In the run-up to Here on Friday 12 June we’re profiling the amazing creative talents who will take to the stage and today we’re looking at Anna Lomax. Submerging herself in pop culture, folk art and junk shops, the art director and set designer creates complex and idiosyncratic structures for photo shoots and ad campaigns, from neon lights and window displays to props and backdrops. Her clients include Nike, Selfridges and Converse, alongside some of the best magazines you’ve ever heard of, and probably a few you haven’t.
As well as Anna, this year’s Here speakers are digital guru Iain Tait, Grand Budapest Hotel graphic designer Annie Atkins, artist and designer Scott King, photographic duo Blommers Schumm, karlssonwilker’s Hjalti Karlsson, ManvsMavchine’s Mike Alderson and SHOWstudio editor Lou Stoppard.
We’ll also be welcoming illustrator Jordy van den Nieuwendijk, graphic designer Charlotte Heal and Nathan Cowen and Jacob Klein, the brains behind Haw-lin.
