I decided to go home for a couple of days last week and then to visit Kingston where I have some friends also studying Graphic Design, it is always good to see what other people in other places are doing when it comes to Design. While I was at Kingston I also managed to sneak into a couple of great lectures. First by the Israeli typographer Oded Ezer, he had a really 3D approach to his typography which was really interesting, he also worked with the Hebrew language, which was great to see, he was very expressive and experimental and gave great advice on using simple ideas to communicate strongly. Then in the evening I went to a talk by the well know Jonathan Barnbrook. This guy has achieved a lot and is also very 'morally' driven. He explained in his talk how he wont work for large companies like Coca Cola and Nike out of principle, which is admiring and he spoke well about his reasonings. The talk was very inspirational and made me realise just how much you need to believe in yourself and stand by what you believe in. It was a good two days but Im very happy to be back in Brighton.
