Quotes:

“Pitching is both a blessing and a curse for millions of creative professionals. Some swear it’s the most exhilarating part of their day, but for many, pitching has escalated into an expensive and unsustainable creative war. We launched SFNY to celebrate exceptional pitch art, but also to start the long overdue conversation about the problems with the current creative pitch process.

“The STYLE FRAMES speaker line up showcases a range of design and advertising’s most successful and experienced talent from both the client and creative sides. Studios, directors, broadcasters and ad agencies will all be sharing pitch strategies, revealing exceptional pitch art and discussing ways to improve the pitch process.”
Stephen Price, Editor of Stash Media, Founder and Presenter of SFNY

“Pitching is a unique time when my passions, fascinations and curiosities are brought to bear with little to no filter. Imagine an entire conference devoted to pitching, wow!”
Justin Leibow, Partner and Executive Creative Director of Superfad, Los Angeles

"I'm really looking forward to discussing how the existing paradigm for pitching is changing, and hos might help others alter the perception that they need to scramble just to win, rather than taking aw our own process at HUSH is allowing us to dictate the terms of this change. It's exciting to consider how thi thoughtful approach to the specific project."
Jodi Terwilliger, Creative Director at Hush

“Pitching can be fun but also very hard and frustrating. In many cases it's a necessary process but sometimes it could be avoided or improved. Style Frames NY is a great opportunity to compare the experiences and opinions from top talents in different industries.”
Riccardo Giraldi, Creative Director at B-Reel

"The topic of pitching is what everyone keeps thinking about in our industry. It was about time someone started this discussion on the big stage."
Mate Steinforth, Director at Sehsucht, Berlin

“I'm excited to participate in this year's STYLE FRAMES conference. Having worked on both the vendor and client side, I feel I can talk a lot on the topic of pitching… and I mean A LOT."
Amanda Havey, VP On-air Creative at VH1
