Charles Jarrold, BPIF

Welcome: A Year of Great Change 

As well as opening the morning session, Charles will provide an overview of how the print industry is responding to changes in technology, the market and economic environment. In a year which the immense drupa print trade show took place in Germany, shortly followed by the UK Brexit vote, and a change in government, as well as the continuing evolution in understanding of the unique role of print as a complimentary media channel, the overview should provide plenty of food for thought.

Design – Improving the Things That Matter in Life (sponsored by Canon)

At HemingwayDesign we have been designers for 37 years. I got my design ‘qualification’ watching brands, clubbing, cobbling together outfits and buying records. I’ll tell this story, looking at how we set up, built and then sold our first brand Red or Dead, how HemingwayDesign rarely has to bid for work, how we have never needed help from banks or investors and, because this is the Power of Print conference, how print and pattern is woven through the story!

Jonathon Porritt CBE,
Forum for the Future

Disrupted Climate, Disrupted Economy, Disrupted Lives

The 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change should prepare all businesses for a time of constant, radical disruption, either we do innovate our way through to an ultra-low-carbon economy, which will totally transform energy, transport, other sectors (including pulp, paper and print) and food: or we don’t, in which case runaway climate change will disrupt just about everything, everywhere.

Susan Greenfield, CBE,

The Different Impact of Print vs. Screens on our Thought Processes

Unprecedented factors distinguishing screen technologies from the printed page are affecting the way we read and think: the physical difference of viewing a screen compared to handling a printed book, the greater eye fatigue from a screen than a paper page, the availability of hypertext, and the opportunity to multi-task, all affect our brain processes.

The Way of Print in Brand Media
