Design Lecture: Rick Poynor – Designing Pornotopia

Tue 31 Oct 6.30pm £6.00/£4.00 concs

Founding editor of Eye magazine, Rick Poynor has written extensively on design, media and visual culture. In his new collection of essays Designing Pornotopia (Laurence King) he paints a vivid, sometimes uncomfortable picture of where 21st century design culture is heading. He directs a critical eye at brands, billboards, magazines, architecture, tattoos and trends in cosmetic surgery and targets the pervasiveness of sexual imagery in the market place and the media’s symbiotic relationship with pornography.
