I forgot to mention where these categories came from (distinguishing the 
type of talks). But while trying to combine these 'indicators' with the 
logo 'flags/m', I thought, they might as well serve as a well suited 
subline for lgm (perhaps with some more precision needed), to give a 
first/rapid impression what to expect.

So the categories that were discussed also included:

I experienced that in english the differentiation between artist and 
designer is handled a bit different than in it is for example in german 
(gestalter <-> künstler), but I am not a native speaker and maybe it 
does not matter at all, because the meeting is in Germany.
