Lucid Team Attend ‘David Chaffey’ Seminar With Manchester Met Fashion Deparment


We are attending a Seminar this evening with the Manchester Metropolitan Fashion and Design Department whom we work very closely with in a number of key areas of the business.

This should be a great seminar for the freshest tips on how we can help our rapidly expanding client base within the e-commerce sector.

Over the past 10 years David has delivered Internet marketing training courses and completed Internet marketing consulting assignments for companies large and small in many countries.

He has also written a series of best-selling Internet marketing books and specialist E-consultancy best practice guides on E-marketing tactics like SEO and PPC.

Since 1994, when he was first hooked on the web, he has specialised in building his knowledge of Internet Marketing and business technology applications and sharing this knowledge with marketing professionals and students.

Really looking forward to this one….. should be great.

Nema Workshop – Bond Street Apartment

Amazingly open plan, light, New York style loft apartment. Originally two apartments, ‘Nema Workshop’ a design team from America made up of architects and designers completely overhauled the space and created this sprawling space of luxury inner city living.

The project was commissioned on behalf of an unnamed rock star and can be found in a landmark building on Bond St in New York.

Very nice.

Glenn Brown comes to the Lucid Studio

Super proud to announce the arrival of our eagerly anticipated limited edition Glenn Brown print. It’s being framed as we speak and will finish off the studio very nicely. I first saw this beautiful print when visiting Glenn Brown’s magnificent exhibition at The Tate and was paused by the beauty and depth of this mystifying print. There and then I knew had to have it for the studio, fast forward a year we have finally got round to purchasing the print and more importantly of all finding a home for it in the studio.

Glenn Brown is a rare find in the exciting world of the contemporary art market as he uses the original tools of the trade and creates masterpieces with his brush, oil paint and a canvas. Alongside such modern day greats as Lucien Freud his work with a brush is truly astonishing and places the short attention span of the modern day technology age on the shelf, to create works of art that must take years to complete. ‘I’m Hungry Lets Eat’ seen below is one of the many paintings in the wealth of canvases that make up this huge exhibition and another personal favorite.

Along with everyone else the Contemporary Art World has been hit hard by the recession and as a result, it somehow doesn’t feel as fast paced or ‘bling bling’ as it was becoming. In the decade that seemed to make everything seem small, slow and cheap and with commentators in great programs like BBC Four’s ‘The Contemporary Art Bubble’ (well, well worth watching) believing we will see an artwork reach a mind boggling $Billion. What will the next decade hold for contemporary art and global trade on a whole?

It’s going to be very interesting to find out.
