A multi-media exhibition produced through the collaborative efforts of Freshly Squeezed, a group of Nelson-based, internationally-practicing designers from various fields focuses on demystifying the world of and process of design. Comprised of three areas or ‘pods’ entitled Promote, Educate and Inspire, interpretative modules invite visitors to participate in a fun, interactive and innovative environment that explores the world of design and how it is applied in the world around us. This exhibition will delight viewers of all ages, from the seasoned design aficionado to those who have pondered a career in the field.
Exhibition sponsored by 2010 Legacies Now, Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art & History, Nelson & District Credit Union, Hall Printing and Nelson & District Chamber of Commerce.
Freshly Squeezed is a community of creative professionals who, within a non-competitive environment, share inspiration and knowledge about design, process and topics related to working in a creative field. Since 2004, Freshly Squeezed has been gathering once a month to discuss, educate, and inspire one another. From graphic, web and motion designers to photographers and architects, they gather to share in each other’s wisdom, stories and process. With over fifty members, the Freshly Squeezed community represents a wide variety of creative talent with over a hundred years of combined professional experience. Many of the members have relocated to beautiful British Columbia after holding positions at large creative agencies in urban centers such as Vancouver, San Francisco, New York City, Toronto and Paris.
