About Speaker

Designer Petra Janssen has been teaching at the Design Academy Eindhoven’s Man & communication department for 15 years and has her own graphic design agency Studio Boot for more then 25 years.

In 2011 she initiated a festival called ‘Huttenfestival De Vlek’ where she built a small village together with a group of desiger-friends in the City of Tilburg (The Netherlands). This led to the birth of the Social Label Foundation. In this movement designers and workshops with people who have a distance from labour market are working together to create meaningful design products. In 2017 Social Label presented an open book on designing labour that emphasises how the future will be all about working together.
