At our February event, our diverse speaker roster spans graphic, set and digital design, and the visual culture of North Korea. Buy tickets now for 20 February to hear from Gary Card, Yarza Twins, Lucy Hardcastle and Nicholas Bonner.
Set designer and artist Gary Card has spent the past decade creating fantastical and rainbow-hued worlds for the likes of Balenciaga, Hermes, Marta Jakubowski, Tim Walker, Katie Grand, FKA twigs and countless others. Alongside all that, he’s recently staged his second solo art show, and released a rave-inspired zine starring his signature monsters. He’ll be sharing insights into his recent creations.
Graphic design and typography studio Yarza Twins was founded by real-life twins Eva and Marta Yarza, and together they count Universal, Vice and Smirnoff among their clientele. For their most recent endeavour, the duo brought their talents closer to home, rebranding the small Spanish town of Oia near their own hometown of Vigo. The two will be telling us more about the unusual project.
For the past 25 years, Nicholas Bonner has collected ephemera from North Korea. Food labels, sweet wrappers, tickets, stamps, postcards and even state invitations made their way into his archive, together painting a picture of the mysterious country’s visual culture and self-image. He recently published a book with Phaidon showcasing the collection, and will be exhibiting key elements at House of Illustration later this month; he’ll be telling us some of the stories behind his discoveries.
Before digital designer Lucy Hardcastle even finished her master’s at the RCA, she was already collaborating on a major project with Chanel and i-D. Now perpetuating those initial waves, the designer has set up her own studio and has been delving into more complex and beautiful visual projects that link the tangible crossover between physical and virtual worlds. Lucy will be talking about her latest experiments.
