Craig Oldham is a Yorkshire born, bred and idealistically realistic Retired football player turned professional Graphic Designer who is now based in Manchester. He recently put together a series of maxims accompanied by essays called 10 Penneth that he hands out to students when speaking about graphic design.
A little more on the project from the designer himself:
“10 Penneth (if you’re not sure what I mean by penneth follow this little asterisk sitting on the shoulder of this*) is an accompaniment to a lecture series that I have given to students of Graphic Design and takes the form of ten (for lack of a better word—and I can’t understand why there isn’t one) maxims. These maxims take the form of short essays, each one being a lesson that’s an important thing to learn in order to help the students become better Graphic Designers, and in order for them to better understand the profession in which they are entering.”
