Wilson's Republic returns for our fifth outing. Our theme for WR5 is 'process' and we welcome an inspirational line up of local talent to talk about how they approach their work...
Multi-award-winning studio Fettle Animation will talk us through their unique approach to storytelling, often taking complex subjects and making them easy to understand. Mike Lemanski is a graphic designer, illustrator and print maker. His strikingly simple compositions have attracted the likes of Lacoste and John Lewis as clients. Laura Slater is a pattern maker whose hand-printed work crosses products, textiles and prints. Laura was recently a finalist in the 2016 Etsy Awards and also a speaker at 100% Design in London.
We're delighted again to be hosted by the guys at Byram Arcade and music will be supplied by Boy Oliver. We'll be open from 6.30pm for drinks and food at the Blue Rooms. The first talk will be at 7.30pm.
Our process-inspired identity for WR5 has been created by designer Leo Parker from The Engine Room.
Get down early and say hello. It's going to be good!
