It’s been a bit quiet at Clearleft HQ as various folk have been doing exciting things off-site…

Clocking up more air miles, Andy B, Andy T, Jess and Jon were again in Copenhagen for our Nordic project. Jeremy is currently galivanting around America, regaling crowds of Florida-bound conference-goers at An Event Apart Orlando, Beyond The Desktop, and ConvergeFL. Next up he’ll be speaking at An Event Apart San Francisco.

Closer to home, Andy B, Rich, James ’n’ James, Sophie, Ben S and Andy T gadded to a very swish beach house in Angmering for a couple of days of company strategising. Rumours of a moonlit midnight hot-tub session can be neither confirmed nor denied.

Ant’s highlight of the week was bobbing up to London to visit our clients The Wellcome Trust - the longform digital storytelling project has reached its end with us, and is now in its final stages with them. Yesterday Andy P, Viv, and Ben W were in London too, running a UX 101 workshop for a group of students at Ravensbourne College (Andy P has also been talking to Young Rewired State about plans for the Brighton hub for 2015 - plus he's been added to the mentors list for imparting webby wisdom to children aged 12-16). Today it’s Graham, Mark and Andy P who’ve got their learning hats on - they’re at ace Brighton conference Full Frontal.

One person who has been busy here at Middle Street is Tessa, who’s been making sure everything’s ship-shape for the second week of Software Testing workshops that have been running downstairs in the Auditorium. They seem to be having a merry time - and Tessa has served 185 lunches!

In other office-bound activity, when not running their workshop, Andy P and Ben W have been getting ready for the next phase of a client project which starts next week (oh and it’s worth noting that Ben W managed to avoid getting singed in any of Lewes’ extreme bonfire night frivolities). Meanwhile I’ve been beavering away on plotting and planning for next year’s conferences… just wait until you see the extraordinarily lovely UX London site that Mikey’s been working on!
