the Montreal Meets came to me.
What are you doing with the money from the tickets, the sponsors and the backers?
First of all, the Montreal Meets is a non-profit event. I am doing this just for the design community and as I said before my goal is to give our attendees a chance to meet intimately the great designers of our industry. On the other hand, all the money goes to the venue, flights, hotels, printing costs, advertising and a lot more.
For MMTWO, why aren't the female designers represented in the speakers line-up?
I would say that is pure coincidence! I didn't realize it until I starting reading the comments from various articles on MMTWO. I had in mind a few very skilled female designers in mind for MMTWO but they all turned me down, which is pretty understandable in most cases. Hopefully next year, we'll have that little issue resolved!
For MMTWO, is there going to be a stream online like the first MM?
With the first MM, we change the way about how people feel on design events by streaming live and online all the talks directly through your computer, mobile or else. For MMTWO, I guarantee there will be a stream and I will work harder to make a viewable experience for all the people around the world.
