Ful of design trends, news, events,
portfolios, articles, advice, photography,
fashion, advertising, videos, interior and
exterior design, architecture and young
bloods from across the globe. VK serves
to inspire, encourage and connect our
audience to wider horizons that they may
not be able to access themselves.
The contributors of VK are just fledgling
and practising designers, photographers,
artists and architects from around the
world. Some of us are stil students,
struggling with the pressure of studying
ful -time, working that part-time job four
days a week and keeping creative’s block
at bay al the while trying to churn out the
best work we can.
We are our own audience. We seek out
what ever we can get our hands on to,
whether it be an interview with a prolific
Creative Director, a music video with an
interesting edge, a student’s portfolio that
we think has potential or even a photo of
something absurd we took on the way to
work; Anything that can ultimately deliver
high standards of creativity, inspiration
and visual imagery so that your day can
be that much brighter.

The creative market is a competitive
environment, but that doesn’t mean
we can’t share what we know. Like the
VK blog, this information should be as
assessable as possible.
Our mission at VK is to host our own
conference, acting as the contact between
the industry and the public, mainly focusing
on students and young designers. We need
this to be as affordable and open to as many
as possible. We seek to inspire, educate and
instil passion with both local and international
speakers. We want to create something fresh,
exciting and informative that connects all
sorts of creatives together
And Visual Kontakt wil be just that. Your
contact, your middleman and your open
window to what the creative world has
to offer you.
If this feels like something you can get
on-board with, we would love your support.
Whether it’s as involved as offering supplies,
contributions, marketing strategies or
sponsorships or just some advice over the
phone, an email with moral support or even a
link on your site spreading the word, it would
be gladly received.
Thank you so much for your time,
and we hope to hear from you.
The team at Visual Kontakt.
