Winter Wonderland @ Fedrigoni

Winter Wonderland @ Fedrigoni

At the beginning of the December our (the studio) Fedrigoni paper rep Jess sent me an invitation to their Winter Wonderland party at their London office. The rest of the gp graphics team (Jo & Natalie, who I realised I haven’t told you about yet) couldn’t make it so I went to represent… but mostly to...
Quill x Lamplighter London: Modern Calligraphy

Quill x Lamplighter London: Modern Calligraphy

After a bit of a manic week it was SO nice to sit down and get creative last night at a modern calligraphy class. Team gpstudio graphics (Jo, Nat and myself) have been wanting to learn calligraphy for ages! I signed up to a newsletter letting me know when classes were happening and when Quill London and...
Xmas Craft Challenge with Emmi

Xmas Craft Challenge with Emmi

So I braved Black Friday, bought the presents and wrapped them all in handmade paper… I think I’m doing pretty well considering it’s still only the first week of December! But still, operation get into the festive spirit continues and so when Emmi challenged me to be creative with some of their CAFFÈ LATTE cups I...
X marks the stamp: Festive gift wrapping

X marks the stamp: Festive gift wrapping

With Christmas drawing closer, the pressure of buying that ‘perfect’ gift is on. As I mentioned, I’m not really into Christmas (although I’ve been feeling a lot more festive compared to previous years) but as a Graphic Designer one thing I do like looking at and thinking about is the detailing. The wrapping paper, ribbons,...
Mashtags and Alphabetti

Mashtags and Alphabetti

So it’s getting to that time of year when people start to feel all nostalgic (well, recently it seems like it’s ANY excuse to be nostalgic about the 90s!?) and sentimental – yes, I’m going to say it. The C word. Christmas time. Well I’m not going to pretend that I love Christmas because I...
Friday Lates @ The V&A: What The Font?

Friday Lates @ The V&A: What The Font?

To most Friday 28th was Black Friday, but for Font Fanatics it meant a Typography edition of the Friday Lates at the V&A: What the Font!? After I had booked the day off and braved starting my Christmas shopping (without realising it was Black Friday – stupid move) Jack & I headed to the V&A...
Get Hyped for Type

Get Hyped for Type

In 2012 it topped Amazon’s design & typography sections at #1 for 5 weeks – any guesses at which book it could be? No? It was Hype for Type’s Little Black Book of Fonts V.1. If you don’t know about Hype for Type (where have you been?), it’s an online type library holding some of...

Allen Jones @ The RA

Allen Jones @ The RA

On Friday evening I headed to the Royal Academy of Arts with Nadia, Lucy and Ellie for the Bloggers evening. The Allen Jones RA exhibition opened last week and after seeing the bronze Kate Moss image everywhere I was interested to see the rest of Jones’ work. After walking up the RA’s grand staircase, we were...
Paint & Patterns

Paint & Patterns

I haven’t really had the opportunity to get my hands messy for a while so when the chance to get pattern-y with paints popped up I was pretty excited. Direct Blinds sent me a little creative kit to take part in #Makemeadesigner so I chose watercolour as my weapon of art – I just love...
Keep Kemistry Alive

Keep Kemistry Alive

Monday night I felt quite restless and couldn’t sleep. But at 11.29pm I felt much better – I became a backer of Kemistry Gallery’s ‘Keep Kemistry Alive’ kickstarter campaign. So what is Kemistry Gallery and what’s happening to it? Kemistry is a small independent gallery that has been exhibiting cutting edge talent and legendary graphic designers...

#BeBold – UK Blog Awards 2015

Be bold? I’d have to be pretty bold to enter and ask you to vote for me in the 2015 UK Blog Awards after winning in 2014, right? I love being bold…or italic, but never regular (beautiful letterpress print by Cabaret Typographie)… Yes, my Young Persons Blog Award is still pride of place in my room...
