Just a quick post while I enjoy my Waitrose smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwich - yeah, we're pretty posh round here. Anyhow, last week we all headed down to Northern Design Competition to check out the best talent our region has to over across a range of design disciplines, from motion graphics through to fashion.

Hosted by the legend that is Harry Gration, the night saw the culmination of some fantastic pieces of work, whittled down from 2,600 initial entries - which made for some fiercely contested categories. You can see a full list of the winners here.

It was great to get involved in the judging for this years event which has been going from strength to strength since it's inception 2006. I've got high hopes for next year's awards which will undoubtedly raise the bar yet again, making them a permanent fixture in the UK design calendar.
