TEDx Navesink

Program design and sponsorship for TEDx


Hagopian Ink is a proud partner and sponsor of 2017 TEDx Navesink IDENTITY Conference! Please join us Saturday, May 20th in Asbury Park, NJ for a day of live talks and entertainment on the stories that make us who we are.

We are sponsoring Rob Van Varick’s talk on “Emotional Connections in Design”. Rob is a is a partner at Michael Graves Architecture & Design and passionately believes that design has the power to positively impact people’s lives (we wholeheartedly agree!). His talk focuses on applying the right blend of research, psychology, creativity and strategy to identify root causes, allowing the best solution to be designed.

In collaboration with our friend and fellow sponsor By & Large, we expanded on the branding created for the IDENTITY conference. The ‘connect the dots’ concept is utilized throughout, symbolizing a unique path that we all follow while establishing who we are. The bold red and black TED branding remains, but the graphic application of elements are unique to each TEDx independently organized event.


TEDxNavesink gathers together thought leaders in technology, science, gender, business and art. A unique lineup of speakers will share with the audience how identity shapes perceptions and reality.

TEDxNavesink is a self-organizing annual event dedicated to education, community, innovation, and “ideas worth spreading.” Each year, a different theme is chosen to build the day of nonfiction theater. Hundreds of business and nonprofit leaders, students from local universities and sponsors plan, manage and fund the all-day event.

As a partner and sponsor, we created the program for all attendees at the event.
Marketing insights + best practices delivered monthly.
