New Designers 2013 - And So It Begins!


And so it begins... New Designers always begins with a white van and a whole lot of huffing and puffing and schlepping of MDF up and down stairs.  It's always hot and it's always sweaty and London is always loud and busy and big.  Success!  The cinema chairs, palms and popcorn have, as of this morning, exited the CGAA base room and materialised in the Business Design Centre.  Materialised is in fact quite the wrong word to describe the process of getting everything from Rochester to Islington. It doesn't quite convey the  Heath Robinson-esque spectacle of two senior lecturers and one technical tutor wheeling a row of cinema seats down the ramp of an underground car park on two sets of four casters...

When we left at six tonight, the plasma screens were on the wall, the concessions counter re-built, filled and sanded and the first phase of wiring installed.  It wouldn't be New Designers without a few unforeseen dramas and spilled milk (or spilled popcorn in this instance!), but as Scarlett O'Hara very famously said, 'Tomorrow is another day!'.
