Ok so my collection of books has been increasing lately. I acquired two lovely science books and an old gold foiled history book while visiting an old home one weekend with my parents and they had a great book sale as you can see, all 3 of them cost me £5 total! Amazing. Then I also recently got this amazing typography book which as well as having a cd of all the typefaces has a little image of where it came from and where it was used - I cant wait to use them!
Over the weekend myself, Toby, Bron and Pete assisted Matt Wingfiled in fitting his vinyl designs to Wagamamas around London. It was a lot of fun and great to work with Matt and my friends from uni again, fingers crossed I can help him out more soon!
Ok so I havn't blogged for ages but it is a beautiful sunny Saturday morning and I have found the time to finally update before I head down to Brighton for the weekend. I have been super busy since leaving university interning and Freelancing. I have recently been interning at Pentagram which is going well and have also been asked recently to work on some freelance projects which is great.
I have been asked to come up with some ideas and designs to brand a new design consultancy. I have also been asked to come up with ideas and designs for rebranding a band which have just been signed. Liberties of London have asked me to contribute to their underground paper the liberated press and Rebecka Behrman the creator and graphic designer at Liberties has also asked me if I want to collaborate with her on a screenprinting project! Lastly after buying my bike I have decided to do some research into its history and create something on it. So watch this space as fingers crossed some exciting things will be happening.
Lastly I just want to say a huge congratulations to Alice Pattullo who is getting some well deserved coverage as an illustrator check here out here and here. We have also both designed some Christmas cards for two friends of mine from Kingston who are setting up "a new platform for artists and designers to showcase their talents in a product based format, run by new designers for new designers and artists" under the name of TWELVE, so look out for them too!
Ok so it might seem a bit crazy but for a while I have been printing off photos, I find otherwise I end up with hundreds of folders on my harddrive and rarely look at them and to me there is nothing better then having physical photo albums to look through and enjoy. So I have finally finished chronologically organising my life into albums, there are 10 in total which makes 1632 photos from when I was a baby till now recording all the best bits from Minneapolis to New York to traveling, family and University.
