3D Designer and Illustrator.Self-taught designer Rizon Parein has been crafting campaigns for ad agencies across the globe and working for premium brands and international acclaimed artists for almost 20 years. In 2013 Rizon started working primarily for Nike Brand Design Portland. He is particularly proud of the Air Max Lunar1 campaign, conceived together with Michael Spoljaric, where he came up with the idea to create an air bubble merged together with the iconic Air Max window. This simple metaphor became intrinsic to many following key Air Max campaigns. Rizon also created the neon poster of the cult movie Drive, which started a wave of 3D neon designs that is still trending. This hype jumpstarted his second business under the name of OneMoreNeon, clients include Jay-Z, Apple, Google, Youtube, EA Sports, Facebook, Disney, Sony Pictures, and many more.
Rizon always had a soft spot for driving community, connecting people, sharing passion, knowledge and initiate cross pollination, preferably around a dinner table and a glass of vin naturel. This urge eventually led Rizon to initiate Us by Night, a creativity festival that challenges the format and set a whole new standard. In 3 years it grew into an annual mecca for contemporary design. The last edition (2018) was sold out almost two months before date, hosted three stages with more than 70 international speakers and attracted 6.000 visitors (50% from abroad).
