Talkspace 01

2 December 2010

Scotland's Design Agency of the Year for 2010, Whitespace, recently hosted Talkspace 01 - an event aimed at allowing local designers to share ideas and debate the current concerns of the industry.

Our HND students Adam MacDonald and Emma Hart went along and were really inspired by the community of practice and by the general vibes.

The inaugural event featured Mark Ecob, book designer and erstwhile art director at Canongate; Johanna Basford, a talented designer/illustrator; and Neil McGuire, from Glasgow agency AfterTheNews. All three talked about their work and their experiences of the industry, and chaired an informal Q & A afterwards.

You can check out the whole talk on vimeo here.
