This November 22nd we're hosting a mini Designival at Camp And Furnace in Liverpool - supported by ACME/Liverpool Vision.
It's part lectures from some great names in design, part networking event and social and also a launch event for the return of Designival proper in July 2014 - a special summer edition as part of the International Festival of Business.
But though the event is mini (as is the ticket price), the speakers certainly aren't.
We're welcoming the internationally renowned Erik Kessles of KesselsKramer, Matt Webb the CEO, Principal and co-founder of BERG, and acclaimed illustrator Paul Davis. You can find out more about both here.
After that, our good friends at KIN will be hosting a networking event followed by one of Camp And Furnace's legendary Food Slams.

We’ll be kicking off our Friday schedule with a designer breakfast sponsored by the…
