Hi, hey, hello Gluggers!

Summer has arrived and yup that’s right.. our infamous Summer Party is back.

Join us for our annual summer celebration of creativity, friends, the industry and... you!

Doors will open at 5:30pm.

FutureDeluxe, Accept & Proceed, Together Design, MultiAdaptor & Here Design will each have a space in the garden so you can meet the teams, find out about them & tell them about yourself!

We'll then kick off a stellar line-up of talks and as always bring the summer party vibes with live art, Surface workshops & a BBQ.

Tickets are only £7 and include a beer + slice of pizza!

So grab a ticket and get summer off to the best start (before it's too late!). 

See you there,

Aleksandra gains a lot of inspiration from women around her as well as popular culture and memes. She works on both large scale and more modest sets and her clients include Virgin Atlantic, Kenzo, Nespresso, Honda and Haagen Dazs out of AMV, Wieden & Kennedy, JWT and DDB.
