Sons & Co

9:30am – 10:30am Wednesday 24 July

Events Room 1, Gallagher Hub, Wintec

For a casual chat amongst the discussions and workshops of Ramp, head along to Sons & Co. But don’t be fooled — this presentation will still be packed full of wisdom! Sons & Co. have quietly built an international reputation from the port town of Lyttleton, making websites that are “stunning – both aesthetically and technically,” or so says Daniel Howells of Siteinspire.

The studio was founded in 2008 by Matt Arnold and Tim Kelleher who have developed a way of working that values simplicity, design, good manners and a sense of humour over everything else. As teenagers, it was a love of album covers, logos, posters and magazines that drew them to visual culture. Unspectacular school grades led naturally to careers in graphic design and, when that failed, websites. Matt and Tim will be chatting about what inspires and motivates them now: the things they love and the things they hate. It isn’t really a talk, it’s just small talk.
