Umbro Industries Round 2!

Just a gentle reminder that all creative folk in Manchester have just less than a month to get your ideas up on www.umbroindustries.com to be considered for the 2nd round of bursaries.

Theres some great ideas up there already, and its hard to choose but we’d like to show our support for the Ideas Factory, a really worthwhile project much needed in Manchester…

Plans are underway for our limited edition series of 10″s so keep checking mindonfire.co.uk for updates.
