Nigel from Mayamada meets The Jolly Rogers

This week our crew of Jolly Roger were visited by Nigel, one of the creators behind Mayamada, a Japanese inspired character brand set in a television network universe. Before hearing about the world of manga and anime, our crew gave Nigel a tour of our Ship and explained what The Hackney Pirates is all about.


Nigel shared the story of how the Mayamada brand has been refined, talking to the group about some of the failures and successes of the creative process. He then asked the group to think about what 'creativity' means to them.
