Yesterday i got the chance to escape from the studio and head in to brighton to meet peter spence. peter is the founder and director of the south coast design forum, which has successfully launched two branches in portsmouth and chichester. i met peter to talk about the forum's next step which is to set up a committee in brighton.
having spoken to peter about his plans and the ways in which the brighton branch can operate, i've signed up to join the steering committee. i can see there are some really good opportunities to influence the regional design community and how it plugs in to groups like the dba, the design council, the d&ad and csd. it may also create opportunities for us to help bring more business in to the area and provide some really valuable training and events for designers in the area.
