Our new design school, Lost in the Forest Institute (LITFI), has got off to a great start. In just a few short weeks we’ve been shortlisted in the PSFK-UNICEF Future of Mobile Tagging competition, worked with Jonathan Barnbrook and Dan Streat from BARNBROOK on the LITFI identity; arranged, promoted and organised first D&AD North Lecture with Greg Quinton from THE PARTNERS and started designing Creative Review’s 2011 Graduate Guide.
But before we go any further there’s a few people we need to thank for helping us to get LITFI off the ground.
Thoughtful thanks to Principal Lynn Merilion, Mel Spooner, Gary Spicer and James Corazzo from Stockport College, for their continued support and appetite for innovation and rule breaking.
DAVID HIEATT for taking time out of his busy schedule to write LITFI’s values.
Adrian Shaughnessy for his advice, encouragement and for being a constant source of inspiration.
Jonathan Barnbrook and Dan Streat for their enthusiasm, flexibility and straight-talking approach.
And finally, Bruce Mau, for showing us graphic design has changed but graphic designers haven’t and for allowing us to adopt the LITFI name.
