Glug present An Evening With Intro

Intro is a multi-disciplinary creative agency formed in 1988 and based in Smithfield. It has built a reputation for award-winning creativity within music, retail, fashion, arts, broadcast, corporates, government bodies and sport.

As part of Glug October, a panel of Intro's Creative Partners will talk about the history of the company, how design, moving image & the digital domain has transformed over the past quarter century, how Intro have tackled some of their most notable campaigns and what they believe the future holds for brands and creatives.

The panel will include: 

Julian House

Responsible for a broad spectrum of work in music, publishing, arts, culture and advertising. Julian enjoys the creative ideas that occur when working across different media/disciplines and the way music, film and design can feed into each other. Whenever possible he explores old print and film techniques with a perfect approach for him being a fusion of analogue and digital.

Julian H's output includes music campaigns for Oasis, Primal Scream, Stereolab, Razorlight, Annie Lennox, Broadcast, The Prodigy, Pet Shop Boys, Rolling Stones and Doves. And also book covers for Will Self, Leonard Cohen and Hunter S Thompson.

He is co-founder the Ghost Box record label, for which he records as The Focus Group. The 2009 collaboration with Broadcast was Wire Magazine Album of the Year.

Julian Gibbs

A hands-on director of all forms of film, music videos and commercials. A specialist in blue screen filming and special effects work, an editor, compositor, sound designer and stylist, Julian also art directs photography and image creation that requires a cinematic look.

Julian G’s involvement with Nike and BBC Sport reflects his keen interest in sport. He has shot numerous Premier League and international footballers and currently has on air sequences running for Match Of The Day, Six Nations Rugby and Formula 1.  He regularly teams up with Julian H to produce award-winning music videos for Primal Scream, Doves, Rolling Stones, Pet Shop Boys, Stereophonics, Elton John and Beady Eye. Other projects have included commercials for Coca-Cola, a film for CBBC, a fashion film for Maison Martin Margiela and 3D films for Philips 3DTV.  

Adrian Talbot

A designer, typographer, photographer and art director, with a particular interest in visual identity and typography. Adrian is currently working on font designs ahead of launching a foundry and preparing a website dedicated to his landscape photography.

Adrian's recent work includes visual identities for Crafts Council, Royal Academy of Music, Young Vic theatre, Bishopsgate Institute and restaurant chain Strada as well as printed communications for Arts Council and Southbank Centre and retail campaigns for Converse.

    Yep, agree with talk too long. Need a break half way maybe. The guys are creative gods, but was tiring to stand crammed in struggling to see and hear for that long. And too long to talk for too? Otherwise loved the format, enjoyed seeing a creative band play first too. If I went with others i'd probably have an even better time, everyone else bar me seemed to be in comfy little groups, that's definitely the way to go, if only I didn't work in a 1 man design team!

    The 'talks' area at the Cargo Glug events is simply too small and oversubscribed, and the visual and audio feed to the secondary rooms was too quiet and as such I sadly missed out on the Intro talk after returning from the bathroom.

    Glug maybe need to bite the bullet and run a series of more traditional 'lectures' alongside the standard Glug events, the choice of speakers is always perfect but too many other factors get in the way!

    A formidable body of work from Intro, no question. I was hooked. But last night was let down by the muttered delivery and crazy background noise ? Cargo's like a funnel. Less material, more volume!

    Charlotte, is that in life, or in regards to the talk? Narf narf.

    Great Band, good to start the night but the talks were a bit boring this time

    I gave up at 2006. Good burger though.

    Brilliant Glug, and loved the band also.

    What a great night, Intro has a great heritage so there was a lot of work to get through, I thought they did us proud. Public Service Broadcasting brought a splendorous musical edge to the night. Thanks to the Yarn Bombers, I hope you all noticed something different around the place. Big props to all that helped us get here, it takes a lot of effort to sort these nights. So it would be good to hear your opinions on this page, it'd be nice to hear some positives also!

    Thanks again, Nick

    Again there were TOO MANY PEOPLE in the venue, the last two times however early I try to get in we all have to stand at the bck with lots of people coming in and it becoming a squash - plus I can never see over everyone. Intro have been heroes of mine for a while but unfortunate we left the talk as we couldn't hear them and they looked a little bored by the whole thing. Plus we couldn't see the screen with everyone walking in front of us.

    INTRO - great work but the presentation simply was too long!!! the most relevant work (i.e. recent work) came LAST. Not good. we came as a group of around 25 people and EVERYONE left around 1.5 /// 2 hours in. it simply went on ... and on ... and on ... we couldn't take it anymore

    Only negative is entrance to talk was clogged so you had to push your way in but enough space inside hall.

    this is the first glug meet up i've been to. however, in the end i didn't get to see the talk as the room was too full. this was incredibly disappointing. please could you either move to a larger venue to restrict the number of tickets.

    I loved the talk. So interesting to see the array of work that Intro have done. However, although I did initially like the band that came on first (I liked their concept of combining music and video) they were on for too long. Two pieces of music would have been enough! I got bored after the third.
