typotherapy had the pleasure of attending the 2013 AGI Open in London, hands down graphic design’s most high-profiled annual international conference.

This conference dubbed “the world cup of graphic design” featured over 40 of the world’s leading graphic designers, illustrators and creative thinkers—all members of the protégés Alliance Graphique International (AGI).

The conference bestowed engaging dialogue, motivational stories and captivating discussions from self-initiated projects to obsession and inspiration; all in sync with impressive mind-boggling designs projected throughout the auditorium.

Our highlights were, Ian Anderson (Designers Republic), Tony Brook (Spin, Unit Editions), Adrian Shaughnessy (Intro, Unit Editions), Peter Saville, Stefan Sagmeister (Sagmeister & Walsh), Paula Scher (Pentagram), Nick Bell (Nick Bell Design), Jonathon Jeffrey (bibliothèque), Margaret Calvert, and the brief appearance from Vaughan Oliver (V23).

The entire event was brilliant, and not to mention it was incredible to be in the same room with our design idols.

Without a doubt, this was the best graphic design conference we’ve ever been to, immersed in one of the finest cities in the world.
