Event description

Description

Design is such a middle class profession, so I really want young designers who may know little or nothing about this subject to pick it up as a design book and then hopefully take from it a desire to create meaningful work,” said Craig Oldham of his 2015 book, In Loving Memory Of Work: A Visual Record of the UK Miners’ Strike 1984-85 (It’s Nice That, 2015).

This year at Louder Than Words, journalist Farran Golding sits down with graphic designer, Craig Oldham to gain insight into his creative output; from his tribute to the Miner’s Strike through to Oh Sh*t… What Now?: Honest Advice for New Graphic Designers and explore his role within the world of Rough Trade Books – a publishing offshoot of the iconic record label.
