BIGs second event for 2015 ‘GREETINGS’ will have not one but four illustrious brighton-based speakers from all sides of the industry.

Ilona Drew our very own card aficionado is the surface pattern designer and illustrator behind I Drew This, creating interesting designs which revolve around the essential human themes of love and sentiment. Key to her designs are a raw childlike honesty using spray paint, pens, pencils, collage and print mixed with digital tools.
