It’s back and so are we!

The sunnier months are fast approaching, which means one thing – festival season! Yes, Leeds Festival, Glastonbury, but also design festivals, specifically BDF, Birmingham’s very own festival of creativity… Oh yeah, that’s right! The big Birmingham Design Festival is back.

From the 8th-9th June 2023, Birmingham’s creative quarter will take over the city with this year’s theme ‘imagination.’

Made to inspire anyone who loves design, admires creativity and is eager to explore innovation, BDF puts on workshops and talks filled with anything and everything weird and wonderful.

Speakers include Brian Collins, Marta Cerdà Alimbau and Oliver Jeffers. And if you want to try something new, workshops involve Anthony Burrill’s Print Workshop, Venessa Scott’s Mural workshop, and Ed Barrett’S Animade Frames Workshop.

But the best part? RBH are proud design district sponsors! You see, at RBH, we care… about people, and about creativity. Nurturing talent has been fundamental to who we are since we started almost 30 years ago. We love BDF because it’s a celebration of all that we find important.

Better yet, we’re not just sponsoring BDF, we’re getting stuck in too! Living and breathing our values, we’ll be setting up a portfolio surgery to help nurture future talent. And that doesn’t just mean young talent straight out of university! It’s for anyone looking for industry advice or the chance to have their portfolio reviewed in a setting infinitely less stressful than an interview.

So, whether you’re a like-minded creative needing some guidance or you’re just after a second opinion on your portfolio, come and pay our portfolio surgery a visit at BDF.

Alright! Alright! Alright! The way to SXSW

I’m sat in a 100-year-old cinema in Austin, Texas, about to watch the premiere of John Wick 4, and Keanu Reeves – yes, really – brushes past my seat. Later that night I’ll be in a small venue to watch New Order blow the roof off. Later that week I’ll attend talks by Robert Downey, Jr and William Shatner. I’ll enjoy free Guinness at the Irish Music Embassy on St Patrick’s Day. I’ll walk 200,000 steps, see countless talks and attend 27 gigs in 11 days.

So, how did this happen?
