Cardiff Design Festival 2012 is launching this friday, and there look's to be some great events taking place over the two weeks. I am going to try and get to as many things as possible but the things I am really looking forward to are Doodle Noodle, which has been setup by Matt Joyce the illustrator who has helped us out with the illustration this year's of Cardiff Design festival. Doodle Noodle is set to take place on saturday and sunday at Cardiff Design festival HQ at the Royal Arcade.

Also during the festival thinkARK will be hosting a second trade school which has been kindly hosted by indycube in town. They are looking for people to volunteer and teach so if you fancy getting involved have a look at the website http://tradeschool.coop/cardiff/class.

There is also a great series of events which is being run my Carolina surrounding the idea of cinema in odd places The living street mobile project should have some really great events in particular the one at Milgi sounds great.

While this is totally biased the evening I am most looking forward to is the social event that is our annual Naked Wales pub quiz. Which will take place on the 9th October at shot in the dark. It's rare designers actually get a chance to meet up and it's a great event for students meeting up with working designers.

There are also a whole host of other events that are run directly by the festival and it will be interesting to see who the winners are for this years Best of Welsh awards will be, and also get to hear some great people speak.

Hope to see some of you there.
