with Allie John (yello brick) and Russ Morris (Big Fan)
It's nearly time for another Rabble Talks, the bi-monthly social event for creative peeps in Cardiff!
This time, we are talking all about games, including video games, street games, mass gaming events and mind games (just kidding on the last one!)
We'll have two guest speakers who have years of experience in the games industry for you to listen to, a smattering of games for you to play, a fully-stocked fridge of beers and plenty of chances to mingle, make new friends and have a laugh.
Freelance interactive developer Russ Morris has gone from being a games-loving kid to actually becoming a guy who makes award-winning games for today's kids (as well as creating high-end branded content and architectural visualisations).
Russ will be talking about how to use games to help you with creative processes, develop ideas and create real-time interactive content for any industry.
Allie John is a producer at yellobrick, a creative agency that makes immersive experiences through digital platforms and live events. She has a beautiful whippet called Bobby and a hatred of cotton wool.
Allie will explore how we can reclaim space both online and offline through games, play and making social connections. For the last seven years, Allie has been looking at how patterns, stories and games can be brought together to create unique experiences.
