Are Museums Waking Up to Branding?

This coming Saturday, as part of the London Design Festival, johnson banks' creative director Michael Johnson will be giving a free talk at the V&A about the state of museum branding in the UK, and the world. It builds on a talk he did earlier in the summer at the 'Communicating the Museum' conference in Stockholm.

For over a decade Johnson has been collecting examples of the good and the bad in the worldwide museum sector, which he'll refer to throughout the talk. He'll also touch briefly on some of johnson banks' work, for the likes of the Guggenheim and the Science Museum.

Paper or Pixel: another free debate about the death of print in the digital age where five designers present a handful of their favourite and most successful works (including Noma Bar, Kate Morross, Peter Crawley, Kirsty Carter and Emma Thomas (of A Practice for Everyday Life).

Talking Type: a talk by Dominic Lippa  about why he’s interested in type  and the work that has inspired him and influenced his own practice
