Norwich University of the Arts
Cowbird Programme

We enjoy a good design lecture – it keeps you sharp. In March 2013, Design professionals and students gathered at the Cowbird Symposium to hear from leading industry figures and discuss the continued dynamic between print and digital.

The march of communication technology is exciting but we still crave and respond to the tactile. Which was evident in the event programme – created by Studio in collaboration with Andy Campbell, Cowbird organiser and design course leader at Norwich University of the Arts.

The programme folded out to reveal a poster featuring a blog page by our former NUA colleague Nic Hughes – ‘we’re not going to *kern* our way out of this one’, defined the meaning of the event.

Cowbird was dedicated to Nic’s memory and his lasting influence on us all.
