Digibury

Our monthly meet-up event for digital and creative types takes place on the second Wednesday of every month in Canterbury.

  • Join us to listen to talks, watch demos and learn more about tech, art, design, and science - basically stuff that makes us go 'wow'. 

    Digibury takes place at the Gulbenkian in Canterbury every month.

    From typography to front end frameworks, April's Digibury will focus on design. Deeson Web designer Rachael Case will explain how to transition from print to web design - without compromising creativity - while hardcore designer Hannah Pilbeam delivers a caffeinated introduction to design: Pair fonts like a pro, grid like a thug and colour like there's no damn tomorrow... plus more!

    Since the start of Digibury 2012, we've had over 100 fascinating talks on all things digital, techie and creative. But what then? Where do these great ideas end up? Well, we decided to have a special "Where are they now?" Digibury, so watch this space to find out who's coming back to share their story!

April Digibury

This month we're focusing on design.

The transition from print to web design can, for many designers, be a daunting prospect. In the first talk, Deeson designer Rachael Case will turn this fear on it’s head, highlighting how understanding HTML and CSS, coupled with established print design disciplines and foundations, can help create well-rounded, relevant designers fit for the digital age. The second talk will be delivered by designer Hannah Pilbeam. Entitled "Design for hackers" it promises to be a caffeinated introduction to design: Pair fonts like a pro, grid like a thug and colour like there's no damn tomorrow. Third talk to be announced!
