Dan was invited to speak at Visible Identities, the society of Antiquaries public symposium which was held at their historic headquarters in Burlington House, Piccadilly, London.
Dan was asked to contribute as part of a panel discussion on the future of Heraldry in a world of trademarks and logos, he was also invited to make a presentation as part of this event. Dan used this opportunity to discuss the contexts and constructs of logo design, so that the audience might better understand the landscape of the subject.
The panel was chaired by Dr Clive Cheesman, Richmond Herald at the College of Arms. Clive is responsible for the genealogical research and creation of the University of Portsmouth’s newly updated coat of arms, as well as the high profile coat of arms designed for the British team at the 2016 Rio Olympics in collaboration with Stella McCartney.
Other speakers at the event included highly revered Heraldic painter Timothy Noad, who has designed many of the British coins that have been in circulation for the past 20 years.
