Here 2013 Speaker Profile: Wayne Hemingway’s extensive career in design

For over 30 years Wayne Hemingway has been an influential designer with his wife and business partner Gerardine Hemingway. They set up fashion label Red or Dead in the early 1980s, (which ran for 21 consecutive seasons on the catwalk at London Fashion Week), and the couple went on to found Hemingway Design, a multi-disciplinary design agency working across the arts.

Their work includes a major award-winning housing project in Tyneside, for which they coordinated everything from the design and landscaping through to the marketing. Other works include designing a shoe range for classic British brand Hush Puppies and redesigning the uniform for McDonalds making it more sustainable in time for the London Olympics. Hemingway Design also curate events, including the official Queens Diamond Jubliee party in 2012 as well as their on-going Vintage festival.

We are thrilled to have the iconic British designer at Here 2013 talking us through how he forged his design career, swapping a formal design education for discos, gigs and jumble sales.
