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. As ever you can listen using the SoundCloud embed below or you can subscribe via iTunes here
We kicked off this week hearing from Liv Siddall and Maisie Skidmore who were among the first people to get a glimpse of this year’s Pick Me Up show at London’s Somerset House. Acclaimed art director Richard Turley announced he was leaving Bloomberg Businessweek for a new position at MTV which we reflected on before rounding off exploring Jack White’s four-hour vinyl production (from performance to release) as part of Record Store Day.
