SOME of the biggest names in design and marketing will meet in Huddersfield for a major event.

James Sommerville, co-founder of internationally-acclaimed design agency Attik is among the speakers at #NoteToSelf, which will be held at 7pm on Thursday, May 19, at the Media Centre in Northumberland Street.

Attik was founded in Huddersfield before expanding to set up offices in London and in San Francisco and Santa Monica in the USA.

The event, which is open to creative professionals and undergraduates, will also hear talks from Richard Sharp, co-founder of The SHARP Agency; Ben Holden, creative director of Manchester-based web design and development company Cahoona and Huddersfield-based illustrator Jeffrey Bowman.

The event has been organised by former Huddersfield students David Moore and Chris Roberts, who said they were inspired by attending creative seminars and events while freelancing in Manchester.

Said David: When I was a student at Huddersfield University, I would have loved the chance to find out what inspired and influenced someone like James Sommerville or Richard Sharp but we didn't have any events where we could go and listen to people in the creative industry.
