Venue

The Old Library

Duration

40 minutes

Nowadays more and more creatives tend to follow the same processes, starting and finishing their projects on the computer. We try to find inspiration from other professionals, a convenient source that often leads us to an infinite loop.

Different design processes can lead to unique outcomes. The digital world offers us all these exciting tools, but it sometimes feels that it lacks a tactile materiality. The physical world can do so many amazing things, but it is the digital one that makes everything possible!

It is up to us to choose whether we want to be camouflaged within somebody else’s approach, or to discover unexplored areas of design through a journey into blending the analogue and digital worlds.

The Old Library

Located at The Custard Factory, in the heart of Digbeth, Birmingham’s Creative Quarter, The Old Library is a truly unique space. The original library first opened as one of Birmingham’s five free libraries in 1866, and it is now the only one still standing. The library’s doors closed to the public in 1940 and remained closed until 1990. Many of the Victorian period features have been recently restored, including vaulted ceilings and iconic arch windows – making the interior light and airy, and flooded with natural daylight.

The Old Library is easily reached by public transport, car, or about 10 minutes walk from Birmingham city centre.
