The Edge was the Design Business Association’s event matching young creative talent with more experienced practitioners, such as Michael Wolff, Erik Spiekermann, Michael Place and Richard Seymour.

These so-called ‘Pioneers’ – ‘creatives who have achieved great things in business through their passion, vision and daring’ – held workshops and one-to-one sessions over the two day event which took place last December.

As a grand finale, they all came together for a closing debate, which in this clip seems to have been dominated by ex-Benetton creative director Oliviero Toscani (much to the obvious exasperation of Spiekermann)
