Over two months after, it’s high time to refresh your memories and remind you of the interactive design exhibition we organised early September with a three minute video directed by Gaetan Saint-Remy of Sep Stigo Films. The three opening nights were as good a success as we had hoped for (this being our first truly “Word” event), with close to 650 people coming to say hello and no suicides, emergency room visits nor DIY disasters to speak of (although we did get the odd drunk trying to slap a lawsuit on us for being hit by a paper plane).

Dance moves, envelopes, business cards and perfect songs. The three days (and the rest of the month for that matter) had somewhat of a kindergarten feel to it, with cissors and felt pens the weapons of choice.
