Manchester PT where treated to an excellent guest lecture spot by desiger Lee Davies from outstanding Sheffield design studio Peter & Paul on Monday night. Lee ran them through a few projects, giving valuable insights into the process behind dealing with client expectations and achieving a successful design outcome.
This week saw the infamous Pictoplasma Festival in Berlin. In 2006, Paul Heys of The University of Huddersfield and myself, set up an educational based collective (Crim Collective) of design and illustration students, this year we were invited to take part in the festival, so I flew out with 4 students and set to work transforming an incredible building in the heart of Berlin's Mitte district, as part of the Pictoplasma Character Walk.
An amazing time was had, creating the exhibition and mingling with many of the other Pictoplasma artists. If you ever get chance to visits Berlin I suggest timing it around this event held each year, it's a mix of an incredible atmosphere, incredible work set to the backdrop of an incredible city!
