Breakfast Briefing: Illustration Today
Talk | YCN Rivington Rooms — For our members and programme participants

We'll pull in perspectives from a panel of illustrative maestros; from artists to commissioners, examining what's at play in the practice today.

Illustration is a seductive medium, offering a powerful and emotive way to communicate in spaces large and small. Practically, it can be more straightforward to organise than photography, and offers an abundance of talent with which to work. However, it can also be a difficult medium to get right: finding the right artist, convincing clients of their relevance, nailing the briefing process, giving clear feedback and then applying it across a variety of formats. 

At this visually loaded Breakfast Briefing, we'll draw together a trio of panelists bringing expert and complementary perspectives from contemporary, commercial image making. Joining us will be Handsome Frank co-founder Tom Robinson, former head of art buying at M&C Saatchi, and Director of Soho Curious & Co Sarah Williams and illustration supremo Paul Patemen, AKA Paté. Each will share their views on the craft drawn from projects past and present, their key professional learnings so far and what's coming up that's getting them excited.
