Hothouse Talk: Alistair Hall

Alistair Hall, designer, lecturer, all-round cool dude

This weeks Hothouse talk was by graphic designer and Visual Communication lecturer Alistair Hall. He gave us a wonderful overview of his career highlights, which serve as an example of a path we can take to meet our goals.

He showed lots of cool stuff, but the pictures I took don’t do justice to the work, so I’ll just sent you to his website. One of the most interesting things he talked about was how he saw a project in America that he liked, blogged about it and then asked if anyone in the UK would like to have a go with him. The project in question was a writing school-cum-novelty shop. He put the call out, famed writer Nick Hornby got involved, among others, and Hoxton Street Monster Supplies was born.

Alistair’s blog is really just a collection of stuff he finds cool, and appears to be highly regarded, so maybe there hope I can have A blog like that in the future.  Onwards and upwards, as they say.
