We open our meetings section with our cover star and all round incredible woman, Deborah Sussman. Having began her life as a designer learning from the very best – she worked for Ray and Charles Eames for ten years – Deborah has gone on to become one of the main drivers in defining the LA visual landscape. She designed the LA Olympic identity in 1984 and went on to develop her own brand of supergraphics
where her designs melded with architecture to create bright, inspiring and colourful environments that reflected the fun personality of the creator. We travelled to LA to meet Deborah at her home where she welcomed us in and told us the stories of her life through the collections and artifacts she surrounds herself with.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s style isn’t to rant or preach, but her message is powerful and profound. The Nigerian based writer tells engaging and hilarious stories of her own experiences relating to race and gender in a way that blows the cover on the double standards we
still live amongst today. If only her books were on the curriculum, not just the best sellers list. We spoke to her at home in Lagos about identity, race and when political correctness goes wrong. To read the full meeting, click here to buy your own copy of issue #2.
