I have kept my eye on the creatives of the Baltic States – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – as design there has the same Nordic feeling as there is in the Scandinavian countries.
Apparently the interest has been mutual, as I was invited to Latvia for giving a speech for local creatives. In the end one session turned into three, and I’ll be really happy to meet the best exporting brands of Latvia, potential Creative Business Cup participants as well as companies at the Creative Industries Business Incubator.
Last time I was in Riga was on a sailing ship during the Tall Ships Races 2013. Back then there was a huge audience checking out the ships – let’s see if the audience in the creatives’ events will be similar at all.
