Refresh Teesside gathering some momentum

Refresh Teesside gathering some momentum

Refresh Teesside gathering some momentum

Refresh Teesside is a community of designers and developers based in Tees Valley working to refresh the creative, technical and professional culture of New Media endeavours in their areas. We aim to promote design, technology, usability and standards.

There are lots of Refreshing Cities around the world but only a couple here in the UK and it’s about time that changed. The drive behind digital media in the North East seems to be focused very much in Newcastle however Teesside is home to many up and coming digital media agencies and also many freelance web designers and developers.


We want to let people know that you don’t need to live down South to be considered a Web Professional in this country.

After searching for a long time it became apparent there was nowhere locally which met with point one of the Refresh Cities Manifesto – “Let’s Gather Great Minds”… so Refresh Teesside was born.

The Refresh manifesto:

* Let’s Gather Great Minds
* Let’s Share All Of Our Knowledge
* Let’s All Grow And Learn
* Let’s Promote Local Talent
* Let’s Make Our Cities Better

Great! I’m interested – whats next?

We’ve just set the ball rolling and we need your support! We are looking for people who can regularly help with organizing events, venues and anyone interested in being partners or sponsors.

At first we don’t envisage anything mind blowing, however if you like the idea of getting together and enjoying a relaxed drink and a chat then let’s get it started!
