Like Never Before

A Talk by Luke Gifford

6.15 p.m. for 6.45

Art Workers’ Guild
6 Queen Square
London wc1n 3at

Luke Gifford now runs his own consultancy (Luke Charles) but earlier this millennium he was an Art Director working at Wolff Olins and was one of the team who worked on the London 2012 project. At the time, the identity for the London 2012 Olympics was subject to much negative media scrutiny but it was fully implemented and subsequently there has been revisionist thinking about the identity and its influence on the success of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The talk will be an interesting insight into the inception of the project, the creative process and how the hostile media reception was dealt with.
