Chichester Design celebrates SCDF fifth anniversary
We did a good job on our showcase (thanks team). We had a big Mac set up showing examples of our web design and development work, including for local companies Summersdale Publishers, Harbour Cars, Vanilla Catering & Events and Rostand. We also had a few panels on the wall, including a big Chichester Design logo and an outline of our main services.
Wayne Hemingway, the SCDF chairman, gave a typically forthright speech on what the forum had achieved and what it should be doing in the future. He spoke about how we need to be influencing the environment in which we live and how one of the forum’s recent successes had been the redesign of a footbridge over the A27. Essentially, a bad design was replaced with a good one.
The liveability of design is obviously something very close to Wayne’s heart and he made the point that the SCDF needs to be more political going forward. I think it’s hard to argue with a call to have more design-minded people in decision-making positions, such as on local councils. We shall see.
All in all a good week at the showcase – David Kester, CEO of the Design Council gave a good talk on Wednesday night about the forum and the importance of design and creatives in general (we popped along to that too!) – and from what I hear, it might be popping up in other places along the south coast in the coming months. Look forward to it.
