D&AD‘s next Sharp’ner event will look at the culture of fanzines in a panel discussion headed up by Professor Teal Triggs, whose new book on the subject is out in October…

The next installation of D&AD’s discussion-based panel events is set for 21 September at House on Berwich Street in London.

It will see Teal Triggs, Professor of Graphic Design at University College London, and author of new book Fanzines leading the conversation, with contributions from Alex Zamora (Fever Zine, shown above); Cathy Lomax (Arty); Laura Oldfield Ford (Savage Messiah); and Neil Boorman, creator of CR favourite, Shoreditch Twat.

Tickets for the event are available, here.

Sharp’ner is D&AD’s new pub-based initiative that aims to bring a panel of creatives together for a discussion on a loose theme every two months. The events are free for D&AD members and £5 for non-members.
