Studio Culture, the event

Timed to appeal to both recent graduates and current students, Unit Editions’ debut book Studio Culture is the catalyst for a free day of talks and round table discussions on studio life at the Design Museum in London next month

Timed to appeal to both recent graduates and current students, Unit Editions’ debut book Studio Culture is the catalyst for a free day of talks and round table discussions on studio life at the Design Museum in London next month…

Hosted by the publishers of Studio Culture: The Secret Life of the Graphic Designer, the event will feature contributions from studios such as Bibliothèque, Build and Julia, and also Unit founders, Adrian Shaughnessy and Spin‘s Tony Brook.

Billed as a series of talks and discussions, topics covered will include “what [design studios] look for in potential employees; advice on how to approach studios; what to expect when you get a placement or a job; and how to present your work,” say Unit. Questions on any and all studio-related subjects will also be welcomed.

CR interviewed Shaughnessy and Brook when Studio Culture came out in November 2009 as part of our special Work Life issue which was itself inspired by the book.

Studio Culture – The Event takes place on Friday July 13, midday-8pm at the Design Museum. The book will also be for sale at the event at a reduced price. See uniteditions.com and designmuseum.org.
