Your May 26th Speaker Line-up

Loryn Engelsman – Freelancer

Loryn Engelsman is a Hamilton-based designer-illustrator. Her work is colourful and playful with a portfolio of projects that span across branding, editorial, products, murals, packaging and event graphics for national and international clients. 

She is passionate about the intersection of illustration and design and how they can be used together to tell stories, build stronger brands and connect people.

Oriel Davis-Lyons - Creative Director, Spotify | Founder of ONE School

Oriel Davis-Lyons used to be a chef. But, after getting tired of the long hours and intense pressure he decided to get into advertising. He started his career in New Zealand at Colenso BBDO and in 2015 made the move to New York where he worked at R/GA and Droga5 before joining Spotify.  

He has won over 100 awards across every major show and his work often uses a non-traditional approach to highlight social issues, like creating a partnership between Amnesty International and AdBlock to protest online censorship or a campaign to put graphic warning labels on boxes of ammunition.

He is also the founder and head of ONE School, a free, online portfolio program for Black creatives and an attempt to address systemic barriers to entry in the advertising industry. He lives in Upstate New York with family.
