SCDF - Brighton branch meeting

Yesterday I went to Lime to take part in the inaugral meeting of the SCDF's brighton branch.

Peter brought us together and we made our first steps to deciding what our aims would be and how it could learn from the already established branches in chichester and portsmouth. The new brighton steering group so far consists of lime, me, jake from brighton uni and mike from world achitecture news. we are hoping to add a couple more faces to the line up soon.

At this point we've outlined meetings and a launch event. I'm really excited by the prospect of developing the forum in to something that is recognised as a marque of excellence and helping to plug brighton in to the supposed 'national organisations' such as d&ad, design council and dba.

We've also got a RAD news story going out in their email newsletter soon, which is nice to see as a benefit of membership.
