Some great pics from Alan Inglis of last Friday’s @creativeexchange.scot meeting at the DCA, Dundee. Fun, informative, great CPD-value too, at a great venue. Thanks to all who came. Photo’s show our newly-expanded Committee, our morning visit to the DCA print studio, our fun Skype interview with Graphic Means director Briar Levit, the launch of our Two-Year Review designed by Stephen Malaney from the S Lanarkshire Council design team, David’s standing-down as Secretary to be replaced by East Lothian’s Louise Stewart, and the presentation of a bottle-of-wine prize to Dundee University’s design team for their impressive yearbook.

June Means Graphic Means

Friday, Apr. 27th 2018

We’re making plans for our next meeting at Dundee’s DCA, on 1st June. Highlights will include a cinema-screening of the film Graphic Means [a fascinating look at pre-digital graphic design] and a trans-atlantic chat with its director, Briar Levit. More details to follow, but for now make a date in your diary, digital or otherwise.

Fabulous Beeb

Tuesday, Mar. 20th 2018

We enjoyed a great visit to the BBC on Friday 9th March, including a presentation from the BBC’s graphics team, a tour of the news, weather, 3D and motion-graphics production areas, a full tour of the building, lunch in the canteen among a few well-kent broadcasting personalities, and a chance to meet several of those working in the design and production teams. Photographs from the day below.
