Langara Creative Arts sponsors February's CreativeMornings

Vancouver, BC – Four of Langara's Creative Arts programs, Publishing, Design Formation, Professional Photo-Imaging, and Fine Arts, are jointly sponsoring this month's CreativeMornings Vancouver event. This is the fourth time Langara has sponsored this popular local series. This month's theme is 'rebel' and the featured speaker is Carson Ting, a renowned creative director and illustrator.

CreativeMornings is a monthly breakfast lecture series for people interested in creative industries. The free event began in New York city but now counts chapters in Zurich, London, Berlin, Stockholm, Auckland, Milan, and Budapest among its ranks. Speakers who have appeared at the Vancouver section include Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield, communications and cultural strategist Amanda Gibbs, and Juno Award-winning musician Bif Naked. Each event is free of charge and includes an inspiring presentation, a hot breakfast, and great company. Tickets are allocated on a lottery system during the week of the event.

Carson was born and raised in Toronto, but has called Vancouver home for the past six years. After graduating with a Bachelors in Design from OCAD, he entered the world of advertising as an art director and has since developed award-winning campaigns for everything from cars, to TV’s, to basketball shoes, to burgers. He currently holds the title of Creative Director and Illustrator at Chairman Ting Industries, an experimental creative studio he co-founded with his wife. Since opening their studio, they have worked for the likes of adidas originals, The Cartoon Network, Microsoft, Kidrobot, IdN magazine, The Canadian Tourism Commission and more. Carson has been named as one of the top 200 illustrators in the world by Luerzer’s Archive magazine, and voted as one of the top five most creative people in Canada by Marketing Magazine.
