The Design Museum’s Designers In Residence is one of the most important young creative talent schemes in the UK, and it’s been a real pleasure to be broadcast partner for the exhibition this year. Not only did we produce five films which you can watch at the show, but we are also running two events in the hallowed galleries of London’s design HQ.
The first one takes place on Tuesday October 14 and will bring you up close and personal with this year’s Designers In Residence – Ilona Gaynor, James Christian, Torsten Sherwood and Patrick Stevenson-Keating. Not only that but we’ve also invited three special gusts selected by the designers themselves; creatives who have informed and inspired the way they work. They are Erika Cross, Tobias Revell and Tommaso Lanza.
There’ll be free beer courtesy of the fine folk from Peroni and a chance to look round the show after hours. So come and join us to investigate how these four fantastic thinkers have responded and reacted to this year’s theme disruption and to find out a little more about them in a fun and informal atmosphere.
Tickets for the It’s Nice That Social are £14 and includes entry to the show; you can buy them here.
