SPEAKERS ON THE NIGHT
Phil Baines has designed the branding and exhibition design of the recently reopened Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, which focuses on the designers, artists, and craftspeople who worked in and around the village during the 20th century. They included Edward Johnston (regarded as the father of modern calligraphy, and most famous for designing the typeface used throughout the London Underground), Eric Gill (typeface designer, stonecutter, printmaker and sculptor) and Philip Hagreen (wood engraver). The talk will describe the pleasures and problems of designing for this very particular collection and museum that has been described as “a must-see design space’.
Phil combines teaching typography at Central Saint Martins with a freelance practice which has included work as diverse as lettering for the 7 July 2005 London Bombings Memorial; covers for Penguin Books’ ‘Great Ideas’ series; and publications for Matt’s Gallery, London.
Tim has been involved in image making around surfing and adventure for the last 19 years. Not only has he been editor of Wavelength magazine, a film maker and photographer which has taken him to some of the most remote and stunning places on the planet, he has also published two inspiring books, ‘Surfing’ and more recently ‘Numb’.
World renowned for going to the colder regions of the Earth, Tim is often found living wild with bears in Canada, going feral on uninhabited Scottish Islands and spending months exploring Iceland’s vast but freezing coastline. He has put the adventure in surfing and goes totally against the preconception that surfing is all about hot sunny days on beaches in the tropics. The tales he has amassed from these expeditions boarder on the ridiculous, but are in fact just everyday occurrences and when coupled with the stunning images of wilderness and surf they make for compelling viewing.
The Makerie Studio, Joyanne Horscroft
Julie Wilkinson and Joyanne Horscroft are The Makerie Studio, a creative collaboration producing unique three dimensional paper sculptures for both commercial and artistic purposes. Using specialised papers and intricate detailing, The Makerie Studio design and create structural showpieces for window installations, advertising, editorials and private collectors for the likes of Vogue, Wallpaer Magazine and AMV BBDO. Inspired by forgotten worlds, rare prints and the beauty of details, The Makerie Studio create distinctive pieces using uniquely developed techniques, precision and passion.
In Russ’s own words … RUFFMERCY AKA Russ Murphy is an ol’ has been assed animator with questionable talent who’s trying his hardest to atone for previous design & animation crimes committed throughout his 15yrs in the industry. This consists of mustering up whatever rusty ol’ skills he has left to try and make the work he dreamed of making when he was a 13 year old kid full of dreams. He lives in Bristol with his partner and twin boys.
A Wintery theme will be the inspiration for our talented artists (one more artist to be announced soon).
Part of the Animaux Circus studio, Margaux is an illustrator and prop maker. Taking inspiration from folk tales around the world and extra terrestrial creatures.
Tom Ashton-Booth / Photo Installation
Remember Al Murphy’s ice cream van, it was such a hit with you Gluggers we have asked the talented Tom Ashton-Booth to create a 3d winter photo-set for all Gluggers to jump in and enjoy. Tom has a wonderful way with paper, sculpture and prop making. Be sure to bring your best winter woolly jumpers and hats for this one! There is an igloo, we are excited.
The Private Press, a great local screen-printing company are teaming up with the wonderful Al Murphy who has designed a limited edition print for Glug. These will be printed live on the night and are free to all you lucky people who come along. The Private Press offers a range of services from screen-printing limited edition artist prints to posters, flyers, record sleeves as well as bespoke design and printing for weddings and events.
Al Murphy, a regular favorite at Glug, was recently voted Illustrator Most Likely To Go To The Pub Later by himself and took first prize in every category of the Al Murphy Illustration awards which he hosted for the 33rd year running. In 2006 he moved to Berlin but left when he realised so had most of East London. In 2008 he moved to New York but left when he realised he had begun pronouncing tomato ‘toh-may-toh’ (actually he’s still there but don’t tell anybody). He is influenced by the work of the great masters Neil Young, Charles Schulz and Eric Morecambe and is partial to a Fab ice lolly every once in a while.
