Recently I went to a design festival in Shoreditch called Futurising. It was a great opportunity for creative graduates to find out about the design industry.

From the presentation of the event you could tell that creative people set it up. The chill out area outside was an array of colour and decoration, which felt very summery with bunting, balloons and deck-chairs.

As part of the event there was a wall where you could write in speech bubbles anything you liked. Bonny and I thought the concept was great. It was amazing to see all the different ways people responded, whether to illustrate inside or write something inspirational. I think this concept would be great in a cafe or shop, as it's an inspirational way of creating decoration in an interior space whilst also communicating ideas to the public.

Bonny's addition to the wall was very cool, and was inspired by a recent stall, which sold pants for poverty, just one of creative businesses that was part of the festival promoting fair-trade for clothing.
