Graphic Negotiations #2 – Rosen Eveleigh

Join us online on 28 April, 1pm for the second in our Graphic Negotiations series of events, this time with Rosen Eveleigh (RSVP).

Rosen Eveleigh is a designer and researcher working independently or with artists, archives, editors, cultural institutions and publishers to produce graphic identities, typefaces, websites, texts, lectures, books and other works. They are interested in the historic and methodological relationship between graphic design and queer culture. Alongside their practice they teach on the MA Graphic Design at the Estonian Academy of Arts.

They will be discussing their recent work with us on Phyllis Christopher’s Dark Room, as well as their other work and research interests.

Book Works sees graphic design as crucial to realising artists and writers’ ideas in the final form of the book. While conventionally designers often become involved in the later stages of a book’s production, and with a limited brief, we involve the designer in a collaborative process from the start, with designer, artist and editor working together to create a book that realises the artists’ vision.

Graphic Negotiations is a series of lunchtime talks with designers, many of whom we’ve worked with in the past. The format and topic will vary, but all events will be online only, free to attend and will be between 1-1.45 pm on a weekday. The next three events are:

Thursday 28th April – Rosen Eveleigh (RSVP here)
Wednesday 18th May – Erik Hartin and Moa Pårup
Wednesday 15th June – Rose Nordin and Rosa-Johan Uddoh

Sign up for the first event here. And sign up to the Book Works newsletter for details of future events.
