Hello Gluggers,

Talks Tickets


BUY: http://www.meetup.com/gluglondon/events/68977712/

It’s time to announce the full details of our next Glug entitled “Design is Business” at Cargo on July 12th 2012 – and BOY do we have a speaker lineup for this one! It could sell out in days…

As always for the talks part of the event seated tickets are limited to 200 only – so please snap them up here quick. The last two events have both sold out and this ones pretty special!

THEME – ‘Design is Business’

Let’s talk about wins, fails, how you did it, took the leap, grew the agency, worried yourself to shreds when it’s been tight on work, what makes a bad client, who’s been a good clients, what’s a process, how do we make it more fun, what’s the greatest piece of  work you’ve been part of? What’s next for us all?
– Why do you do what you do?

– How do you run a successful design practice?

– How do you get the work?

– What made you do it?

– What’s your opinion of where we are today?


We hope this Glug will inspire and illuminate.

Notworking™ Tickets



As always our Notworking area (the bar and outside terrace) will be open all night. We’ll have drinks, lovely bits of live art and pop up shops for this event all centered around our overarching theme – Design is Business!

Tickets for this Notworking area priced at the much more affordable £4.

Come along enjoy a few drinks, talk to friends and new people. Whatever works for you!

Also chat to the speakers after the event.

But here’s some brief highlights this event (more TBA):


Artful Consulting – Creative Business Clinic


Pete Bowker and his wonderful team of Creative Business consultants will have an area outside. A sort of “drop in” Creative Business Clinic where you can come and talk to his team about any issues, problems you as a small business are suffering.

The team are happy to offer free and impartial advice on the night and give you some valuable insights into how to overcome any issues you are facing.


Artful Clients Include: Studio Output, The Found Collective, NotToScale, Marshmallow Laser Feast

“There are lots of boring business consultants out there, but very few that get the Creative Sector like Artful!”



Portfolio Crit – Ask the experts!

We’re assembling a team of design and creative experts to talk through your portfolios. The work itself, but also the method you present this in. How can you come accross better and what do they look for from creative presentations?

Details of experts TBA here in the next few weeks
