We Love Amazing Design Events

13 September 2011

This is a very busy time in the world of design and education.

Towards the end of this month I will be attending the annual YCN Students Awards Ceremony in London, to see two of our own (recently-graduated Sarah Crawford and current HND Year 2 Abbie Macpherson) pick up their YCN Commendations. I'll also be collecting the third award on behalf of Gill McColl.

We have just renewed our D&AD University Network membership, and D&AD are currently involved in a number of events this month in London to coincide with the London Design Festival, which runs until 25th September at the V&A.

D&AD have also announced that their annual educational tour, where they travel the country and present workshops, lectures and seminars, will include a visit to Edinburgh this year. Last year's event took place in Glasgow and was hosted by Glasgow School of Art.

The venue this time around has yet to be confirmed, but the date for your diary is Thursday November 17th.

Finally, it's typography heaven as TYPO - Europe’s most successful annual three day design conference - returns to London during October and features a bunch of A-listers from the world of typography, design, film, publishing and education. Speakers will include Neville Brody, Michael Bierut, Erik Spiekermann, and Gary Hustwit (the director of the HELVETICA documentary). Wow.
