Yesterday (25th November 2009) we journeyed down to London to witness Adrian Shaughnessy in conversation with Neville Brody as part of the D&AD presidents lectures series. Ultimately the process was to decide whether Brody was a 'Genius' or a 'Wanker'.
I have to say it was by far one of the most exciting and tongue in cheek lectures I have ever attended. Whilst at the same time coming across extremely informative in many ways, from talking about his work, to his ideas on design education in Britain today compared to that of his era.
After both friendly and serious interrogation the audience was looked to for the answer to the final question, 'Genius or Wanker?'
The result was almost unanimous... GENIUS
