Designer and artist Scott King recently celebrated his new role as UAL Chair of Visual Communication by holding the first in a series of one-day project workshops for UAL students.
Scott King trained as a graphic designer, working as Art Director of i-D and Creative Director of Sleazenation magazines. He occasionally produces work under the banner CRASH! with writer and historian Matt Worley. His work has been exhibited extensively worldwide and clients have included such iconic figures as the Pet Shop Boys, Morrissey, Michael Clark and Malcolm McLaren.
To coincide with LCC’s new exhibition, Life on the Road, which features photographer Tom Hunter and celebrates the festival spirit of travelling communities in the 1990’s, we have a signed copy of Tom’s new book Le Crowbar published by Here Press and a copy of Dave Fawcetts book of travelling vehicles to giveaway to the Instagrammer who can best capture the essence of the show.
To win we want you to connect with @LCCLondon on Instagram and share images of yours which encapsulate the theme ‘Life on the Road’ or best capture the festival spirit that’s celebrated in the exhibition which is part of LCC Green Week.
“When I was the bad guy I was the cynic, I was the guy who hated sport, I was the guy who hated cycling. And I used to say to people […] I’m the only one here who’s not cynical. I’m actually a romantic. I believe that one day we can have a Tour de France that we believe in, where the winner is clean and is actually the best athlete, not the most doped-up cheat” – David Walsh, 2014.
The 2014 Annual Hugh Cudlipp Lecture, given on Monday 27 January at London College of Communication by The Sunday Times’ chief sports writer David Walsh, is now available online to enjoy in full.
Details of all LCC Green Week 2014 events are online now, including information on how to book for events where spaces are limited.
This year as part of a UAL-wide programme of events, LCC Green Week includes 25 free exhibitions, workshops, talks and installations (more than any other college) that unpick this year’s theme of survival and investigate how designers, filmmakers, journalists, photographers and communicators are responding to the issues of our time.
