Out The Box is a quarterly event where talented graphic designers are asked to improvise inspired by objects taken out of a box. The speakers don’t have a clue about what's inside. This exposes the speakers and presents them in an unpredictable, unscripted and unrehearsed manner. So far Eike König, Deutsche Japaner, Mario Lombardo, Andreas Uebele, Peter Zizka, Willem Stratmann, On No Oh Yes and Trapped in Suburbia visited us at Out The Box.
