Visual Culture

Connect, Create, Inspire

Cranbrook talks to Barnbrook, an independent site created by alumni from the Cranbrook Academy of Art design departments, recently sat down with Jonathan Barnbrook. The dialogue is quite good and well worth 5 minutes of your time. We’ve included an excerpt below:

We are not perfect although we try very hard. we do have a definite policy about who we work with and if somebody wants to work with us we will check them out. There are quite a few companies that we have turned down but I think it is now at the stage that certain people would not be silly enough to ask us. Its important that designers make a stand and let companies know they are not completely mercenary. Often people will argue they can’t afford to turn down work, and I know its not a case of them being starving…so they are changing it to a black and white situation that does not exist….

  2. Sämtliches neues Jahr müssen sich erfolgssichere Autobesitzer über feine und bedeutende Sachbeschädigungen aufbringen, die ohne eine gute PKW Versicherung unmoglich bezahlbar wären.
