Working in a design studio, you see all kinds of things arrive; paper, wood flooring, metals, tiles and more. When a parcel from All Colour Envelopes arrived in the studio, I didn’t expect it to cause such a stir. I’m used to Graphic Designers geeking out about stationery, but everyone was so excited by the shiny, glittery and bright colours. This is one for all of you stationery nerds out there… Ahhh – how much do...

In July last year I posted about a #BloggersFilmSwap organised by fellow blogger Nora of Hello You. I was somehow partnered with my housemate Lucy, and so we began our double exposure experiment together. Despite my enthusiasm I found it really hard to use my film (the same ol’ fear of using analogue film) and so it turned out to be less of a Summer project but more of an ongoing project. With some help...

Happy Birthday Borough Market – you look pretty good considering you’re 1000 years old! As Jack & I work in the London Bridge/Borough area, we wanted to join in with the celebrations: Footsteps in time is an interactive experience that visitors to the market could take part in and create a living artwork in 9 hours of trading on Saturday 20th September 2014. Visitors could make their mark in history by walking through the eco-friendly...

Thursday evening I met fellow blogger Nikki after work and headed to an exhibition launch party that I’d seen advertised on instagram: After attending the Signpainting workshop at the Tate I have been enjoying a more colourful, tropical world thanks to Animaux Circus. It was definitely the weather for it anyway – London has been enjoying/enduring a bit of a tropical heatwave recently! Small but bursting with inspiration, we were pretty impressed with Lik +...

It’s been a whirlwind of a week so I’ve only just got around to posting about this, but on Sunday I was back at Somerset House for Pick Me Up 2014. It’s becoming a bit of a tradition now that Jack & I meet Emma & Alex to explore the creative work of illustrators, graphic designers and artists. Wearing a cat print top, would Pick Me Up 2014 score a purrrfect 10 in my eyes?: Before...

So you’re looking for inspiration but where do you start to look? Well, chances are that your 1st stop is probably google, but how many other people have googled the same thing as you? Plenty. Which makes it hard to find something a little bit special and ‘out there’ – you want to find something different and exciting, right? Also, as great as Google is, the success of your search depends on the wording you...

After a lovely Valentines weekend at home in the Fens, I headed back to London with a bunch of gorgeous roses and a smile: Just when I thought I had sussed most of the area around the studio out, I stumble across a secret garden in the middle of the city: I bet this is amazing in the summer, especially for a few cocktails after work! Southwark, the tube closest to the studio, gets brownie...
