Gather: The Remasters

Some talented folks have become masters of the remix – reinterpreting, reframing and representing the output of others into new works of brilliance. Taking the familiar into fresh new formats is no mean feat, in fact it often takes more ingenuity that starting from scratch… so sit back and enjoy the masterclass we’ve put together! We’ve everything from film props & ephemera to famous design monographs to classic comic book covers.

Masters of the rebrand, NB Studio are no strangers to a challenge – but it’s taken them blood sweat & tears to produce a fitting monograph to the life and career of legendary designer and long-time friend Michael Wolff (who co-founded Wolff Olins in 1965). Clocking in at 340 pages and emerging via the formation of the studio’s new publishing arm Library Street, this labour of love ‘Leap before you look – The Zen of Branding’ is a fitting culmination of a career. Owner and Creative Director Alan Dye and Senior Designer Becky Campbell will be talking us through it, plus a handful of projects.

Local legend Doaly has carved a niche for himself in the world of pop culture, reimagining household properties including Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Superman, The Flash, South Park, Rick & Morty and Star Wars. Over the years he has created artwork for a wide range of clients including the BBC, Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Marvel Comics, Lucasfilm, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, Wired, Sony Playstation, Image Comics and Lionsgate. In recent years he has migrated his skills to comic book covers and has worked for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, BOOM! and independents.

Bristol based Flora Fricker is a graphic designer working in Film, Television, Animation and the everyday – designing and making graphic props, from shop signage, to medicine labels and love letters. She has worked on everything from Giri/Haji to Gangs of London, from Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore to Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. Her CV includes time spent learning from both Annie Atkins and Minalima. Inspired by moments of nostalgia, nature, vintage typography and ephemera – Flora will take us on a journey into the world of Film & TV graphic props.

There’ll be some delicious street food available from our friends at Bundobust, and the Birmingham Design Shop will be on site supplying all your creative needs, plus we’ll be announcing a first-look at the full BDF line-up on the night!
