As a country girl, one of the things I enjoy about being in London is the food. With such a wide range of cultures there is always something different to try from Mexican to Japanese. I’m quite poor at the moment (and generally careful with my money anyway) so you won’t find me eating out for lunch/dinner every week but everyone deserves a little treat now and again, and I like to eat. And of course as...

… many things: Jupiter, Jelly and Jack Russells. But the 2 Js that I’m talking about in particular are Job and Junior Graphic Designer! I’m trying to not look too smiley here as I took a cheeky photobooth snap at my desk on my lunch to celebrate! I don’t think anyone noticed but I’m not sure…ha I’ve been an intern at gp studio for the past 4 weeks (#1, #2, #3, #4) but today I...

What do Graphic Designers, Fashion Designers and Advertisers all have in common? (This isn’t the start of a bad joke, I promise!) Well, obviously they are all creatives. But as industries which work for and with people, they all have to think about branding. Branding is important to clients. From cat food businesses to museums, all have a target customer to appeal to using a set of morals and an image. Branding isn’t just about...

It might seem like I’m spending a lot of time in London, but it just happened to be a busy/lucky week! After visiting Lucy at the weekend I went back to visit fellow Lincoln GD grad Ben Willers – more about that in my next post! Ben has just moved to London after randomly viewing a flat… and moving in the next week! He’d never been to the Design Museum and I knew the ‘Hello...

Day two in the big smoke and I forgot my umbrella so obviously it rained all day – typical! The rain kinda dampened my plans, so I spent most of my time on Oxford Street shopping/ looking at retail design and branding. This is probably just a touristy thing but I love that some of the tube stations have different wall mural designs – it’s like they each have a personality. Most stations are vanilla...

It was great to finally meet everyone at the Frequency team meeting last week. They’re really enthusiastic and passionate about Frequency and I think it’s pretty much impossible to avoid that from rubbing off – definitely a good thing. We looked at the previous branding, and with so many ideas bouncing around, a lot of notes were taken! Yesterday was the first day of my internship! The guys at Blueprint welcomed Lisa & I (the...

A long time ago (back in November would you believe!) I posted about my business cards, but with the degree show in mind they’ve had a bit of an update: With my panel focused on my dictionary of swearing and insults, ‘Mind your language’, I decided to use my typographic explorations to match. I thought it was a good idea to get my work ‘out there’ and end up in random places. Even though creatives...

Happy Triangle Friday! The other evening advertising student, Adam Holcroft, tweeted me saying ‘saw this and thought of you’ with a link. I didn’t really know what to expect, but felt like living life on the edge opened it to find this: Krystall is a branding and packaging project about a triangular chocolate bar by Riccardo Carlet. Triangles and chocolate? Possibly the best combination ever! Obviously there is already everyone’s favourite triangular bar, Toblerone, but...

Happy Tri Fri! I’m trying my best to give you a bit of triangular variation every week., so this week I give you: The branding for new fashion brand Moxham was created by Leeds studio, The Consult. The logo is built from triangles, but I can make out an M and an X hidden in there? The font is simple and bold, with all the letters being symmetrical like the logo. Moxham describes themselves as...

A is for Autumn. A is also for Accessorize. The other day I nipped into Accessorize and picked up their latest ‘lookbook/catalogue’ for Autumn/Winter 2011. I think the reason for me picking it up was a mixture of: being a girl and liking Accessorize products, being a temp sales assistant over the summer I feel a bit of loyalty to the brand now? haha and also because I’m a graphic designer and I just like...

The bad news is that now I’m a student my shopping trolley doesn’t contain a lot of beautiful packaging examples, in fact probably none at all! The good news is that I can get my beautiful packaging fix thanks to Laura Berglund 🙂 I think her packaging for Reve is B-E-A-utiful and it has an unusual story behind it too… The Reve brand is in fact not about food, but a Hot Air Balloon company....

Today the final badge was born(made). One of the technicians at TPH (Thomas Parker House) kindly made my design into an actual badge! If you remember, all of my designs were in pencil so I digitalised and printed them off on my shiny new printer (had to get a new one because although my old printer had a CD for installation with Mac, it wasn’t compatible!): As you can see… the badge cutter was actually...

You know those nightmares you get when you have to stand up in front of class, talk and everything goes really wrong? You forget your name? You forget how to speak English? You sweat bucket amounts? You start getting a nervous twitch? You forget your work/An Albatross flies in through an open window and swoops down, pooing on you and stealing your work at the same time? Your clothes disappear and suddenly you are naked?...

In true Cilla Black (Blind Date) style: What’s your name and where do you come from? First impressions are really important… no matter what people say, they deffinitely judge you the first time they meet you. It’s unavoidable, so the best thing to do is make a good first impression. In terms of an interview, this means wear smart clothes, be polite and enthusiastic. In terms of the first project at University it means knock...
