If you are into design & development, want to learn more about your craft, and connect with interesting like-minded people, then perhaps the Designers Fiesta would be worth a visit.
Now in its seventh year, the Designers Fiesta 2016, created by new media training provider Academy Class, will take place on September 16th at the Hackney Picture House and will bring together a whole host of experts, mentors, designers, and developers.

Some of the top names on the roster who will be running interactive workshops include Paul Thompson, Alex McGibbon, Mellisa Love, Conrad Taylor and Emma Sexton. They will be joined by a whole host of other experts and speakers who will draw upon their own knowledge and experience of working within the creative world.
