CR lecture: Angus Hyland
In his lecture, Hyland will talk through ten abstract and representational trademarks, examining both the history and development of some of the world's most recognisable symbols. He will also look at how these particular designs have lasted and at the relationships with the brands they represent. Hyland's book, Symbol, written with Steven Bateman, has just been published by Laurence King and contains 1,300 examples of purely visual marks.
The evening event will take place at Pentagram's London studio at 11 Needham Road, London W11 2RP on Wednesday June 29 (6.30pm).
We have 60 free tickets to this event. To apply for one please contact Jade Mellor on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0207 970 6238.
We will also be releasing a number of free places for students. Further details will appear on the blog very soon.

Great book and talk, very well put together
I want to go!
looks like a super swell event, hopefully ive got a couple of tickets from lovely Jade?
Really enjoyed the Symbol lectures so far (as published on the Laurence King site). Big fan of the Pentagram work through the years.
I love the cover and the content, pity it is a 24hr flight for me to get to the lectures.
Pentagram stikes again, isn't it a wonder that a typographic style developed and perfected in the 1950's still creates a perfectly pure and fresh aesthetic today as it did back then! Jan Tschichold = Legend.
