hot spots

So... at the beginning of this project the class was split into 2 groups and we were sent on hotspot visits to get some info as to how other people market themselves and if they use blogs.

So first we went to Not Just Design where we met with Andy Rice, who is a design consultant. He spoke to us about various projects he had been part of, including designing a new bar/restaurant called The West House which is on the corner of South Tay Street in Dundee which he took us to see. He told us that "design is in everything" and that there are no limits to design, even if you are specialized in one field, you could put your design skills to anything. One of my main questions was "why did you stay in Dundee?" his reason was family. It is quite comforting to know that although he stayed in Dundee, which isnt necessarily a city that people would think of as a design capital, he and his company have becoming hugely successful!

Not Just Design is down the stairs in the DCA and holds many different courses and classes for people to become more creative and gain wonderful, artistic skills. They are helping invest in creative people for the future which I think is greatly important and encouraging for creative people
