London Design Festival

Today Munich Artists will begin exploring London Design Festival.  Last night I went through the guide. (which you can download here.)  and I decided to attend The Business of Design talk.

That talk is described as follows:

The business of design can be one of the biggest challenges for any designer to navigate. This panel will explore the relationship between creative practice methods and the tools and skills required to function effectively as a practicing designer today, sharing insights into different models, approaches and operational scales of practice.

The Panel discussing the Business of Design includes:

  • CHAIR: Alec Dudson, Intern Magazine
  • Sarah Boris, Sarah Boris Studio
  • Susanna Edwards, Course Coordinator Falmouth University’s flexible MA Graphic Design Online
  • Theo Inglis, Designer and Design Writer
  • Alex Ostrowski, Founder, Lovers
  • Neef Rehman, Adventure Lead, ustwo

After the talk is a workshop which is sold out.

Before heading to sit indoors, I will be hunting for a sculpture entitled Please be Seated created by Designer Paul Cooksedge.
