On May 19, London plays host to the Brand Perfect Tour, a series of one-day conferences bringing together brand managers, creatives, designers and developers. We have a number of free places (worth £395 each) available for CR readers.

Brand Perfect is organised by Monotype Imaging. There will be three events this year – in London, Hamburg and New York. The London conference is on May 19 at the Century Club, Shaftesbury Avenue.

The idea of the day is to bring together brands and their designers and agencies to discuss how brands maintain consistent communications across all the digital channels now available to them.

Speakers for the London event include JWT CEO Guy Hayward,Wolff Olins‘ Marina Willer, SomeOne‘s Simon Manchipp and Philip Clement of mobile specialist bemoko.

In the afternoon, there will be a series of workshops looking at digital content with a particular emphasis on typography. Jonathan Barnbrook will lead one of them, billed as a guide to basic typography for the uninitiated and aimed at underlining the importance of typography to clients.

Tickets for the event cost £395 but we have a limited number of free tickets available for CR readers. If you would like to apply to reserve a place, please email Sarah Davies with your name, job title and company name at s.davies@centaur.co.uk
