Glug x Ravensbourne – What I wish I knew when I graduated
Wed 30 November 2016, 18:00 – 22:00 GMT
On the 30th of November we've got something special coming your way – we're putting on our final collab-event of the year as we're bringing Glug to Ravensbourne (the epic design and media uni). We've put together an incredble line-up ready to share 'what they wish they knew when they graduated'.
We'll be hearing career journeys, industry insights and tips & ideas from no one less than Anthony Burrill, Stuart Watson (ex. Design Studio, Moving Brands, Venture3 & Wolff Olins), Dan Moore of Output Group, Iona Inglesby from DotOne, Ravensbourne's alumni duo Chi & Josh as well as Ravensbourne Motion Graphics' Alumni Lauren Dyer from MediaMonks.
This event is ideal for students and juniors who would want some hands-on tips, inspiration and insights in how to break into the industry and making the most out of your career.
Ravensbourne students/alumni/staff – the event is free of charge for you guys in return of showing your Student ID on the night or being on the alumni & staff registry. We'll be cross-checking these orders once they've been processed. You do need a ticket, so make sure to nab one before they're gone as no ticky = no entry :-)
Gluggers – we've set aside tickets for you lot as well and they're £7 only to cover some of the costs of running the night. Arguably our most valuable £7 ticketed event everrrrr.
Date: Wednesday 30th of November
Time: 6.00pm – 10.00pm
Nearest tube station: North Greenwich, Jubilee Line
Speakers: Anthony Burrill, Stuart Watson, Iona Inglesby, Lauren Dyer, Dan Moore, Chi & Josh

Graphic artist, print-maker and designer Anthony Burrill is known for his persuasive, up-beat style of communication. His work is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York and has been exhibited in galleries around the world including the Barbican Art Gallery, the Walker Art Center and the Design Museum, London.
Words and language are an important part of Burrill’s output and he has developed a distinctive voice that is sought after not only by collectors of his posters and prints but also by clients including Apple, Google, Hermés, British Council, London Underground and the Design Museum. Burrill is perhaps best known for his typographic, text-based compositions, including the now-famous “Work Hard and Be Nice to People”, which has become a mantra for the design community and beyond.
Burrill was born in Littleborough, Lancashire. After studying Graphic Design at Leeds Polytechnic he completed an MA in Graphic Design at the Royal College of Art, London. He now lives and works on the Isle of Oxney, Kent.

Soon after, he left Wolff Olins and helped to build venturethree, a new kind of agency. Progressive, awkward, challenging. There he reinvented brands such as Sky, The Times, and Little Chef, earning two D&AD silvers, three D&AD In Books, and a 5-Star Brand New Award. He became the youngest partner at venturethree at the age of 28.

In 2015 he was invited to become Executive Creative Director at Design Studio where he and the team went on a pitch winning rampage, bringing in Deliveroo, Premier League, Lendinvest, Treatwell and Snapdeal.
Stuart hopes his latest move is his last as he faces his toughest challenge yet in setting up Nomad, a brand new brand agency in a city full of brand agencies. He doesn’t sleep as well as he used to.
