Neville Brody: Wanker or Genius?

I went to the Neville Brody D&AD lecuture last night, well it was more like an interview performed by Adrian Shaughnessy. They touched on many different subjects, least of all graphic design, which was a nice change.

Brody expressed his views on design education and how the current system has essentially turned education into a business and should be thrown out and re built. He touched on the concept of being a 'design celebrity' and how this had caused unfair personal attacks on him within the design community among many other topics, which somehow regularly seemed to result in slagging off right wing politicians.

The talk was extremely interesting, Brody is an very articulate individual with a lot to say and an effective way of saying it, however his views on the future are slightly bleak: 'considering how firmly in the pocket of Rupert Murdoc the future government of this country is, one day we'll all be working for him.' He also made the fascinating observation that this generation is the first in history where the future is not neccesarily seen as a positive place.

The talk ended with an audience vote: Neville Brody, wanker or genius? I didn't really agree with either sentiment but voted genius just because i'm nice like that..

Big up your chest Neville Brody

Consolidations of Philosophy

After coming to the realisation that the poster / booklet I did over summer about The Consolidations of Philosophy by Alain Botton (good book) is completely wank I decided to re do it today and am much happier with the results..

For those who don't know Where's Nana is a night run by me and a mate in Bristol. The basic premise is that old women are jokes, its jokes to dress your mates nan up and put her on a flyer, come to our night cos it will be jokes.

Southville poster

Maria & I made this poster about Southville in South Bristol in uni on Tues.
Underlying message: Southville is wank
After my first post about 9 months ago I pretty much forgot I had this blog. However after months of neglect I plan to consistently update this shit with my shitty work, shit which interests me, shit which I find inspirational and general shit which people need in their lives.

Hope you enjoy
