We will discover new ways of looking, seeing and thinking, as well as new ways of disciplining our approach to creative design and recognising qualities and skills in ourselves which perhaps we have not yet fully harnessed.

About the event

How do some of the most respected designers harness their good ideas? Where do they source them? Does it work better being in beautiful rural countryside, or in the middle of a bustling urban place?

We search for inspiration to solve difficult problems, to design neat solutions, to be different from others, to create satisfaction and pleasure for our clients and ourselves with our ideas transformed into reality, and to respond to a new challenge with all our senses heightened and tickled. New ways of looking and thinking about things are essential to help us think outside the box, to be inventive, and to think big Noah-like ideas.

We will discover new ways of looking, seeing and thinking, as well as new ways of disciplining our approach to creative design and recognising qualities and skills in ourselves which perhaps we have not yet fully harnessed.
