Design Collective in Central MK

Witan Studios members New Socks Media are holding a Sketch Meetup open to digital designers of all levels at Fourth & Fifth café on July 10th…

At Witan Studios, everything has been designed with your needs in mind. The sandstone building in Central MK is almost 18 months into its regeneration, which started in February 2017.

The landscaped courtyard is a quiet green spot hidden in the center of the city, with table tennis, a friendly WiFi cow and both Fourth & Fifth café and Thai Modern restaurant, in case you arrive with a serious appetite.

Since the rejuvenation of the space, the Studios has had 28 new companies join the community, with only four spaces left to offer other like-minded creatives and entrepreneurs.

The Studios boast to host workspace that works for you, and a vibrant community who can enjoy 24/7 access, a bookable boardroom, breakout spaces, showers, secure cycle storage and parking.

It’s easy to get started with the super simple all-inclusive packages on offer, that combine rent, service charge, insurance and 10Mbps broadband.

The price also covers the fully furnished spaces, complete with kitchens and all the mod cons. Plus, there’s a rolling programme of events to keep everyone inspired…

On the 10th July, Studio members New Socks Media will be hosting an official Sketch Meetup at Fourth & Fifth, with doors opening at 6.30pm.

New Socks is a Milton Keynes based digital agency, specialising in strategy, design and development of software and applications.

This event is a design Meetup and open to digital designers of all levels, who are interested in learning about Sketch, listening to talks from industry leaders, building a design collective and want to get involved in Designathons to help causes in the local community.

By registering to attend you will not only grow your design network, but New Socks Media will also be creating a group you can reach out to for advice or to offer mentorship to other designers.

At the first Meetup on the 10th July, Nicole from New Socks Media will be giving an overview of Sketch and how they use it to design products.

Francis from luxury fashion brand Net-a-Porter will also be in attendance, talking about how they use Sketch and how they approach design.

There will also be an exciting raffling off of a FREE sketch license, alongside welcome drinks available for everyone that attends.

Make sure to sign up via Meetup and search ‘Sketch Milton Keynes’, or contact hello@newsocksmedia.co.uk to book your place!
