I am out and about all day visiting the showrooms and being wowed and confused by the installations.

I’ll be driving around in the new Mini Countryman, so if you see me – just look for our lovely photographer Conor Clarke weilding a big camera – stop and say hello.

This past week I’ve been chatting to the creatives and the showrooms to get the inside word on what they’ve been planning for Designday®. So all through the day I’ll be posting a few short Q&As giving you a bit of insight into the ideas and effort that went into the installations to get them ready for the big day.

Enjoy!
