Idealog's Design Series Event is fast approaching, and will feature talks from design deity Peter Haythornthwaite, Method Agency's managing director Sam Ramlu, craftsman, sculptor and educator Carin Wilson, and RCG's associate director Andy Florkowski, as well as live painting from up-and-coming artist Jake Feast, as well as the grand reveal of the winner of our Blunt + Generator Umbrella experiment.
