A special workshop for RMCAD students by alumni and Radiance Award winner, Luke Flowers.

Inspired by my lifelong love of lighthouses, and the theme of RADIANCE. My name (Luke) means “Light Giving”, so I strive to embrace and celebrate that in all aspects of my creative journey. From the branding of Luke Flowers Creative to the storytelling in my work. Sharing signs of hope from my journey, and warnings of times I’ve crashed in the stormy seasons by missing the signs. Diving into the connections with fellow creatives that have been beacons of inspiration to me. Highlighting projects that have been milestone markers. Looking ahead at what is next and how to chart the course. I often hear so many fellow creatives say to me “We’re all in the same boat”. I find that to be true so often, even if we are experiencing the journey in different ways. The unity of creativity truly has us all engaging in a shared experience that comes with similar challenges, dangers, and dreams.
