We’ve been approached by Designer Breakfasts, an organisation about the same age as 26 and run by designers Amanda Tatham and Mike Abrahams. Every month they run a Designer Breakfast at which leading lights of the design industry talk in a challenging, not self-promotional way about a subject that matters to them. The theme of this year’s talks is “telling the truth”.
26 has been asked to provide a different writer for each session. A free breakfast awaits (at BBH in central London) but, much more importantly, there is also the chance to write a commentary on the talk. The idea is then to collect and publish these pieces of writing at the end of the year in a joint Designer Breakfast/26 booklet.
