St Bride Foundation Illustration Conference

Tue 15 May 2012 by Emma_McCann

On 19th June 2012 from 9.30-6pm, the St Bride Foundation is holding a one-day conference on Illustration. They have a fantastic line-up of speakers including Ben Flynn, John Lawrence, Linzie Hunter, Kai and Sunny, Nic Rawling, Peter Schrank, Helen Stephens and Martin O'Neill.

‘Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.’ Scott Adams.

Illustration plays an integral part in many of our design processes – from interpreting the ideas of designers, to bringing to life an author’s words. Free from the constraints of a set brief, illustration can act as an outlet where creative expression can roam freely. We normally only see the highly polished end result in the pages of a magazine, on a billboard or a jam jar label, but for illustrators this journey starts with ideas; with scribbles and sketches, mistakes and musings. With the advent of digital technology, we can gain more immediate insight into the story behind the pictures. Illustration can blur the boundaries across design, art, and typography and above all illustration engages, delights and inspires offering a fresh perspective to the world we live in.
