Following the tragic death of David Hillman Curtis last month, the Hillman Curtis celebration benefit has been organised and curated by Gary Hustwit, Stefan Sagmeister, Ben Nabors, and Ben Wolf, with support from the School of Visual Arts. It will be a celebration of the life and work of Hillman Curtis, hosted by his friends, colleagues, and the subjects of his films.

The Design Auction 2009. An event organised by students and tutors from the third year BA Hons Graphic Design degree course at the Lincoln School of Art and Design.

This event ran for the first time last year in Lincoln and was a huge success, raising significant funds for the 2008 end of year show. Contributors included Experimental Jetset, SEA Design, Paula Scher, Stefan Sagmeister and Why Not Associates amongst many other high profile names. Last year their ‘rebel’ auctioneer was Jonathan Barnbrook.

This year they are repeating the event in collaboration with St. Bride printing library in London. They will be hosting the event on the 19th March at 5pm. Half of the funds raised will be donated to St. Bride. This year they have a new ‘lowercase’ auctioneer, Michael Johnson of Johnson Banks. They inform us that they have already received donations for lots from Hudson Bec, YCN, Studio8, Magma, John McConnell, Spin and This is True North, with many more to follow…
