Rian to talk at Vision Bristol, 12-13 November 2014
"Vision gives you two days to soak up more ideas, inspiration and creativity than you could fit into the rest of the year. It's the only event where you can hear the likes of Alex Hunter, Patrick Collister, Simon Sankarayya, Michael Johnson and other leading industry voices in the same place. We're covering everything you would expect from Vision, but this year we'll also be looking at 3D printing, wearable technologies, the Internet of Things and future trends in social media. The talks and keynote speeches will give you ideas, inspire you and help you get back in touch with why you got into the business in the first place - to be creative."

Morrison and Hughes' online strip for the BBC, "The Key", goes live
"'The Key' is an exclusive comic created by graphic artists Grant Morrison and Rian Hughes for the BBC's freedom2014 season. The award-winning artists tell a story of freedom, which, apart from the title, has no words. The comic is part of the BBC?s freedom2014 initiative and it's a pretty clear allegory about how totalitarianism tries to rip people's individuality away. Here, individuality is symbolized by distinct keys everyone in the society wears around their necks. The story ends up being about martyrdom, community, inspiration, and a lot more."
