Back to All Events


Our first event focused on trends within design. Compered by illustrator Roderick Mills we discussed questions such as: Why is trend a dirty word in design? How has the internet changed how we consume trends? And what is the difference between a design trend and a design movement?

On the panel:
— John O'Reilly, editor of Varoom magazine
— Caroline Till, co-founder of FranklinTill Studio
— Michael Slodoba, founder of
— Toby Jury Morgan, graphic designer

Trends are cyclical-an initial need that becomes saturated which creates a need for something new that becomes saturated... #crowdtalkstrends

How are trends discussed within arts education? 'Don't draw triangles' -is this helpful? #crowdtalkstrends
