Good for nothing’s latest gig at Hyper Island

Hyper Island was the rather lovely venue yesterday for the latest gig from Good for Nothing‘s girls crew. As always, it was fantastic to meet so many new people, coming together over just a few hours, and getting through an amazing amount of stuff to help budding social enterprises.

As a collective, we worked on all sorts of stuff from branding to marketing, research, strategy, target markets and finances. We even had a bash at graphic design, as we didn’t have a designer (do you know one? Get them to sign up for the next gig!). I don’t think any of us will be taking up logo design any time soon after that, but at least there’s now a brief for a designer to work from.

Vegetarian community cafe Cowherds provided a a hearty curry lunch for us (thanks guys!) and it was great to see Paula and Jon again after meeting them at a previous gig. I’ve booked a table for one of their upcoming Bistro nights and am really looking forward to it, their food is amazing and it’s great to see them going from strength to strength.

It was a good opportunity to designate myself as official photographer, and it was and nice to practice photographing people – something I enjoy and do a fair amount of on Market Street in Manchester but it’s quite different when you’re having to be sneaky 🙂

Good luck to both ventures, Shapeless and Modst Fashion – hope what we did was helpful. And thanks to Jo, Rach and Bex for organising another great event – hope you’re feeling better Bex!
