San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Our next CS Presents is all about being different and how it's fundamental to true creativity, and consequently advertising.
But what is ‘different’?
Is it being the odd one out or ticking other?
How does background and culture affect how ‘different’ you are and how ‘differently’ you deal with life, work and creativity?
Are ‘different’ and ‘creative’ mutually linked?
What does it mean when agencies work ‘differently? How does it translate into creativity and does it foster a desired culture?
When you’re the 1% and not the 99% it’s a good thing right?
We have gathered 5 brilliant and unique individuals who will give us insight and perspective into what it means to be different.
Some observational, others personal, they will share a colourful mix of stories and experiences that will leave you feeling truly inspired. You will be taken on a journey that covers success through adversity, crosses continents and cultures and even into the very personal space of live performance art.
So grab your seat now, it would be a shame not to!
Danny Augustine, @rocketdanny, Artist
Danny, a celebrated American artist, currently based in Shoreditch creates art intuitively focusing on feelings, thoughts and emotions to create textural environments using color, line and space.

Twitter: Your live connection to culture
Special thanks to our venue partners DigitasLBi for providing us with 'The home of Creative Social Presents..' a top notch venue for creative thinking.
Please note: This event is for agency folk and students only
AN IMPORTANT NOTE FOR WHEELCHAIR USERS AND THOSE WITH REDUCED MOBILITY
Because of the age and design of the DigitasLBi building (a former brewery), we are unable to accommodate wheelchair users at our events. The escape routes from our basement are all vertical and require a level physical mobility when used in the event of a fire or other emergency.
In the event of an emergency, we are able to provide those people with ambulant mobility with assisted escape from one of the building’s emergency response team. However, where a person is a wheelchair user with no mobility, an effective and safe evacuation is not possible.
We would ask those with reduced mobility to contact us ahead of any events to ensure that we have the correct assistance in place in case of an emergency.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
