Creative Twinning - Inspire and Unite Showcase

So the last Friday in October was the date of the Creative Twinning event - Inspire and Unite - a showcase of Creative Twinning Designers from the East Midlands and Karlsruhe in Germany. Location - The Space, Nottingham Contemporary. Here's my little review of the day.


The purpose of the day was to bring together all of the Creative Twinning Designers, along with those taking part from our twinned town of Karlsruhe in Germany, as well as the Creative Twinning Partners, Designer Forum , Future Factory, Design Factory and South Notts College, and it gave us the chance for an informal mingle with students from South Notts College, to taker part in workshops throughout the day, to meet representatives from leading creative businesses in Nottingham and invited members of the public who attended the evening Showcase.
My Showcase
 All of the designers were allocated a stack of pallets, which gave us a unique and innovative platform on which to showcase our work. I was really pleased with how my stand turned out, and think the pallettes worked really well. Below are the images of each of the designers who took part in the day.

So a great day was had by all, it was a great opportunity to showcase the talent of our East Midlands Creative Collective to all who visited throughout the day and a chance to chat to potential customers and make contacts, and generally just spend some quality time with other great creative people. I'll be looking forward to meeting up with everyone again.

I'll be featuring some of the Creative Twinning participants over the next few weeks, to have a look at their work, find out a bit more about them, and why they applied to be part of this exciting collaboration. So watch this space....
