Studio Audience: The pod talks Unit Editions, the Snickers ad and April Fools

Posted by Rob Alderson,

This week’s podcast is brought to you by fans of the less is more theory; there are only three of us dissecting some of the week’s art and design tidbits but we hope what we lack in quantity of guests we more than make up for in quality. So join us for 23 minutes of creative chit-chat; we promise you won’t regret it. I mean you might, but that’d probably be on you, yeah? You can listen using the SoundCloud embed below or why not subscribe via iTunes here. As ever you can also leave a comment using the discussion thread below.

This week we kicked off by looking at April Fools’ Day gags such as the one above from The Stack, and mentioned our very own mice-based offering. We then moved on to discuss the new Unit Editions book celebrating corporate design manuals of yesteryear, and discussed the new Snickers ad (below). Finally we touched on the launch of the London TV station London Live, which had some pretty brutal reviews.

    Oh hey guys! This week’s podcast is an absolute banger. Sans Rob Alderson the terrific trio Liv, Maisie and James are joined by It’s Nice That co-founder and kind-of celebrity Alex Bec. To be honest we had to get him in because one of the topics was football-based and we three don’t know anything about that.

    There’s a poem often read out at weddings by A.A Milne that starts “where there’s me, there’s poo.” I feel that even though I dislike that poem, it does ring true to my life in that every time I host the pod we end up talking about toilets for at least five minutes. This week is no exception, we hear about toilets, James’ trip to Iceland and some exciting art and design news. As ever listen using the SoundCloud embed below or subscribe via iTunes here.

    After a week-long hiatus while we moved studio, Studio Audience is back and wasting no time delivering some effervescent art and design chat to your lugholes. There was a slight delay getting the episode together as we wanted to get the news and views from graphics arts festival Pick Me Up but we think that’s for the best and we hope you agree.

    From fashion to graphic design, addictive apps to a new food website, this week’s podcast ranges over creative territory like that admirable group of misfits in those really long films about a ring. There are peaks, valleys and some scrubland (metaphorically speaking) but we still hope you come along with us for the journey.
