    TEDx Brayford Pool (Lincoln) - Branding, Design & PhotographyI heard that Lincoln was having its first TEDx event (An independently organised TED Talks event) and I jumped at the chance to be part of this amazing initiative.

I had so much fun on the project and am pleased to say the event went amazingly well.
