Positive for Conkers
Managing to forge a career and land a dream job, all because of simply 'giving it a go', Gav Strange is lucky enough to be Senior Designer for Bristol's Aardman Animations by day, and a jack of all trades, master of flip all by night, going under the alias of 'JamFactory'. Let Gavin bend your ear to convince you to stop talking about stuff, and just go and do the stuff, irregardless of whether you have the skills to do so. If this berk can bumble his way through a career, then imagine what YOU can do!
Crafting the message
The meaning of the word 'craft' has evolved over the centuries and we all have our own ideas about what it represents today. Local designer, Kyle Bean discusses how he is finding that the values of craft are often used by various brands to inject a sense of honesty and trust. He will discuss his own relationship with craft by talking through a selection of his recent personal projects and will explain his working process for creating hand made tactile images and installations for clients such as Selfridges, Wired and the Design Museum.
