What is this thing?


With so many UX-related events around, it felt time to put some focus back on the visual side of design. Whatever you may call it - UI design, graphic design, digital design - there's a lot to talk about, so let's talk about it

This meetup is local and free, and looks to help designers of every persuasion show their work, share their methods, learn new practices and make new contacts.

Made possible by


  • What is it?

    F+F is a Brighton-based meet-up for local designers to meet, critique, learn and discuss all things related to visual, UI, app and graphic design.

  • How is it structured?

    Each event will start with beer and mingling, followed by two 30 minute talks, concluded with pizza and more beer and more mingling.

  • Who runs it?

    F+F is MC'd by Jon Aizlewood, Visual Designer at UX agency Clearleft. He'll be introducing speakers and curating topics for each meetup.

  • I'm interested in speaking. What do I do?

    F+F is a free event, so speakers are volunteering their time to practice their talks, extend their message, or just rant about something they want off their chest. Get in touch with Jon for more information.

  • Why does this thing exist?

    Design feels underserved in the community. There are a load of UX events, and devs have their fair share, but oddly, visual design feels left out.

  • Sounds good. What next?

    Stay tuned to the twitter account, website and your inbox for news and updates. We'll be announcing our first event soon.
