Does Music Need Design Anymore? Offset State event – full details

Just confirmed is the full line-up for the ultra-special State happening at the Offset 2010 design event. Our panel was hand-picked by’s art director Simon Roche with the aim of discussing the possible futures for designers in the realm of music. The idea for this panel discussion came from a interview with Shaughn McGrath and Steve Averill on their work with U2 and we are delighted that Shaughn is on the panel as well as Malcolm Garrett, Adrian Shaughnessy and Matthew & Emelie. Between them all they have worked on design, in various guises, for bands from Duran Duran, Buzzcocks and Primal Scream to Spice Girls, Jape and, of course, U2 and should offer a fascinating insight into the future, or lack thereof, for design and music.
