In December we went public with a project that myself, Joe and Zoe have been working on for the past several weeks. Something that myself and Joe have been talking about for around three years now. Recent events locally spurred us on to make the jump to finally making it happen.

We launched Design Exchange Nottingham, a new monthly web design focused meetup aimed at bringing renowed speakers and local speakers together to inspire and excite our community.

We did this for several reasons:

1) The death of the web design community in Nottingham has been greatly exaggerated.
