Taking to the podium at Oval Space this month we have a truly brilliant line-up of creatives enlightening us on the ideas and inspirations behind their most recent projects. Get tickets now for 27 June to hear from Riposte magazine editor Danielle Pender, director Noah Harris, graphic designer Sonya Dyakova, and Aphex Twin visual designer Weirdcore. The event is now sold out – sign up to the newsletter to be the first to know about future events.
Danielle Pender is founder and editor of Riposte, the much-respected women’s magazine that continually pushes the boundaries in publishing. Issue eight, with cover star Ericka Hart, caused a stir for all the right reasons when it was released. Danielle will be telling us about this important photoshoot and why Ericka “is the literal embodiment of a powerful woman”. (Update Gem Fletcher, director of photography for Riposte will now be stepping in for Danielle. Read more here.)
Director and designer Noah Harris has directed captivating and inventive adverts for the likes of Google Chrome and Ford, and a music video for Julio Bashmore’s Peppermint. For his latest project for E.On, he travelled to the desert to direct 1000 solar powered toys, including toy versions of Gorillaz, in an epic feat of in-camera filmmaking. He’ll be telling us how it happened.
Graphic designer Sonya Dyakova is well renowned for her beautifully sophisticated work in books (notably at Phaidon) and magazines (notably frieze) and now runs a multi-disciplinary studio in London, Atelier Dyakova. Its recent design for food photography book Feast for the Eyes had us all drooling here at It’s Nice That, in particular for its approach to typography and retro references, which Sonya will be explaining further.
The enigmatic designer Weirdcore has created visuals for MIA, Radiohead and Tame Impala, and since 2009 has produced live visuals for Aphex Twin. Using live generated elements including footage from the crowd, combined with trippy and intense pop culture imagery manipulated in real time, what Weirdcore puts on the screens is both mind and retina warping. The designer will be treating us to a rare insight to his unique work.
