Traumfrau

My friends, Roni and Giorgia, and me are setting up a new club night in Brighton and I have the great job of designing the flyers and posters.  I hope people will be intrigued and go along, it really looks like it’ll be a fun night with i AM AMiTY, photo booths and all sorts…

I’d rather watch this film

The new Robert Pattinson film is being advertised all over the Tube at the moment. Every time I walk past one of the posters, this is what pops into my head and makes me smile.

I’m Comic Sans, Asshole!

Sheer brilliance: designer Joe Hollier has animated an edited version of Mike Lacher’s McSweeney’s article.  I love it, I love it all. via Swiss-Miss and DesignTAXI

Over-Identify (With Me)

Spotify is amazing, isn’t it? And undoubtedly the best part is being able to share tracks with your friends (or enemies? After all, I don’t know who’s on your Facebook friends list). The lack of a ‘sent’ folder is a well-vocalised gripe amongst users and I’m sure Spotify will rectify this soon enough, but I…

Tardiness is Not a Virtue

It has come to my attention that I have not posted for several months and, in fact, that my average post-rate is somewhere in the central region of “embarrassingly low”. The reasons for this are many and varied but of these, old-fashioned tardiness ranks highly. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve written…

Remind me how this works again..

It’s been so long since I’ve written anything more than 140 characters that I’m still dusting off the cobwebs from my keyboard, but while I do this (and yes, I know I’m almost a month behind on this particular campaign) I need to share this with you. The new Cadbury flake advert – which everyone know has…

Why My Friends Are Awesome pt. 29

Today I discovered that OMD performed Enola Gay with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. I’ve already been painfully Last Month this week, so I have no doubt that most of you probably already knew this – especially given that the performance was back in June. In case you hadn’t, here’s the only clip YouTube has to…

Best Music Video Ever?

Like most girls my age (sweeping generalisation, I know), I loved Jem. She was pretty awesome, after all. I was even lucky enough to have a Jem doll, complete with flashing earrings. A little bit of internet investigation has also revealed that my Jem doll – the 1986 Flash n’ Sizzle Jem – is one…

Drawing Conclusions

I’ve been banging on long enough about my experiences with drawing, but due to a technical error (also known as ‘carelessly formatting memory card’) I lost the pictures I wanted to include and, as such, delayed putting fingers to keyboard to write the post to go with them. I should also admit that I haven’t minded the procrastination:…

Typography Geek ♥

It’s been a really long time since I wrote anything worth reading here, but a combination and work and general malaise have prevented me managing to post anything, but I’m working on rectifying that and will hopefully – finally – put the Borough Market drawing debacle up this afternoon in all its glory. Until then,…

Enjoy

After two days in Swindon, I really need something to perk me up. I’ve chosen 1988.

Just 17 Rocked*

When I was 13, Just Seventeen was my aspirational Bible. Following on from the recent assignments, I thought these deserved a mention all of their own. There are hundreds of Just Seventeen covers available online, but here’s a couple I especially like.
