CR Tweetup

Thanks to everyone who came along to the Design Museum last night for the first ever CR Tweetup. Free drink, a free Moleskine and Lego – what more could you want?

Thanks to everyone who came along to the Design Museum last night for the first ever CR Tweetup. Free drink, a free Moleskine and LEGO® – what more could you want?

Some of CR’s 179,000 Twitter followers took over the Design Museum last night as we staged our first ever Tweetup. On arrival, everyone received a CR Moleskine notebook like this:

After a free drink (thanks to the support of istockphoto) we soon set guests to work at the ‘activity table’ on the ground floor where they were asked to respond to a frequently updated brief on an ‘endless’ roll of paper.

We asked everyone coming to bring a piece of work which would then be taped up to make and impromptu exhibition upstairs. Here’s some of the work going up

Here’s our designer Tom Gaffan with a friend.

In the exhibition space we also had screens streaming the latest Tweets about the event – thanks very much to Nice for the app. Here it is next to Neil Ayres, our Twittermeister-in-chief

While we were busy getting the work up, our guests were invited to get their creativity going in the John Pawson exhibition. Each one was given a bag of LEGO® (thanks Andrew and Camilla) and asked to build a house.

Pretty soon, the room was full of CR readers deep in concentration as they applied themselves to this challenging task

Whoever did the LEGO® CR shown top, please let us know in the comments.

Afterwards there was a prize draw for an array of fantastic LEGO® sets including this monster, a metre long model of Tower Bridge worth £200 (as modelled by CR’s Sarah Davies) which isn’t even in the shops yet.

Thanks to the Design Museum, LEGO®, Nice, istockphoto, Moleskine and everyone who came along last night. It was great fun and definitely something we want to do again – we’re already talking about doing it again, maybe taking it out of London, possibly Manchester?
