OFFSET London 2015


OFFSET London is just round the corner (November 12th & 13th) and you’ll be glad to know there are a few tickets left, although I can’t see them being available for long. OFFSET London will be a two day event and there will be plenty to do with lots of awesome people to meet. Just be careful not to trip over any hipsters with it being held in Shoreditch Town Hall. :)

With over 2,500 attendees to its Dublin event each year, OFFSET has fast become one of the worlds most inspirational, educational and vocational conferences for the design and creative industries.

Representing industry at all levels, our speakers are key disruptors and influencers in their fields, driving everything from huge global campaigns to awe inspiring personal projects and will speak about their work, ideas and inspirations, giving audiences an insight into their practices and personal perspectives on their careers over the course of the two-day event. – Lisa Haran

You can find more info, tickets and the line up on the official OFFSET London website. It’s a really well run event and definitely worth attending.

Where to Find Comics in the UK and the State of Comic Book Retail in the US


I love comics, you love comics… Actually I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t love comics. But do you know where your local comic book store is? Recently I came across a map of the UK and Eire showing the locations of numerous comic book retailers. I’m pretty sure there are more out there than are shown on the map, but it does a good job of listing the ones that are on there.

There’s also an international comic shop map, but all it has is the name of the store without the website link and contact information.

While on the subject of comics, David Harper published a really interesting read on The State of Comic Book Retail. It includes some awesome infographics and does a really good job of summarising the pros and cons of owning or running a comic shop. I’m not going to tell you or reiterate what is says – go and read it!
