..try typing “let it snow” in Google - Happy Christmas Everyone!


It’s Magic.. I was hunting for a mobile a few days ago and came across a newsagents/phone shop. It was fairly busy on the sweets counter, I asked a few things about the phones and the shop keepers knew nothing and strangely didn’t seem interested in showing/selling me anything..
There was no mobiles of interest but I noticed the shiny new apple mouse wasn’t price labeled (The owner wasn’t present, Winner).. I wanted a price and eventually after speaking in another language they came up with the price of ten pound! I didn’t show too keen and handed over the dosh!  Anyways I’ve decided too keep it for myself and it’s probably the nicest mouse i’ve used, highly recommend it for browsing and designing.. No cables No dongles.. just bluetooth hookup.

HTML IS A DISEASE..

I feel everything after the Carnival Brief has become unenjoyable and a chore at times. On reflection of my work and enjoyment.. The print room was a place I really was in my element. I really liked the idea of mixing print with digital elements on my last project and I’ll be doing more of what I enjoy from now on. I understand you have to do things you don’t like sometimes but…


PRINT ON DIFFERENT MATERIALS FOR THE GREATER GOOD

THIS IS GREAT IDEA

By Leo Barnett offices in Johannesburg - Salvation Army Winter Appeal were printed on real blankets and hung on walls around Johannesburg… with a message encouraging the homeless to use them if needed… more of this please

Pacman - Hilton Manchester
Great little idea, grabbed so much attention/smiles off passers by. I think it’s made of posty notes.. genius!

Forest Above! 

Forest Above! 


Superglued my fingers! 

Building the Forest above! I started by going too the Model Shop with the intention of getting everything plus more for a tenner.. I was wrong the model tree’s I needed where so fucking expensive.. I decided too make my own from some 4 quid “Clump Foliage” a few twigs and some strange bush in my garden! The bases required difficult thinking but in the end I have this moulding plastic which saved the day! I’ve more too add but it was a nice experimentation and I can now re-arrange various rooftop gardens!
