We announced my in Dunedin after clearing it with their PR folks there. For those down there (David B. and David C.), I look forward to seeing you.
   I am likely to put some rough notes on this site well before Thursday.

Jack Yan gives Emerging Designers’ speech at Vodafone ID Dunedin Fashion Week
Dunedin, March 5 (JY&A Media) Lucire publisher Jack Yan will give the Trade & Enterprise breakfast address for the Vodafone ID Emerging Designers’ Awards on Thursday, March 8 in .
   Mr Yan will speak about how young designers can launch their internationally, and how to seize the ’s imagination. He will touch on topics such as and staying true to one’s vision.
   Mr Yan founded in 1997 as New Zealand’s first online commercial . Today, Lucire is a fashion magazine in both print and web media, and is New Zealand’s only fashion magazine published internationally.
   What is less known in New Zealand, though quite well known in Europe and Australia, is that Mr Yan is an international branding consultant, and the only antipodean member of the Medinge Group think-tank. In 2003, he co-wrote Beyond Branding: How Transparency and Integrity Are Changing the World of Brands (Kogan Page, London). In 2005, his Typography and Branding (Natcoll Publishing, Christchurch) was released. He is a regular international speaker.
   Each of Mr Yan’s businesses has become international, from JY&A Fonts, Australasia's leading font software company, to Lucire. He was most recently profiled in Idealog (March 2007).
   The breakfast is hosted by Mark Lockwood of DFI, the Dunedin Fashion Incubator, and Alan Richardson of NZT&E. It commences at 8 a.m. at Plato Restaurant, 2 Birch Street, Dunedin.

   Plato. I am so looking forward to the food.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
