D&AD President’s Lectures – Yuya Furukawa

Last week I went to one of the D&AD President’s Lectures. My housemate Lucy had a spare pair of tickets so I was quick to snap them up for Sara & myself. The speaker for the evening was Yuya Furukawa, Chief Creative Officer at advertising agency Dentsu in Japan. I’m getting used to hanging around...
The 'cool' job: I'm a Graphic Designer

The ‘cool’ job: I’m a Graphic Designer

Yesterday Mitch Goldstein (who if you have twitter and don’t follow, you need to NOW) tweeted this video and I just wanted to share it with you because it made me smile: FYI, I’m a Graphic Designer. Apparently it’s a ‘cool’ job? We’re so creative and mysterious – who even knows what we do all...

I loved the simplicity of ‘Today We Are Going To Learn The Alphabet’ by...
Borough Market: V-Day

Borough Market: V-Day

The v word. A commercial ‘holiday’ created to fill the gap between Christmas and Easter or an excuse to eat your body weight in chocolate. Maybe you’re an anti-valentines single or loved up in a relationship. Personally I thought Valentines Day seemed kinda hard to escape this year – anyone else agree?

She Says: Embrace Failure

She Says: Embrace Failure

The other week (sorry I’m a little behind on posts) I went to a She Says talk hosted by advertising agency Wieden + Kennedy. Joined by familiar (Lucy, Natalie, Lily, Lucy, Casey, Charlotte, Mariana, Vanessa, Harriet, Zach and Jo) and also a new face (Sara), the room was buzzing and full to the brim – the...
