Open House Featuring DR.ME & Nanna Guldbæk

16 March 2018

Can you cash in and not sell out? Can you do what you love for money and yet keep your integrity intact? And can you really design a craft beer that's original anymore?

Head down to our Open House by Thompson on Friday 16 March to join the discussion, as well as enjoying a free beer and a nice time.

We’ll be joined by two awesome speakers with beer in common: graphic artists DR.ME and Danish beer designer/illustrator, Nanna Guldbæk. It's going to be good - guaranteed.

Who's up?


Say hello to this graphic artist duo based in Manchester and the French Riviera. They’re best known for their collages and art direction, not to mention doing some very nice designs for Cloudwater Brew Co. They’ll be talking about how they turned their unique graphic approach into a business, without compromising on what they believe in (and what it's like designing for Cloudwater).

Nanna Guldbæk

If you’ve recently enjoyed a beer from Lervig, Norway’s most famous beer brand, you’ll have actually held Nanna’s art in your hand. Illustrator, artist and industrial designer, Nanna was pounced on by Lervig after meeting the founders in a bar, and she hasn’t looked back since. She’ll be flying in from Denmark especially to share her story about making a living from her idiosyncratic style, which is extra nice.
