Artists’ Talk: Judy Blame & Malcolm Garrett

image
 
Accessories designer, art director and fashion stylist Judy Blame is in conversation with graphic designer Malcolm Garrett at the ICA.

 

In the early 1980s Judy Blame’s non-conformist attitude and a desire to distinguish himself within the London club scene motivated him to produce jewellery. His modest resources shaped his DIY approach and led him to incorporate found objects as a foundation for making his adornments.

 

Malcolm Garrett is Creative Director at design consultancy Images&Co, and is widely regarded as a key influence on the development of contemporary British graphic design. As a punk, and while still at art school in Manchester in 1977, he founded the innovative design group Assorted iMaGes, going on to create landmark designs for Buzzcocks, Magazine, The Members, Duran Duran, Boy George and Simple Minds.
