Glug London presents 'Big Ideas, Beautifully Made'

  • February 20, 2014 · 6:00 PM

    enjoyed the event...glad we found the secrete 3rd room with live feed…always love a bit of creative plotting & scheming… ;))

    Great meetup. Insightful, funny, interesting and good to be in the company of so many beautiful strangers - aka fellow designers. Really enjoyed hearing about the different approaches & attitudes of other studios.
    Didn't get my "free beer" as they had ran out - to be fair I didn't expect a free beer so it didn't bother me, but I do wonder why there's not enough free beer to service the tickets sold.
    Further more, yes it was crowded, yes the projector could have had a better angle shot of the presentations - as it was a little hard to see - that said this is London and you have to accept that there's high demand for this kind of thing so it's hard to find a venue that will accommodate and be perfect for everyone. Didn't effect my experience & I'm very much looking forward to the next meetup. Hopefully some of the constructive negative feedback can be worked on to better an already good, if not perfect, experience.

    Well done chaps - keep up the good work.

    It's true, I dont think we really needed to be searched but 'designers in shoreditch drugs shocker' has been known to happen! I agree there were too many people for the main room but overall it was a good location to drink as well as meet fellow creatives. The overcrowding goes to show the demand for events like this so thanks for sorting it out.

    Lets not take it too seriously though, its not like we had to pay 500 quid for the ticket. You could still hear everything, it was interesting, informative and I went away with my brain ticking over a little bit faster thinking interesting thoughts. Speaking at things like this is a funny old game and you cant please everyone. You've just got to find a good balance - talk about yourself, talk about your work or talk around an idea - its a tricky old game.

    Definitely using animated gif's in my next presentation though, and i might even start referring to myself as gravy! See you next time.

      Thanks Adam, glad you enjoyed

    Great speakers. I think we can all learn a lot from the way they all presented and how to tell stories well. That is what it's all about - getting our ideas across with enthusiasm and passion, right.

    @Nick + Ian — Any ideas when/if you plan to post-up the talks from last night via Vimeo? (The people who struggled to see can also have a re-cap). Cheers guys.

    February 21, 2014

    • Nick C.

      Sure, usually takes a few weeks to edit

      February 21, 2014

  • jelly l.

    On a positive note - We thought that it was a super evening - So nice to be able to get so many creatives in the same room. We look forward to the next event Glug! :-)

    couldn`t see the visuals as i was having to watch on a projector_very poor evening_ not fair to us or the speakers

    February 21, 2014

    • Giancarlo B.

      wow is that all you can say as the organiser of the evening_i shouldn`t have to arrive early when paying for a ticket_ 1/3 of the people had to watch in a 2nd room. i`m shocked and won`t be coming back for more of the same. If you had read my other comments it is clear that it is the venue which was lacking and not the speakers

      February 21, 2014

    • Nick C.

      I won't cry over it

    What a great evening!! Great speakers - great turnout - Thank you Glug for taking the time to organise such a great event. Made me proud to be a part of the London creative!

  • LouiseStephenson

    The speakers were great and I really enjoyed their talks but the organisation of the event was extremely poor. There were far too many people for the capacity of the room and not letting us in the main room to get a seat until 10 minutes before it started was dangerous as everyone was being crushed in the hall. Considering it was a meetup, we should not have been searched at the door. I suggest choosing another venue next time. Shame, really as the content was good.

    February 21, 2014

  • Bernard

    Good night and great speakers. I particularly liked Man vs Machine and Simon Manchipp. Regarding the bad comments, I was in the first room watching the screen and it was good enough for me. It's hard to find the perfect venue for both talks and a ''notworking'' event. Cargo is definitely better for the latter. I think £7.50 including a free beer is worth the money.. good job guys!

    Got a spare ticket going - sadly I can't make it now - let me know if you want it - it's free to a good owner....

    • Jafar

      hiw nick sorry for not getting back to you in time. i had to rush out as soon as i got the ticket. Thank you so much dude!! Life saver(or glug saver hehe ;) ).

      February 21, 2014

    • Nick A.

      Haha - no worries man - glad it could go to someone!

      February 21, 2014

  • Pietro D.

    Next time It would be good to know the schedule of the event ahead of time. I had to leave earlier and didn't get the chance to hear some of the speakers I wanted to ;)

    February 21, 2014

  • Jo M.

    Not happy that the person I went with popped out of the venue then was allowed back in, although our hands had been stamped

    February 21, 2014

    • Nick C.

      Did you not like the person and want to be on your own perhaps?

      February 21, 2014

  • Matthew M.

    The Meetup was good but the only speaker who I actually took anything useful away from was Simon Manchip - the rest were interesting but really just informing about their studio or what they do/have done.
