These two friends who met at the university are super cool and inspirational.
They’re responsible for the Graphic Design Festival Scotland, which was started and organised by them last year. With no funds and no experience, they decided that it’d be a great idea to organise such an event, and just went for it! By finding sponsorships and other external help, they managed to put it together, and successfully completed the one week’s events, workshops and talks.
Since organising such event requires a lot of work, and about one year’s worth of planning; and doesn’t pay that well (perhaps due to the fact that it’s a free entry), they now want to focus on building their studio practice. With so many great contacts I’m sure they’ll be a success. I wish them all the best.
