Icons Dinner – John Nowland and Milton Wordley

October 23, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Join AGDA for an intimate Icons Dinner with local design icons, John Nowland and Milton Wordley. John and Milton share with the journey that has led to them being recognised as some of the most respected and awarded pioneers in their industries. Hear the stories from their time working together over the past 30 years and how their chosen profession has shaped their lives and Australian design as we know it.

John Nowland

John Nowland has built up a reputation for quality and integrity in graphic design over 30 years. His work is accessible, accurate and diverse. New challenges excite him; meeting those challenges sustains him. In graphic design, he believes the best solutions are the simplest. These solutions also happen to be the best thought-out and the most effective. And most of all, they last. John Nowland is a former AGDA National President and founding member. He has won numerous Australian awards, while his projects have appeared in major design publications around the world, including Switzerland, Japan, the US and Germany.

Milton Wordley

Professional Photography has been Milton Wordley’s working life. Early on in his career he worked as a photojournalist on many Newspapers, including the Adelaide News, The Australian, the London Daily Express, the Australian Women’s Weekly and the Bulletin.

Milton established Southlight Photo Agency in the early 1980′s as a cooperative for freelance photographers. Over the years many other highly regarded photographers based themselves at Southlight’s purpose built Studio in the heart of Adelaide.

Milton is a master photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers, was the inaugural national president of the Australian Society of Advertising, Commercial and Magazine Photographers (ACMP) and has been involved on many other national committees over his 40 years as a professional photographer.
