In 2010 our Future:Content conference invited a range of speakers to consider what the coming years would hold for the creative industries. This publication reproduces all those presentations word for word, with short links to any slides, photographs and audio-visual clips the speakers used.
Those featured are Anna Gerber and Britt Iversen of Visual Editions, Ogilvy & Mather’s Russell Davies, D&AD President Sanky, Francesa Panetta of The Hackney Podcast, Morgwn Rimel and Cathy Haynes from The School of Life, The Design Museum director Deyan Sudjic, Channel 4’s Adam Gee, FOAM/Sony Music creatives Phil Clandillon and Steve Milbourne and design legend Neville Brody.
There’s also detailed feedback from people who were there, sketching out what they took from the conference, and three specially-commissioned essays off the back of the event. James Sunderland pulled together what it all meant for professional creatives, Professor Andy Miah introduced bioart, and Michael Wolff wrote a hymn to genuine human interaction.
