She’s got a ticket to ride


Back at the end of November four of us from the creative department at my work attended the Morag Myerscough Long Lunch event at Edinburgh College of Art.

She talked about her work, her studio,what inspires her, how she conducts her research and her employment philosophies (she believes no-one should work with her for longer than 18 –24 months, as after that you’re no longer being challenged).

 I found her graphic and installation design for clients such as the Design Museum, the Barbican and the Royal College of Art very inspiring.

I particularly liked her design of the Deptford Project, where she got to re-invent a disused railway carriage as a café and community arts centre.


It was so nice to hear someone speak with genuine enthusiasm and excitement about their work. She even found herself apologising for running over by 20mins as she had so much she wanted to tell us about.

All-in-all a very interesting evening – and they were even kind enough to hand out copies of the ‘She’s Got a Ticket To Ride’ 6-colour, screen-printed poster on the door. Mine is currently on the wall in my study, but you can see it on the home page of her website.

The most recent Long Lunch took place last night at the Glasgow School of Art and unfortunately it sold out before I could get myself a ticket! London based agency Tomato were up this time. They recently created the typography for Quantum of Solace.
