The D&AD is at the moment hosting its Sharp’ner event at PopUpHOUSE. Being part of the London Design Festival programme, HOUSE Collective is delighted to be able to provide the space for the night, themed on Fanzines. After an introduction by the president of the D&AD, the presentation and discussion was started by chair Teal Triggs, Professor of Graphic Design at the University of the Arts in London. With presentations of Cathy Lomax, founder of the still publishing Arty zine and Neil Boorman of the Shoreditch Twat, the evening started out promising! There will be more presentations after the break, by for example Laura of Savage Messiah.

Socializing in the break
Yesterday Moritz Waldemeyer, the designer known for his collaborations with for example top designers Ron Arad, Hussein Chalayan and Zaha Hadid, gave a talk about his work at PopUpHOUSE. Moritz entertained and engaged the audience with examples of his practice, from starting out at Philips Research up until his latest endeavours with car manufacturer Maybach, a story including private jets to Istanbul and kung fu sticks fitted out with lasers and LEDs. Of course the best way to learn about his work was to be present yesterday evening, but for everybody that wasn’t present, please check out: www.waldemeyer.com and the pictures at the flickr account of HOUSE Collective.
