‘Free Desk Here‘ is a new initiative asking creative agencies to offer a desk for free in their agency. That’s completely free and not in exchange for work.
The campaign is supported by the graphic artist and fellow Glugger, Anthony Burrill.
Everyday for the next 2 weeks Open Studio Club will release a new free desk from a group of award winning creative agencies from around the world that are supporting the campaign. Our first agency to list is Moving Brands in London.
All agencies are invited to take part if they have a free desk available. The first 50 agencies to list a free desk on openstudioclub.com will receive a signed, limited edition Anthony Burrill screen print.

Patterns follow us everywhere; they can be present in our creative work; how we approach life and its many challenges, as well as in how we work, socialise and play. Our April Glug event will hear from a variety of creatives working in different disciplines talking about the patterns in their everyday.
ShellsuitZombie’s new recruits have arrived and they’re hungry for a party.
After scouring the land for the UK’s best talent in the world of graphic design, illustration and journalism, ShellsuitZombie is ready to present you with a new crack team of bright young things, ready and raring to take over the initiative for this year.
“Who are ShellsuitZombie?” I hear you ask. Well, we’re a bunch of ruddy do-gooders with attitude, with a common goal to show the current breadth of creative talent in the UK. We provide young creatives with exposure, advice and platforms to showcase their work.
This will be damn good fun, so make sure you pop along fellow Glugger Jenny Theolin is curating.

Proudly present - Lolcat – Teh Exhibishun
A group art show exploring the weird and wonderful world of lolcats.
We’ve brought together an array of cool cats and witty kitties – including graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, animators and writers. Ignoring the crudely makeshift LOLCAT aesthetic, each of these artists has come up with their unique take on the theme to create a piece of beautiful, amusing and exquisitely crafted LOLCAT art.
More info: http://www.lolcattehexhibishun.com
The exhibition takes place at The Framers Gallery with 50% of all proceeds going to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
Happy New Year dear Gluggers, we hope you’ve had a lovely break

21st February – Glug London Presents ‘The Collaboration Economy’
The creative world in which we work is growing. There’s more tech, more devices, more styles, more formats in which we can deliver our work. Very few of the really amazing experiences we see are the result of any single creative or organisation. Most are created by close collaboration of many skills and disciplines across multiple organisations and individuals. This evening of talks brings together five top players in the creative industry who came together to create Web Lab, as series of interactive installations connected to the web live at the Science Museum in London.
