George Hardie joins the speaker line-up for Here 2017

Graphic design legend George Hardie has joined the speaker line-up for Here 2017. Having worked for 50 years for clients around the world George needs little introduction. The graphic designer, illustrator and educator trained at Central St Martins and the RCA. His portfolio includes seminal album designs for Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and Led Zeppelin’s debut album.

George is famed for his meticulous, painstaking process, that he produces by hand. His career included a partnership at Nicholas Thirkell Associates (NTA Studios) and collaborations with the likes of Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis. George continued to teach until last year at the University of Brighton, and we can’t wait to welcome him to the stage next month.

We are looking forward hearing what he has to say on Friday 9 June, you can find tickets below!


Alongside George, this year’s speakers include fashion designer Christopher Raeburn, artist Ryan Gander, photographer Juno Calypso, graphic design agency Triboro, graphic artist James Jarvis, graphic designer Astrid Stavro, art director and photographer Carlota Guerrero and artist (and one of It’s Nice That’s Ones to Watch 2017) Marguerite Humeau. More speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.

On top of this we are lining up activities throughout the day that will offer you the chance to flex your creative muscles and engage with our speakers and sponsors.
