A 'bostin' day at Birmingham Design Festival
After lunch, the team experienced a frank and honest talk from Russell Clayton of Rosie Lee on how they as a team use their differences of opinion to create some of the best creative work for the likes of Nike, Samsung and Heineken. He explained that he and his fellow director Mark are the complete opposites in so many ways, and that this often causes conflict between them. However, they use these contrasting views to create some of the best creative work for their clients. What was also interesting is how they both manage to run their business together despite one being located in New York and the other in Frome – Devon!
The pièce de résistance for the team took place during the evening, with presentations on advertising and branding from design heroes such as Marina Willer from Pentagram, Trevor Beattie, advertising extraordinaire and Norwich’s very own Jim Sutherland of Studio Sutherl&.

Bidding a fond ‘tara-a-bit’ to the festival, the team have come away feeling truly inspired and loaded with new knowledge and insight. Always looking to develop what we do professionally, we can apply some of these new learnings and inspiration to our very own projects.
