The passing of John Gillard is a great loss to all of us who had the privilege of knowing and being taught by him.
Gillard was a very special person and hundreds of us owe him a huge debt. He was without question the greatest inspirational teacher that the UK design and advertising industry has ever had.
In February we would like to celebrate Gillard’s life with a lunchtime party and also to make sure that his ideas and passions live on through a student education-related memorial.
The purpose of this letter is to make contact with as many of Gillard’s ex-students, fellow teachers and supporters who would like to be part of this event. British Design and Art Direction is enthusiastically co-ordinating this, so please phone Camille on 020 7840 1135, fax 020 7840 0840 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your interest in attending.
Details will be sent to you personally in January.
