It opened with a bright young thing and closed with a grumpy old curmudgeon, and inbetween Semi-Permanent once again delivered a host of designy inspiration. Thankfully, for those unfortunate enough not to have been exposed to all this inspiration in the flesh, our friends at Design Daily picked the brains of the stars of the show, a couple of whom had some very wise words for Kiwi marcommers.

Designers, animators, advertisers, marketers and possibly even a few hip accountants don’t have too long to wait until the 2010 edition of Semi-Permanent starts squeezing some creative juice. And Nicolas Roope, an all round digital and design ideas guy from the UK who set up Poke London, retro phone company Hulger and this cool t-shirt blog, is venturing to New Zealand to speak at the event. He took time out from his busy schedule of coming up with awesome things (and from being the UK’s Webby ambassador, a member of the Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences and a member of the UK Coolbrands board) to have an e-chat with StopPress.
