Interview: Es Devlin

Earlier this year we met and filmed an interview with Es Devlin on behalf of MediaStorm. The recipient of this year’s WSJ. Magazine 2016 Innovators Award in the field of Design, she is largely considered the most pre-eminent stage designer in the world.
Having worked with some of the greatest artists of our time, including Adele, Beyoncé and Kanye West, Devlin uses design to create “gestures” on stage that evoke the spirit of her clients.

A truly deep commitment to her craft, you can easily see why Devlin deserved the 2016 Innovators Award. She gave us an inspirational insight into her thoughts and processes and we were really fascinated by how her designs transpire through the different pieces that she creates.
Her sense of responsibility to her audience with what she is creating is something that really resonated with us here at JKP and it was a real pleasure to be able to meet and film her interview earlier this year.

Highlighting both her impact in design and the brilliance of creating what are essentially memories check out her interview below:

Es Devlin has spent 20 years investigating some of the most important stagecraft of the last two decades. From Wagner to Beyonce, Devlin has created stage design that expands upon the core ideas of each performance regardless of genre.

Great morning spent filming the Entertainment One exclusive Drama Preview 2016 at Picturehouse Central today. It was a fantastic opportunity to see the showcases for some very exciting and interesting new tv dramas that will be coming to our screens soon.

A quick vote round the JKP crew after the event and the all round first choice to watch went to Designated Survivor starring Kiefer Sutherland. Created by David Guggenheim it centres around a low-level cabinet member who is suddenly handed the presidency after a catastrophic attack during the State of the Union address kills everyone above him in the Presidential line of succession.
Other upcoming dramas showcased earlier today included You Me Her, Private Eyes, Foreign Bodies, Cardinal and Ransom.
It’s always great to be able to cover such interesting events and we look forward to seeing them when they are released!

For all those inventor and engineering lovers out there, we recently covered another fascinating exhibition launch of Leonardo da Vinci: The Mechanics of Genius at London’s Science Museum.

“Internationally-acclaimed, must see exhibition of 2016!” it is a brilliant insight into the mind of a Genius. It’s your chance to investigate both the facts and the misconceptions that surround this great genius of the Renaissance: Was he the period’s only designer of machines? Did all of his designs get fully constructed?
