Design Talks is back at Ayala Museum! This time around, it's Filipino designer and illustrator Dan Matutina's turn to inspire people.

Before the event started, we were handed out this really cool poster which was designed by Dan himself!

While I'm a huge fan of large conferences like Graphika Manila, Dan Matutina’s talk gives you an in-depth look at his artistic life from his childhood to the present. His talk was really inspiring because you just can’t help but see how down to earth he is despite his success in the art world locally and internationally. He talked about his humble beginnings in Tacloban and how he managed to become an artist from such a secluded environment.

Dan told us that no matter what job we get after graduation; we shouldn’t lose sight of our dream. That struck me the most and I agree to it. There’s no assurance that the first job that we’ll get is our dream job. We can always work our way up and in due time, we’ll achieve our dreams and aspirations just like him.

(For some reason, blogspot makes some of my black and white photos look sepia which is really annoying) We get to meet Dan after the talk and even got the chance to get his autograph and take a picture with him! He's one of my favorite Filipino designers/design heroes! I can't wait for the next Ayala Museum Design Talks!
