Today marks the start of Design Manchester 2015, so we thought we’d give you our top three run down of what you need to see at this years festival.


Manchester In Mind

On display at Kosmonaut until 22nd October, Manchester In Mind is a collection of original print designs that explore and celebrate the significance of Manchester’s minds. The works were selected by the likes of Clint Boon and Stanley Chow who has been featured on our blog a few times, many of the prints are available for a very reasonable price and entry is free so it’s well worth making the short journey down from Piccadilly train station.

Manchester Print Festival

After the success of last year the Print Festival will now run over at a full weekend hosting over 50 stalls selling affordable work and hosting various work press in screen printing, letterpress, badge making Origami.

Manchester Moleskine

Closing the festival with a bang, Manchester Moleskine looks set to be a fun packed evening of music, live illustration and general creativity with a quirky little idea running underneath it.

An A5 Moleskine® sketchbook will be hand delivered to 52 diverse Manchester based creatives inviting them to contribute a unique piece. The exhibition will showcase a selection of the work inside the books.

Koo Jeong A x Wheelscape: Evertro











The ongoing arts and culture festival, Liverpool Biennial, has commisioned South Korean artist Koo Jeong A to design a skate park as part of the Biennial’s commitment to work in Everton Park. The Park not only features the ideas of Koo Jeong A, such as her familiar use of diamond shapes, but also is influenced by the ideas of young people in North Liverpool and local skaters.

The design is certainly intriguing so a day trip down to Everton would be well worth your while, however stick around until the evening and you’ll see the park in its full glory as it’s the UK’s first glow-in-the-dark skate park. Whether you’re eight or eighty, you can’t say that doesn’t sound cool.
