Like to create and make stuff?

Tired of yawny creative processes? Fancy a challenge to see how much you can make live in 48hrs?  Want to help some disruptive social innovators be more disruptive? Enjoy a party?

If so then come and do some good for nothing on the weekend of 20th May.

We have 3 cracking briefs from 3 game changing ventures.

There will be food and drinks a plenty, DJ’s and music.....possibly dancing.

We’ve got lots of ace people already coming.

But we’re still on the hunt for a few more makers and creative folk.

Designers, moving image people, film-makers, developers, technologists, photographers, illustrators.

Craftspeople.

It’s 48 hrs of your time .

Which we massively appreciate.

That’s why we make it a lot of fun.

And give you treats.

And beer.

And the good thing is, the work that you create will go live.

There’s no yawny ‘brand board’ to pleasure.

No brand onions to restrict you.

Just a bunch of folk with the tools of their trade doing some good for nothing.

Here’s what some people said about the last gig:

'Turbo-charged!'

the experience was such a positive one - so good to get out of your daily routine and do something different with like minded people. I'm bored going to talks and lectures, getting together and doing stuff is so more satisfying’

‘Faster, less proving of points, people wanting to help each other rather than hinder. A general sense of enthusiasm and positivity. People sharing skills, listening to what others had to offer.’

Working with and chatting to more people in one day than I may do in a working year (though I do work at home!)...’

‘Made me feel like design was a worthwhile skill to have. That it’s something useful that helps people communicate their message. Really enjoyed it, felt very uplifted.’

‘I felt a little lost to begin with and didn't think my skills would really fit in but i found my stride and niche and felt like I'd made a real difference by the end of the day’

‘Exciting, interesting, hectic...’

the openness of the 'clients' was a massive thing. forming proper partnerships with them, and not having to navigate irrelevant brand guidelines or complex sign-offs, meant so much more was possible.’

having a team of ambitious but similarly motivated people with different skills and from different backgrounds also enabled more collaborative ways of working’

Good for Nothing is a think/hack/do creative collaboration event thing and it sort of happens a bit like this….
