Wieden + Kennedy / Plazm present
A Design Week Portland event.
David Carson: typography rebel, revolutionary graphic designer, and legendary art director of the magazine “Ray Gun” will show what he’s been up to over the last couple years, and talk about the importance of not letting computers make design decisions.
Carson is a creative/art+design director with a long list of worldwide clients and awards. In 2014 he’ll receive the biggest award our industry gives for his contribution to the field of design. (but it’s a secret ’till January when they announce it). He’s a TED speaker, and was the main graphic designer on a Microsoft worldwide brand campaign, when he spent two months at Wieden+Kennedy. On Monday, October 7th he returns. Newsweek, before their end of print, said he “changed the public face of graphic design,” while Creative Review (UK) called him “the art director of the era.” David sez “whatever.” Come see and hear David’s show+tell.
Another secret: he’s hoping to find a creative design related job (+mentor some younger designers) in the Northwest where his family lives…
Featuring a live audio / visual set by E*Rock & Dane Overton.
Beer by Fort George Brewery.
A limited edition of Carson-designed W+K silkscreened posters will be available at the event.
