Hive61 #9 – Bradford Shellhammer – 30.06.2014
Hive #9 will be hosted by Bradford Shellhammer – a great designer and serial entrepreneur known mostly through Fab.com
– an e-commerce platform, which evolved from a gay social network to the coolest online design & fashion store, evaluated at $ 1bln. Bradford, serving both as Founder and Chief Design Officer, contributed to Fab’s achievement of getting 1mln of users faster than Facebook or Twitter!
Fab’s fast and spectacular success brought equally spectacular U-turn. However, it didn’t stop Bradford from engaging in other innovative projects. Named by Fast Company one of the ‘100 Most Creative People in Business’, and the ‘King of Quirk’ by Forbes Magazine, he is an explosion of ideas. It comes as no surprise, that so many companies ask for his creative direction and consultation for branding. Most recently, he’s been approved as the Creative Director of SuperPier NY – a novel fashion concept revolutionizing retail.
Bradford is not coming to Poznan by accident. He is in fact the curator of the 8th Art & Fashion Forum powered by Grażyna Kulczyk and organized by Stary Browar. Bridging fashion and technology like no one else, he became an icon of his field and a natural choice for A&FF. Bradford’s appearance will officially launch this years’s edition of the Forum. During his talk, Bradford will share with us some insights into his exciting career path and inspiring ideas for creative businesses.
