D&AD President’s Lectures
We have a bit of a love/hate thing going on with the D&AD lectures. Sometimes they're utterly brilliant, with compelling speakers who talk with passion and wit about their work. Other times they're boring and banal displays of rampant self-love.
But it looks like the current president Simon Waterfall has done a bang-up job by inviting some really interesting speakers to come along for the 2008 series, and he gets extra points for nicking the Pecha Kucha format for one of the talks.
The line up is:
The Pecha Kucha night, with speakers from Digit, Hi-Res!, Poke and AllofUs amongst others
Bob Greenberg from R/GA, creative genius behind the motion graphics for Se7en
Sir Christopher Frayling, rector of the Royal College of Art
Amsterdam based graphic design group Experimental Jetset
Apart from Nick Bell, who's speaking in Manchester, the talks all take place at Logan Hall at the Institute of Education in London (near Russell Square).
