For the first time the University of Salford art & design show was launched at their expensive facility over in Media City. For the graphics department this was a pre-curser to the 'secret' show in Manchester's Northern Quarter. An impressive building and layout it was with mezzanine floors and a staircase to 'heaven' it would appear.
The editor happened to catch a couple of guys from Love Creative who were 'tweaking' up the quite amazing digital video board where by scanning the QR code and then following that to a website and clicking on 'draw' you could create a pattern on your mobile phone and send it to the bigger digital screen on display. Wow.
As ever there was a good exhibition of work from graphics, advertising, design futures and MINT - only thing lacking was people . . . maybe it was the driving rain.
