One of the UK design industry’s true greats, Mike Dempsey, is to give the next Typographic Circle lecture

In a talk entitled Life Without CDT, a reference to the studio he co-founded in 1979, Dempsey will be looking back on a 40-year career during which he was won just about every industry accolade going.

Since stepping back from the business, Dempsey has also revealed himself to be a witty, insightful and occasionally sharp-tongued commentator on the design scene via his Graphic Journey blog, Should be a good one.

Mike Dempsey: Life Without CDT is at JWT, Knightsbridge Green, London SW1 on March 27. Tickets are £10 for members (£16 for non-members) and £6 for students (£10 for student non-members). Details here
