Event 41 – Rodney Fitch, CBE

Event 41 - Rodney Fitch

Every now and again we at LongLunch get access to a legend; Peter Saville, Ian Anderson, Jonathan Barnbrook and Adrian Shaughnessy to name a few. To land a former president of the D&AD, CSD and a CBE to boot is a bit of a coup though.

I remember being introduced to Rodney Fitch’s work when I was still at school. My father was commissioning a rebrand and he had been sent Fitch’s latest introduction booklet. Perfect bound containing pretty much every major brand I had ever heard of it, was carried with me from agency to agency for years.

Fitch’s career started before most of the LongLunch audience were even born and it is a testament to design that he has been recognised in so many arenas for his services to design.

To close out 2010 with such a massive contributor to design and the arts is a big thing for us at LongLunch. So grab your tickets because this is a biggy. http://longlunch.bigcartel.com/

See you there.
