A Certain Tone of Action - Folksy Summer School August 2013

3,256

Published on

I was invited to give a talk on brands and ideas at the inaugural Folksy Summer School in Sheffield over the weekend 10/11th August 2013.

There's a video up here now you can watch of the whole talk - http://smithery.co/making/forget-tone-of-voice-find-a-certain-tone-of-action/

Besides the Folksy gang being brilliant (so I just couldn't say no), this was an opportunity to take a lot of the new thinking and ideas I've been formulating this year into a different kind of presentation - instead of thinking from large brand down, it made me think from indiviudal designer-maker up.

In hindsight though, it's probably as applicable to big, established brands too. And anyone who tries to communicate what they're trying to achieve through their work.
