This episode is a little bit different. Sebastian Stephenson has been working on Dub Web Fest all weekend so he managed to record one of the presentations. The presentation is by Jack Murray, CEO of MediaHQ. It about how to create insanely engaging content. There is a lot more to it. John goes from talking about weather you are lettuce business or apple business (not an Apple business) to injected creatively into your working life. We also have reports on a new fashion start up called Nu that looks at what happens after you have brought a piece of clothing and we check in on some of the print works on show at the Dublin Art Book Fair.
Segment 1: Dublin Art Book Fair 2015
The Dublin Art Book fair is in its 5th year now. It presents and sell magazines and books about the art world but also books and magazines that are artworks in of themselves. The scope of the fair is national and international but when I went and talked though some of the works at the fair, me and Sophie Behal, curator of the Dublin Art Book Fair, focused on the print based artworks made right here in Dublin.
Segment 2: Nu
Most fashion business that market themselves for their ethical conduct of business, usually focus on clothing from them but Nu which is launching on the 22nd November is looking at what happens after you buy a garment. Call it Ethical Retailing. Nu has been shortlisted for various entrepreneur awards in the lead up to its launch. So what do Nu do? well I spoke to Asling Byrne, one of the founders to tell me what they are going to be doing.
