We are excited to announce our second resident in The Press, Gareth Lindsay, who will be discussing some of his work and his intentions for the residency during an informal chat at Studio 223 in SWG3.
Gareth graduated from Communication Design at GSA in 2013 and lives in London. He is a freelance designer working with Europa, The Wire and most recently Housmans radical bookshop in Kings X. Through these various roles, Gareth works on books, booklets & leaflets, signing and shopfronts, exhibition design, magazine layout, various printed ephemera and even websites. More marginal activities include amateur cabinet making, sporadic lettering and minimal amounts of writing.
Guests are welcome to join us after Gareth's talk for a Pizza Party and Talks from the artists and designers who work in the studios at SWG3.
