On Tuesday September 24, internationally renowned designer Vince Frost, founder and executive creative director of iconic Sydney studio Frost* Design, will become the latest in a long line of design legends to speak at the Typographic Circle’s exciting programme of monthly London-based lectures.
During his evening talk, entitled 'Same Shit, Different Country', the graphic designer will look back over the past 10 years of Frost* Design. He'll give attendees an insight into his career and a rare opportunity to see him speak on this side of the globe.
As Frost says: "My journey to Australia from London was in search of a better work-life balance. Only to discover that my passion for helping people is nothing to do with where I am in this incredible world."
"It's something that genuinely comes from inside. Years of counselling, yoga and a number of distraction tactics failed to cure me. I am no longer fighting my internal desire of designing 24/7. I am grateful to live a full and exciting life in which thankfully, making things better is an endless task."
Tickets for Same Shit, Different Country are now sold out, but Computer Arts will be at the KWT ad agency in London's Knightsbridge, live-tweeting from the event from 7pm via @computerarts (opens in new tab), followed by a full report on this very site.
