LCP degree show definitely kicked off with ‘Influence’ the
first of three in a lecture series of talks by leading Graphic Design
practitioners. As a Camberwell Graphic Design Alumni I was particularly
interested in this one especially since Neville Brody was to be attending
and giving students some inspirational words of wisdom.
Hosted by Patrick Burgoyne , editor of Creative Review, It was a delightful
evening, taking a look at recent work from Neville Brody and his ‘Research
Studios’ in London, Paris, Berlin and New York, Peter Anderson,
Anja Lutz founder of ‘Shift’ magazine and Bob Cotton and after,
an informal discussion on their influences and clients.
Brody’s client portfolio includes Macromedia, Issey Miyake, Kenzo
and Puma to name but a few. Anderson’s includes Moschino, V&A,
and MOMA New York and is currently working on a new restaurant ‘Cayenne’
interior/installation for Paul and Jeanne Rankin.
Each guest speaker had an opportunity to discuss their work and influences
which included the 60’s, Punk and the Constructivist movement. Malcolm
Garrett was mentioned as was Ian Wright as Brody reminisced on his earlier
years whilst studying alongside him at LCP.
An engaging, informative lecture for graphic design students. So if you
weren’t there where were you!? Still a chance to catch tonight’s
final talk ‘Interactivity’ speakers include Tracey Emin and
Jason Kedgley from the design company Tomato…So it looks like another
Nearly forgot all you book worms who are having an early night, tuck up
with ‘The new handmade graphics, beyond digital design’ by
Hannah Ford and Anne Odling –Smee.
