Wow this site has been live for well over a year now? Its true what they say time flies when you’re having fun! I’d been wanting to give SL a much needed facelift for a while now and this felt like it was as good a time as any.
Before I get into the actual update I’d like to quickly go through the reasons why I felt I needed to do this little revamp:
I had an incredible time at OFFF Festival 2017! This was my fourth time in attendance so I knew what to expect from these 3 big days of inspiration in Barcelona. The speaker lineup for this years festival was crammed full of talented Graphic Designers and I was interested to see how this would effect the vibe when I compared it to my last visit in 2015 when the roster was much more motion focused.
So what is OFFF? The simple answer is that it’s a 3 day festival of creativity which takes place in Barcelona at the Disseny Hub (Design Museum of Barcelona), featuring a mix of insanely talented speakers, exhibitions and workshops. But it’s so much more than that.
Hola, I’m currently on holiday in the beautiful Sanlúcar de Barrameda, located on the southern coast of Spain it is part of the sherry triangle and is famous for its Manzanilla (wine), beach horse racing and flamenco music.
I’m staying with some friends that recently moved out here and they’re being pretty wonderful hosts, loading me up on local culture and showing me the sights before and after work.
This month sees Manchester’s annual design festive – Design Manchester 16 take place in various locations throughout some of the cities best known areas. The festival boasts a series of great events which include talks, exhibitions, live performances, workshops, film screenings, a design fair and parties. Many of the events taking place are free to attend, so whether you’re a student, professional or just interested in design theres truly something for everyone.
I’ve been absent from the city for a few months now, so it’s exciting to say that I’ll be back later this month to soak up some inspiration.
