ANDY JEX & ROB POTTS
Executive Creative Directors - Saatchi & Saatchi
Ideas, Clients, Directors (and other difficult situations)
Andy Jex and Rob Potts (Jexy & Pottsy as they are known in the business) are the executive creative directors of the most famous advertising agency in the world. You won't realise it but they have been influencing what the UK public buys and watches on TV for over 15 years having previously worked at Mother, Fallon and DDB.
They have agreed to come and share the secrets of the advertising world as well as the processes and arguments involved in getting a client to 'buy-in' to Hank Marvin sausages, conference calls with Bruce Forsythe and maybe they'll explain what a Wallsie Onsie is.
Artist and Head of MA Photography at London College of Fashion
Interplays: Fashion and Photography
At a level of image, fashion and photography are synonymous. Paul Bevan will talk about ways of thinking about fashion + photography as constructed image/ body in a state of flux between one thing and an other. Fashion Photography is considered as pluralistic, unstable and in oscillation, between truth and fiction; cliché and the sublime; sameness and difference; public and private; still and moving; the mirror and window; high and low; the epic and the everyday - much like the spectacle of fashion itself.
Paul Bevan is Course Leader of the MA Fashion Photography, at London College of Fashion. He has worked in education for over 20 years, developing and leading photography courses across FdA, BA and MA in art, design, fashion and communication. As a lecturer, artist, photographer and writer, he has exhibited and worked internationally, collaborating on numerous creative and industrial initiatives. Bevan explores (fashion) photography as an experience or event, in both production and dissemination, and questions the relationship between body and image, artist and audience. Since his studies in fine art (BA; MA), and throughout his career, he has maintained a particular research interest in photography and time based media, including performance, within art and fashion.
