Big news this week is to report on the success of UX London. Thanks to Kate and Andy B for pulling off such a fantastic event.

Graham, Mikey, Rich and Jess have been heads down getting the first phase of an exciting story telling project with the Wellcome Trust delivered. Late nights, bad jokes and lots of coffee have been the order of the day.

Tessa has gone off galavanting to Barcelona where she will mostly be wearing her rucksack on her front, for safety reasons.

Jeremy has been working on some dConstruct-related shenanigans as well as travelling to America where he will be doing the closing keynote at Rustbelt Refresh in Cleveland .

Mr T, Box, Bates, Jonboy and Mark have returned to the fold from their extended stays in Copenhagen. It is great to have them back in the office, there have been not nearly enough burger debates recently. Although the newly founded Breakfast Club is gathering momentum, it is still by invitation only and the relentless face-off for the breakfast crown rumbles on (currently granola and fruit vs full english, but the post black pudding dip is tipping the scales).

Benjammin has established himself nicely at Clearleft and is working on a really exciting online banking service for a popular bank in Northern Europe. He has also indoctrinated people in the ways of the standing desk, they are literally popping up everywhere.

Andy P has just kicked off a project with a lovely client of ours - the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, along with a new request for work being received this week. An interesting service design challenge to get our teeth into.

Our very own Rich is living the dream over in Faenza at Kerning. This ‘is the first international conference in Italy dedicated solely to typography and web typography’ so totally up Rich’s street.

Ben and Viv are preparing for the kick off session with a huge well known publisher on a really interesting new project. More details on this later!

Sophie has been meeting with various people from Brighton Digital Festival about events we might host at 68 Middle St in September. She has also been planning our Clearleft strategy day which is happening at the end of June.

Finally, I have been planning the next Clearleft Hack Farm, more information to follow in the coming weeks as a plan takes shape. Order the Malbec now!
