Bren Imboden & Luis Viale
Makebardo is a creative design studio based in Queenstown, New Zealand, where minimal is a key word in their daily design practice.
Creative Director Luis Viale and Design Director Bren Imboden have worked in South America, Europe and Australia, giving them the perfect mix of cultures to meld into a unique aesthetic for visual communication.
From cider packaging based on a childhood photograph, to a bronze award in the 2016 Best Design Awards for beer packaging that breaks gender stereotypes; space design to advertising and editorial; signage, web design and illustration – these two have done it all.
Luis and Bren will be presenting the ‘kitchen’ of their creative process and will be talking about concept and experimentation, which is at the core of their work.
