Top agency launches creative event for the West

thread event

THREAD aims to bring together the creative community of the South West of England

As a designer, there's a whole host of essential design events (opens in new tab) every year to sink your teeth into. Here at Creative Bloq, we always welcome new starters when it comes to hosting events so we were thrilled to learn that Bristol-based design agency Fiasco Design (opens in new tab) have decided to launch a quarterly creative event.

THREAD (opens in new tab) aims to bring together the creative community of South West England through events, talks and workshops.The first event, ‘From Humble Beginnings’, will feature talks from Spencer Buck - co-founder of the multi award-winning Taxi Studio (opens in new tab) and creative director, designer and bike enthusiast John McFaul (opens in new tab), who will discuss the process of setting up an agency, the jobs that went wrong and the lessons learnt along the way.

Creative director Ben Steers (opens in new tab) explains, “We’ve been mulling over the idea for an independent creative meet-up style event for almost a year. It seemed strange that with such a strong creative scene in Bristol there wasn’t a platform for creatives to come together on a regular basis, chat and swap ideas".
