About the Blog

The LOCAL DESIGN blog is a creative visual diary with content created and contributed by leading local and offshore creatives and designers.

We want the creative community to hide their inhibitions, let their hair down and showcase whatever their eclectic heart’s desire. From the projects they are working on, the places they are visiting, their childhood memories, what music they are listening too, whatever makes them tick, it is a complete open online creative platform. Go on we dare you to pick up a camera and tell us your stories….

Along with this open-minded approach to the blog we will also be reporting on global and local design weeks, events, exhibitions, shows etc. with raw and real visuals alongside interesting insider perspectives.

We are very excited to see what will happen on these pages……
