Wednesday April 25th – ‘Protest’

Jonathan Barnbrook, whose design studio was the main designer to David Bowie from 2000, is a type designer and design activist that has collaborated with the Occupy movement, Bansky on his Dismaland show, and Adbusters. He will be joined by Lucienne Roberts, director of graphic design studio Lucienne Roberts+, who makes accessible, engaging work with a socially aware agenda including the 'Hope to Nope' exhibition at the Design Museum currently and Ty Drake, a graphic designer who teaches at ArtCenter College of Design in Los Angeles, USA. With first hand experience of the Black Panther breakfast program, he visually reinterprets the Black Panther 10 Point Manifesto in his graphic series Hard Bop.



Thursday July 12th – 'Persuasion'

Naomi Games, daughter of Abram Games, and Alex Aiken, founder of Perfect Day, examine how history has demonstrated the impact and power of visual design to persuade the opinion of an entire country — from participating in a world war to driving social change at home and abroad. They are joined by Judy Groves, artist and typographer who will reflect on David King, prolific political poster designer of the past 40 years, covering many issues from apartheid to nuclear proliferation, and David Law, founder and executive creative director at SomeOne to do the same for commercial messages.



Thursday October 11th – 'Empowerment'

Can typography influence the impact of news across all media? Dr. Nadine Chahine, UK Type Director & Legibility Expert at Monotype, Mike Abbink, type designer and executive creative director at IBM and Paul Barnes, co-founder of Commercial Type demonstrate the importance of design and typographic legibility in the dissemination of information.

All dialogues moderated by Patrick Burgoyne, editor, Creative Review
