After receiving an invite in the post (of which I featured the stamp in week one of my #100daysoftriangles project) Jo & I headed to The Boiler Room at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane for the Arjowiggins Pop Up 2015 exhibition. I really like the branding for the event – simple, bold and well considered across a lot of different platforms from flags to badges and bags. The exhibition is touring the world, having...

Tuesday evening I headed to the For The Love of Music Videos talk at Somerset house with Jo, Sophie, Ben and Kev. First we stopped off at the Secret 7 exhibition which via twitter Jo had persuaded Somerset House to keep open for a bit longer – power to the people! We didn’t have long though & whizzed around the 700 vinyl covers. And if you’re a creative and/or a music lover and you don’t...

It’s crazy to think that I am the same age as Photoshop – Happy 25th Birthday! I don’t think that I knew Photoshop existed was until I was probably 15, but I wouldn’t have actually used it properly until I was 18. Now I can’t imagine my life without it – primarily as a Graphic Designer but also as a blogger because it’s not just design folk that use Photoshop now. Anyone can thanks to google...

I know what you’re thinking – MORE neon!? I’m like a magpie to anything neon, so any excuse to visit the Sprüth Magers gallery to support my housemate Lucy’s neon project. She’s on a mission to photograph every piece of neon in London, so feel free to help her out by sharing any neon that you’ve spotted with me in the comments or via twitter! I’d read about the Kosuth exhibition in Time Out and with...

Slightly behind schedule, but last week I was reading my fave free London magazine, Time Out, on the tube home when I came across this article: Friends with benefits. No, not that film with Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, but an article about the different yearly memberships you can buy for museums and galleries around London. This got me thinking – I should probably own one of these! Living and working in London is pretty...

Quotes. Phrases – words – letters. With social media at our fingertips, it’s never been easier to have a voice. So how have we become a generation focused on sharing the words of others instead of expressing our own? Always be yourself unless… by We are Yawn via Society 6. What is it about quotes that makes us love them so much? There’s a quote for everyone – funny, sarcastic, cute, happy, sad and everything in between....

On Friday evening I headed to the Royal Academy of Arts with Nadia, Lucy and Ellie for the Bloggers evening. The Allen Jones RA exhibition opened last week and after seeing the bronze Kate Moss image everywhere I was interested to see the rest of Jones’ work. After walking up the RA’s grand staircase, we were greeted by 6 legs. It’s bright, bold and a bit weird – all these things make it perfectly instagram-able so...

Be bold? I’d have to be pretty bold to enter and ask you to vote for me in the 2015 UK Blog Awards after winning in 2014, right? I love being bold…or italic, but never regular (beautiful letterpress print by Cabaret Typographie)… Yes, my Young Persons Blog Award is still pride of place in my room and I still can’t really believe that I won. As I mentioned in my ‘In it to win it’ post,...
