These are some snaps I took on my iphone at the Pick Me Up art fair a few weeks ago, plenty of slick stuff on show which makes me want to up my game and do some work I'm proud of. 
The Evening Tweed  room was a fave, got chatting to one of the crew, Owen, who's got a new website as it happens.

Commemorative Benches

My latest self-initiated project became a study of memorial benches dotted all over Kingston. I was intrigued by their charm and symbolism of the deceased as an interactive seat for the public. This led me to celebrating the past life of the bench itself as the tree it once was, so I put together three different plaques commemorating three particular types of trees, certain benches have been made from. I then proceeded to photograph them in idyllic locations, where they'd be encountered. I'm aware the plaques may be too subtle, perhaps blending in unnoticed, or is that the general message? I might come back to this project and make some alterations someday.

Typography Today

Our typography crit went down today, where we presented our two double page spreads for the proposed 'This is Tomorrow' publication the uni are splashing out on later this year. We had to give a futuristic representation of typography in the world of tomorrow and this was our entry. We aimed to demonstrate the renaissance of typography in the post digital and digital age, from the hand-rendered to the computer-generated. 

Our forecast was the impending arrival of a post-digital age in which human interaction would have to co-operate with technology in order to overcome dependancy on the digital. Effectively bringing about a fresh renaissance. The verification (captcha) codes became the tool we used to present how a familiar computerised device requires human interaction for it to function. Really, really pleased with all we got done for today but some alterations may be in order, so stay tuned.

Le Spectacle

came across this on booooooom.com this morning, by XAVIER BARRADE.
hanging installation made from 1000 price labels. I have to say I'm a real fan of this guy's work, he's done a lot of clean projects across all disciplines that are easy on the eye, including some sexy info-graphics which I'm always a sucker for.

Summer seems to have came out of nowhere, which is nice.

25 Mar 2011


Had the pleasure of spending a week across the Atlantic in New York. We went with the uni and stayed at the very pleasant 'Comfort Inn' located on 25th street/6th avenue, in Manhattan baby. Amongst various visits to studios and design agencies, we tasted the delights of American culture; the people, their fast food, shopping and sightseeing. The week was kind of a blur looking back on it now, I crammed in alot of stuff and still found time to get ill for a day. Despite that the experience spent in another continent altogether was fantastic for me and really eye-opening. Inspired and entertained we flew back with a whole collection of memories and photos. Here's a few.
