In May-August 2011, Emanuel Barbosa curated the exhibition “David Carson Design” at the ESAD College of Art and Design in Matosinhos, Portugal. David Carson also gave lecture and a workshop “Self Indulgent Design”. These four videos – featuring an interview with David Carson, an hour-long lecture on his work, and impressions of the exhibition and workshop – give us the opportunity to approach his work from different angles.

Known for his radical approach to graphic design, David Carson in the 90’s designed Beach Culture, RayGun magazines and he is also author (together with Lewis Blackwell) of the world’s best selling graphic design book “The End of Print”.
