Shall We Take A Trip #2 
Trip is a Manchester Arts conference which runs from 19-21 June 2008 at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Designer, John Rooney explains the background and influences: "We have created graphic work for this exhibition based on what remains following the demise of the Haçienda. The language is taken from situationist texts and the visuals represent the colorways of the bollards in the Haç, the shapes represent rain (a constant in this city). Both myself and my colleague Pam Shaw have a long history regarding the Haçienda. Pam worked closely with Factory Records for many years, and I am course leader in MA Typography at University of Salford so this project was extremely important to us."

Some of John's work is still visible in the window of the Green Room in Whitworth Street (and not the John Dalton Building at MMU as previously stated) for the next few days.
