Description

Conversations in Creativity:

Malcolm Garrett in conversation with Dave Kirkwood

in association with Creative Lancashire and GF Smith.

Conversations in Creativity is a series of talks and insightful interviews where leading creative practitioners from across disciplines explore how inspiration, often from around the world, informs their process.

Previous CiC events for the Festival of Making have featured Alice Rawsthorn OBE, Charles Hadcock, Jane Foster and Martyn Ware.

Malcolm Garrett

Malcolm is widely regarded as a key influence on the development of contemporary British graphic design. As a first-generation punk, while still at art school in Manchester in 1977 he founded the innovative graphic design group Assorted iMaGes, and subsequently created landmark designs for Buzzcocks, The Members, Magazine, Duran Duran, Boy George, Simple Minds and Peter Gabriel. In 2015 Malcolm was among the first 10 designers to be inducted into the Design Week ‘Hall of Fame’.

Dave Kirkwood

Dave founded his art and design practice, Dave Kirkwood Studio, in 2007. Alongside their client work they develop experimental working models for generating unique solutions to core brand visual communications problems. Their commercial work is underpinned by a body of self-initiated projects and stimulated by the teaching they undertake. Previous projects include 3hundredand65 – a graphic novel created on twitter in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. davekirkwood.com
