Zee Avi speaks at Noise Talks

As the highly successful Noise Festival draws to a close, don’t miss this last major highlight which features talks given by three renowned industry personalities in this one-day-only event.

The event is anchored by three stellar speakers, each talking about their unique experiences on how they achieved success in their industries by chasing their passions.

Zee Avi, Rob Campbell and Kelley Cheng will share their personal stories that might motivate and inspire you to rethink what being creative means.

Malaysian singer-songwriter Zee Avi needs little introduction, having skyrocketed to fame after being discovered via a video on YouTube. Having recorded her debut album in Los Angeles, Avi’s unique, deeply soulful voice, combined with her bittersweet lyrics contrasted against seemingly light melodies, has made her an overnight sensation. By the way, she’s only 24.

Don’t miss her interactive session “From KL to LA: Confessions of a 21st century musician” – where she engages in a Q and A session with the audience and promises a special acoustic performance to close.

Ever been told to manage your expectations? Publishing veteran Kelley Cheng talks about how she is able to juggle multiple hats in her session titled “Well (Meaning) Design”.

A three-time SOPA (Society of Publishers in Asia) Award Editor/Creative Director, Cheng recently set up The Press Room, a publishing and design consultancy, after an 8-year stint as the Editorial/Creative Director of Page One Publishing.

She’s also the Editor-in-Chief of Singapore Architect, owner of Night & Day and 15 Minutes and a regular design competition judge, amongst many other roles – find out insights into her process and philosophy in publishing and design, as well as the different projects she’s completed in the past year.

In another life, Rob Campbell was a session guitarist for “some of the worst popstars of the 1980s”. Thank goodness he quickly switched to entering adland, rising quickly through its ranks to now being Managing Partner/Creative Strategist for Sunshine/M&C Saatchi [Asia].

Having worked with international brands such as Virgin, Mother, IKEA, Mini and Apple, Rob’s “Nothing Great Happens If You Follow The Rules” seminar will speak about how Asian creativity comes in many shapes, sizes and skills and how to best understand it in order to change your world.
