Great to see that this exciting event is returning to the North of England again this year.
The event will be taking place on March 21st in the grand surroundings of The Great Hall at Manchester Town Hall .
‘This year’s event will explore the complex relationship between design and the economy, bringing to question whether the UK’s place at the top table of world design is under threat as emerging economies invest more in their ‘knowledge economy’ – and whether design and innovation has the potential to power the UK out of a recession.’
Speakers on the day include :
Adrian Shaughnessy (Unit Editions)
Morag Myerscough (Studio Myerscough)
Alex Bec (It’s Nice That)
Jason Smith (Fontsmith)
Vera-Maria Glahn (Field)
As well as this GF Smith are showcasing their 126 years of print exhibition which will feature work from design icons such as Saul Bass, Paul Rand, Bill Mckay to name drop a few.
It promises to be an inspiring event.
