Meet, Chat, Create.
New Year means maintaining good practice, old and new.
First thing on my 2013 list is a move to Toad's Caravan, an eclectic studio space home to Glasgow's creative professionals. I'm all moved in, with my own lamp and everything, and am enjoying the chat and company.
My year will be kicking off with some big launches with TrueNorth and Neri Karra Talks both going live over the next month or so.
An old/new practice that needs some love this year is 'networking'. As I've discussed before, I hate this word, too contrived and impersonal. I want to make an effort to get out there and talk to some genuinely interesting folk about what they do.
This is where 'Creative Coffee' has come from. As a wee side project, I'm going to invite creative types to meet me for nothing more than a drink and good, wholesome chat. Perhaps with the idea of creating a 'blog bank' of stories, experiences and inspirations, CC will hopefully get people actually talking.
If you are interested in CC'ing - let's talk.
