Lucky Six

Since August I’ve been pretty lucky either winning or aquiring Graphic Design items (posters, books etc) through twitter and facebook.

I thought it was about time I shared them with you so I photographed them all before the snow came to visit Lincoln (we’ve got a couple of cms now)!

Back in August I won the first issue of Imagine That, a zine showing student work.

I even feature inside… well, one of my tweets:

Included was this cute screen print poster of a typewriter:

In November I won one of only 50 black & gold Kern prints from Pixel One:

At the end of January I retweeted ex-Lincoln Student Sophie Adams’ tweet competition to win one of her Ghosts books about the abandoned underground stations of London:

And it must have been my lucky week because the day after I was picked as the winner of a breakfast themed poster from Tom Davie of Studio twentysix-2. I did a J’adore post about Tom’s work a while back, so was really excited to be getting a print of his work! It came all the way from America:

Looks good enough to eat – yum!

At Leeds Print Festival I was kindly given 2 posters; a Leeds Print Festival 2012 lilac poster by Aaron Skipper (who was helping to organise it):

(The only photo taken today – Lincoln has snow now!)

and also a Lestaret lino print, which I did show already but I just wanted to show you it’s beauty again:

Amazing!

I’m not usually a lucky person so it just proves that it’s worth keeping an eye out for competitions on social networking because you really could win!

Thanks to Imagine That, Pixel One, Sophie Adams, Tom Davie, Aaron Skipper and Lestaret. I love all of my goodies and am quickly developing a design wall in my room!

The next thing I’m hoping to win is a yellow pencil or a framed YCN A (fingers crossed!) but I guess I could settle for a lovely print in the meantime 🙂
