Neville Brody, the British designer and art director, has now been at the forefront of graphic design for over two decades. Initially working in record cover design, Brody initially made his name through his revolutionary work as Art Director for the Face magazine. Other international magazine directions have included City Limits, Lei, Per Lui, Actuel and Arena, together with London's The Observer newspaper and magazine. Brody has consistently pushed the boundaries of visual communication in all media through his experimental and challenging work, and continues to extend the visual languages we use through his exploratory creative expression. In 1988 Brody published the first of his two monographs , which became the world's best selling graphic design book. Combined sales now exceed 120,000. An accompanying exhibition of his work at the Victoria and Albert Museum attracted over 40,000 visitors before touring Europe and Japan. In 1994, together with business partner Fwa Richards, Brody launched Research Studios, London. Since then studios have been opened in Paris, Berlin and New York. Clients range across all media, from web to print, and from environmental and retail design to moving graphics and film titles. A sister company, Research Publishing, produces and publishes experimental multi-media works by young artists. The primary focus is on FUSE, the renowned conference and quarterly forum for experimental typography and communications. The publication is approaching its 20th issue over a publishing period of over ten years. Three FUSE conferences have so far been held, in London, San Fransisco and Berlin. The conferences bring together speakers from design, architecture, sound, film and interactive design and web.

Dear Debbie,

I'm So glad you're back on air! I've learned so much from your podcast and looking forward to upcoming shows. Just one little thing, the link to itunes is not updated, even when I subscribed manually, the latest show is the one with modern dog dated back to 13/4/08. is there any way I can get the latest ones from itunes?
Good luck with everything,
Arash

I noticed that too subscribing via ZiePod. I looked at the RSS feed directly and it's exactly as Arash described: Modern Dog from April 08 is the most recent post in the feed.

Debbie,
We are all waiting for Itunes to put the new shows up on the podcast page. For some reason its just the 2008 old shows (an back from there) on there now, but no new ones. Maybe you could update them on your site. Also the Sterling link just has the popular show links. I can't seem to find the new ones anywhere! I'm particularly looking forward to Neville Brody! Thanx for the listen, best wishes.

Patiently awaiting new shows,
Lara
