I’ve been visiting London Design Festival for a few years now and admiring all of the exhibitions, installations and events with a hint of jealousy; I wanted to be involved, but I didn’t know how. Little did I know it, but 2018 was going to be different from my usual LDF experience! When the team at homeware brand West Elm said that they liked my mural and asked if I’d like to be an artist in...

It’s never good to start with an apology, but as I’m polite: Sorry. My posting schedule has been a bit all over the place recently and I’m currently experiencing a bit of what we’ll call ‘bloggers block’ – it happens to the best of us! Send inspiration and positive thoughts my way 🙂 I’m just having such a busy time at the moment, but I’ll be back on track soon don’t worry! And anyway, there’s...

So this week Instagram made some changes to their layout – the new simplicity looks great, but they’ve removed the header meaning that I now have to make a weekly roundup montage rather than just screenshot the generated one – boo! In terms of #The100DayProject, Week 10 has been the best yet because something really amazing happened! So every Monday there is a #The100DayProject newsletter which features inspiration from #The100DayProject feed and top picks from some...

At the beginning of January I received an exciting email. Nuffnang is the world’s leading blog advertising community. They are dedicated to building strong relationships between the bloggers in their community and brands seeking relevant publishers with strong followings to engage with. What does Nuffnang mean? “Real cool” in Jaifakan (a mix of Jamaican and African). I first learnt about them in November 2014 when one of my Cosmo Awards Babes, Katie, mentioned she was going to a...

Hello there! It’s been a little while since I’ve done a post about what I’ve been up to, hasn’t it? You’ll be glad to know I’m still alive, loving the capital and I have some exciting news to share! But first, why have I been quiet? Well, I’ve been busy: So, what seems like aaaaaages ago now, I finally got around to going to Columbia Road Flower Market on a Sunday morning with Nadia and Lucy:...

I can’t believe it’s been just over 2 weeks since the UK Blog Awards – time has flown! Lovely snapchats from Alice  & Sam, Jess, Lydia and Yuliya! Thank you again to everyone for all the kind words and support – it really means a lot! I’ve received lovely comments, exciting emails and a round of applause at the studio on Monday morning when they found out – I blushed! And if I didn’t already...

Oh, what a night! It seems a long time since the announcement of the finalists in February for the 2014 UK Blog Awards, but on Friday night it was finally time to get glammed up and celebrate. After finishing work, I rushed to Nadia’s to make myself look half presentable and then we dashed to St Pauls in search of the venue – The Grange Hotel. Lost, we hailed a taxi and was then asked...

It seems like a long time ago now, but back in June I entered ‘Confessions of a Blog-a-holic’ into the Information is Beautiful 2013 awards. I had been checking back a couple of times a month but not seen anything – I even began to wonder if I had imagined entering. However, on Wednesday the longlist was released which is just typical as I had been away from my mac for 3 days in London!...

As I mentioned in my post about the MA exhibition preview, I picked up a copy of Issue 2 of the lsa&d magazine. The magazine showcases a flavour of the school of art & design as well as the achievements of different courses. Obviously I’ve just finished my degree, BA (Hons) in Graphic Design at the school so I was interested to see ‘our’ page: It made me smile when I saw that they had...

Now, before you say anything… please read the title to the tune of this. The sun is shining, The Beach Boys are playing (on youtube) and I have been featured on ImagineThat’s blog: Have a look here. ImagineThat feature creatives from a range of disciplines, so why not submit your work? 🙂 You guys might have guessed that I can talk/write for England, but I actually found it quite hard writing my bio – not sure...

I’ve just discovered an email in my junk mail: ‘Hello Natasha, We just wanted to notify you that one of your projects was just featured on the Behance Student Show Gallery. Our curation team features a small number of projects every day. With thousands of options, we only pick a few that promote new thinking. Congrats, and great to have you involved in the Student Show!

Whilst I was helping at the 3rd year’s show on Friday evening, my phone was buzzing like crazy. It wasn’t until the end of the night that I saw someone had commented on my blog ‘Congrats on being FP’ which meant… …I made the front page of WordPress! Being Freshly pressed is quite an achievement – ‘The best of 398,382 bloggers,645,239 new posts, 1,253,744comments, & 143,986,810 words posted today on WordPress.com.’ – That’s a lot of competition! I’ve been FP before but this...

Excitement running high and booze flowing – the private view of the 53 degrees north show was in full swing Friday evening! As mentioned before, I was going to help out/be nosy/network and I had a great time. The keen team: Tom, myself, Emma, Talveer, Harry, Dave, Sophie and Jack. It was a really exciting but scary just to think that in a year it will be my turn! Chris and Barrie gave emotional speeches and...

This is so exciting and crazy, I almost didn’t believe it at first! I am a now published designer! My work in featured in a BOOK! Yes, a real life, printed, published, dispersed around the world, book! Packaging Structures features my Kombucha health drink packaging from back when I was at college! It’s just madness! Back in July I uploaded the project to my Behance profile and within 2 hours I had received an email from...
