Last night I headed to the Apple store in Covent Garden to see Anthony Burrill talk analogue and digital. I guess I’m at risk of sounding like a stalker, but I have seen Anthony talk quite a few times – Something to Say at St Brides, Leeds Print Festival and I’ve screen printed with him too at KK Outlet. Why do I like Anthony Burrill so much? Well, I think the work speaks for itself –...

At the beginning of April I was invited to the screening of Made You Look, a film about creativity in the digital age. You’re probably thinking ‘A creative film? This sounds like a couple of interviews just sewn together? I’ve seen it all before…’ I had a feeling that this was going to be different. With interviews from creatives such as Fred Deakin, Anthony Burrill, Kate Moross, Hattie Stewart and Jon Burgerman, I had high hopes for...

My Advertiser friend has just moved to London and to celebrate, Lucy and her flatmates were having a house warming party so I popped to the capital for the weekend. It just so happened that some great exhibitions had just opened, so pre-partying I met up with Soofiya to check them out. Soofiya is a fellow graduate of Graphic Design (from Ravensbourne) who I’ve been following on twitter since the beginning of 3rd year. I...

So carrying on from my last post, the first speaker after lunch was the ‘nicest man in Graphic Design’, Anthony Burrill. I’ve seen Anthony talk at Leeds Print Festival back in January, so knew he was a great speaker and he also gets Brownie points because he replied to my emails back when I did the D&AD brief! ha He talked about Adams, the print shop in his country retreat village, Rye, and used a great...

…A quote from Anthony Burrill, who I contacted with questions for my D&AD Typographic Circle supplement project. Any ideas what I asked him for that response? Comment! So, now that it is past the submission deadline I’m safe to share this because no one can steal it. I had a William Shakespeare moment about entering; to enter or not to enter, that is the question? But decided not to in the end because there was...

For Day 2, Jack and I were joined by two familiar faces; Helen and Danielle! We managed to get really good seats, but consequently was sat next to this guy who kept telling jokes and pulling funny faces! Oh Chris – we can’t take you anywhere! On our seats we found some goodies: The little pack includes a LPS 2012 poster style programme, a ticket, a lithograph letter from Generation Press (I got t for...

At the weekend, I ventured further up North to Leeds for a weekend of printing fun. Held in Leeds Gallery at Munro House, this was the first ever Leeds Print Festival and hopefully not the last! With a print exhibition running from Fri 27th to Tues 31st, a print fair on Saturday and a talks from Generation Press, Si Scott and Anthony Burrill on Sunday, there was a lot going on(so I’ve split the weekend...

I’ve been a bit quiet this month, I know, but I am back as loud as ever with something exciting! So it’s the last day of 2011 and I’m looking forward to 2012 more than ever now. No, not because of the 2012 Olympics haha But this: Yes, I’m excited for the Leeds Print Festival!  At Leeds Gallery from the 27th to 31st January 2012 and ‘celebrating traditional and contemporary print process through type and image’, the festival...
