Learn, Create, Produce Jersey is brought to you by Creative Industries Guernsey & The Potting Shed Agency in partnership with Digital Jersey Limited.
Launched in 2014, the first LCP symposium dramatically illuminated how Guernsey’s creative sector is developing as a vibrant and viable sector, benefiting the island economically and socially. Building on this LCP 2015 is extending to Jersey through the collaborating of Digital jersey and creative industrial Guernsey. “CIG” is providing the focal point for “creative” in Guernsey and flowing from this event will, hopefully, be a Jersey equivalent.
The annual creative symposium celebrates the value of emerging creative industries within the wider commercial landscape across the Channel Islands and beyond, through a series of presentations and discussions by international creative speakers who are globally respected in their disciplines.
Sagmeister & Walsh
From Grammy nominated CD covers for the likes of The Rolling Stones, Lou Reed and David Byrne to the rebranding of the Guggenheim Museum, Stefan Sagmeister’s roster of clients both past and present is nothing short of phenomenal. His New York studio’s painstaking attention to the smallest of details creates work that constantly entertains and enchants audiences around the globe. Sagmeister’s influence on the culture of design over the past decade cannot be overstated.
German media artist Joachim Sauter graduated from the academy of fine arts in Berlin. He has focused on digital technologies and how they can be used to express content, form and narration. Fuelled by this interest he founded ART+COM in 1988 together with a collective of artists, designers, scientists and technologists. A true creative pioneer and recipient of the “Golden Lion, Cannes”, and the “D&AD Black Pencil”, his work for clients such as BMW, Deustche Bank and 02 has both pushed and blurred the boundaries of art and design.
