We are really excited to announce the full line up for Glug at the end of the month. Below you will find more speakers, live art and a limited edition screen-print for all.
Hosted by Crush and Agency Rush, Glug will be held at the fabulous Create Photographic Studios on Friday 29th November. This event is for all you creative types, bringing people from far and wide for a few drinks and a natter. If you happen to be a student or an industry pro with a passion for design, illustration, photography, 3D sets or the digital world we would love you to join us.
Those of you who have been before know this will not be some dry business card swapping networking event oh no! This is about like minded people being inspired by amazing creative talks, live art, interactive fun and having a drink or two (or maybe even 3).
Tickets are priced at a very reasonable £5.50, so why not start your weekend creatively? For any newcomers you will need to ‘RSVP‘ and pay for your ticket online to ensure your place.

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.

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.
AL MURPHY & THE PRIVATE PRESS / FREE SCREEN-PRINT FOR EVERYONE
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.
Many thanks to Print Source and Fenner Paper who have donated the paper for these screen-prints.
