So this weekend I took part in HOME’s show and tell programme. It has been set up as a platform to inspire the creative community which felt like a great way to give back a little. I presented along with Gemma May Latham, who discussed her fascination with ‘Flow’, a mate of mine Jon Massey and fellow designer Adam Stanway who spoke about Manchester Moleskine that they setup themselves, BBC R&D Technologist Rosie Campbell who spoke about facial recognition algorithms and teaching computer to see and the brilliant Mancunian Artist Jay EEgo who showed how he managed to come back from crime and drug addiction to become and brilliant and well known painter.
It was a fascinating and really inspirational afternoon and it would definitely be worth keeping an eye out and heading down to the next one when it’s on. I know I’ll be heading along. Well, I’ll be nominating a couple of designers for the next round of talks so I know it will be a great afternoon. I just want to say a massive thanks to Isabelle Croissant for setting it all up and Jack Woodcock for the nomination.
