Graphic Design Studio LONDON

The London studio is moving forward for summer 06! General info meeting at KAM AUD on Sept. 7th at 5PM. See you there.

The studio will cover 6 studio credits and thousands of miles. There is no other place like London for graphic design—it has a fantastic history and culture in things typographic, graphic, and all stops in-between. 5.5 weeks, letterpress experiences, excursion to Glasgow, long weekends for research and travel—and much more to talk about when we meet soon. You are welcome to email me with interest in attending.

Posted by Tony Brock on August 19, 2005 10:32 PM

I'd really like to go! I will need an immersion in culture before I immerse myself in work!

Posted by Caroline O on August 20, 2005 09:13 PM

Hell yes. I am in.

what are the chances of the trip happening again in a couple of years?


is there an estimated cost?


Dakota: There is always a chance we may do it again, but one should not bank on it. As for costs: there is a high-end that I and other here at the univ. like to keep trips under. I will announce a meeting soon to talk about details—stay tuned. Tony B.

I would also be down for an alum trip to London.
When I was a student we didn't go any further than Borders or Crabtree Valley for moments of inspiration.

KB: It would be great to see you there!

go, go, go.
its an experience of a lifetime.
there aren't enough words to describe it.

but worth every pence.

i'd love to go again.

I advise everyone to check this out, if it is financially feasible for you to participate. I was on the '03 trip, and it was quality - I wish I was there today!

Posted by masa on September 12, 2005 08:59 PM

i really need to experience this trip and ALL it has to offer...i hope there's a spot for little ol' me!

Posted by ERiCA McDONALD on September 12, 2005 09:38 PM

This trip is going to be fantastic. I am incredibly thrilled about the possibilities.

can i bring my appetite?

Posted by critter on September 18, 2005 02:15 AM

Where would everyone like to go?
I've heard requests for Paris, Barcelona, Ireland, and such. Any other suggestions?

Posted by Joshua Smith on November 15, 2005 04:30 PM


who's down for the cause????? :)

Posted by lauren broeils on November 15, 2005 04:38 PM

If its possible, I'm do or dying it to Rotterdam (aka "the avant-garde capital of Holland"). Its a burgeoning hub for contemporary art and all things au courant. There is beautiful architecture (a la Rem Koolhaas & OMN) and everything about the city is incredibly forward-thinking. Additionally, there is a Hostel on a boat located right in the thick of it all... which could prove to be a fun experience. As far as my personal reasons for going, I am deeply in love with Dutch typography, folk art, and design philosophy so I'd like to get a sliver of some of that. I plan on doing more research on studios to visit as well as other places of interest in and around Rotterdam.
Either way, I don't really care where I go, the previously mentioned all seem like such viable and interesting options. Its gonna be sweet no matter where we are. London might be enough by itself! Anyway, Get at me if you're interested.

Posted by Travis Stearns on November 16, 2005 04:01 AM

Im down for Paris, Barcelona, Ireland and Rotterdam sounds pretty hot....anyone wanna go to Budapest? Im Hungarian so....Erica and I had talked about Italy if we could find some cheap plane tickets if anyone else would wanna go. I absolutely want to take advantage of every weekend for travel so, get excited cause this trip is gonna be insane!! :)

Edinburgh is intriguing. Do you know what one does in Edinburgh?
I’m terribly interested in going to Ireland. Is anyone else thinking about an Ireland trip?

Posted by rachel gamage on November 17, 2005 01:41 PM

anyone like to meet one last time as a whole group / partial group before the break? i can show pics of the printshop + my travel pics of the last trip. post here if you have interest + time that would be good

Posted by tony on November 17, 2005 05:29 PM

i would like to do that. i'm not 100% focused on this trip right now because of, erm, school. but i'll be doing a lot of research and planning over the break, so it would be good to have that jumping off point

would it be possible to meet the week of Dec 5? or is that too late?

++ Rachel: we can figure out Edinburgh [see note ^ above o_O]

Posted by lauren broeils on November 18, 2005 07:52 AM

yeh i agree, a meeting would be beneficial. Just to get our heads together, get to see everyone going and find out what people are thinking.

On a travel note.
I would really like to get to Ireland, thats purely a personal desire, but it sounds like others are interested as well.
I think that Rotterdam sounds incredible based on the post by Travis. I am psyched to look into that. Consider me interested as well.

Posted by kyle on November 20, 2005 06:14 PM

we shall meet on the evening of Thursday, Dec 8th at or around 6PM.

i will email with the details.

bring prelim research and the full range of questions. bring your books and all of that.

this will be a good time for you all to meet if you do not know each other very well.
