An incredible amount of work goes into creating a TEDx experience and TEDxBrixton is no exception. With this years’ theme being so full of colour shape, it was down to our Executive Producer and Stage Designer to visualise and create a kaleidoscopic atmosphere that works seamlessly with the iconic TED brand. From the staging and venue design to the way finding and external branding, every detail was uniquely crafted by this talented team whose knowledge of events and design ensure TEDxBrixton 2015 leaves a lasting and impactful legacy.
1. Tell us a bit about your background? I’m the partnerships manager, which means I look after our relationships with local businesses and sponsors.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I’ve lived her for a while now and this answer changes weekly, but at the moment I love hot yoga classes at Fierce Grace, after which I stagger down the road to Lucy’ Juices for a pick me up. As I expect most people who live here say, Brixton Market is a favourite spot – Fish Wings and Tings is an institution and Dave from Market Row wines will always find you a great bottle. Oh, and Three Eight Four on Coldharbour Lane does the best cocktails I can find.3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? I’ve been working with a lot of local businesses this year and the theme has been very meaningful for a lot of people, as it represents the mash-up of old and new that Brixton is currently experiencing.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? A few! Currently switching, depending on my mood, between Tim Jackson’s Prosperity without Growth (he has a great TED talk by the way) and Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient, which is a favourite of my dad’s, so he’s chuffed I am finally reading it.5. What’s your favourite TED talk? An all time great and one that I always pass on to others is Jackson Katz – Violence Against Women: It’s a Men’s Issue. Heavy title I know, but just a genius argument and one that never fails to spark debate.

I found the easiest way to start was to make a pattern on paper first of what ever shape you want your ornament to be (circle, square, heart) or you could even make a snowman or Santa. Then cut out you paper pattern and trace it on the cork-board, now your ready to cut out your ornament. When cutting the cork board just be careful it breaks easily. Next punch a whole at the top of your ornament, this will be where you hang your ornament from. Now for the fun part, grab a bunch of puffy paints in all different colors and began decorating and designing your own unique ornament. Once the ornament is dry you can tie a piece of ribbon through the whole at the top, this will be your hanger.

The summer is coming to an end and students are preparing for a new school year. The excitement begins and most students look forward to doing their back to school shopping. Most, if not all, welcome the idea of being able to decorate their school lockers and spend tons of time thinking about the perfect idea. There are others, however, that do not spend as much time thinking about decorating their locker. Instead, those students want to find something quick, fast and cool to accessorize their lockers if they choose to at all.
