Magic show, Pantomime or Freak show – one things for sure, we just love to be entertained. The newest exhibition at The British Library is a celebration of just that, showcasing amazing typographic posters and intriguing objects transporting you back in time. In the words of Robbie Williams; Let me entertain you! And this exhibition will via the stories of 5 entertainers; Evanion, Maskelyne, Lord George Sanger, Miss Annie De Montford and Dan Leno. I...

Last Friday I was invited to the bloggers and Instagrammers evening view of the Summer Exhibition 2015 at The Royal Academy. This is the first year that photographs are allowed to be taken within the exhibition – welcome to the 21st century people! I’m sure that the RA will discover the benefits of some free promo in the form of Instagram. As a creative and having attended a couple of events at the RA already...

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...

On Saturday  I headed to Somerset house with the girls to see the infamous Beard exhibition. After showing our appreciation for Photography & hot bearded guys I persuaded Lucy & Nadia to accompany me downstairs to the Invitation Strictly Personal exhibition. Notes, sketches and invites collected by Iain.R.Webb, this exhibition is an insight into fashion graphics history. From shiny foiling, personalised handkerchiefs and tran tickets… …. to fluorescent die cuts (for Kenzo) and rustic keys...

A bit later than planned, sorry! Last weekend I explored a new part of East London: Hackney Wick/Hollywood/Hackney Wick – spot the difference. The streets were buzzing because for 3 days artists and designers were opening their studios, exhibiting work and installations so Lucy, Gabby & I wandered. Hackney WickED is quite spread out and despite having a map (which was useless & so pixelated that we couldn’t read the road names) it was a bit of...

With a Tesco express popping up every 5 minutes, small independent cornershops are becoming a rarity (well, in London anyway). However, just off Columbia Road, Lucy Sparrow is rebelling with her project which Lucy, Nadia & I went to check out last weekend: Although it stocks everything from space raiders to fish fingers, The Cornershop isn’t what it first appears… look closer: Everything is made of felt! Hand crafted by Lucy Sparrow and exhibited in their...

Love. What is love? It’s that warm fuzzy feeling. It’s special, amazing, beautiful and magical. It’s one of those feelings that can only be experienced, and thanks to the Southbank Centre you can do just that at the Festival of Love. Lucy & I popped in last weekend after arriving too early at Trafalgar square for the Pride parade (which we didn’t get to see after all!) and ended up spending about 3 hours wandering...

At school, no matter how hard I tried (and I really did – afterschool chemistry lessons and everything!), Maths and Science were never really ‘my thing’ – algebra and covalent bonds, I just couldn’t get my head around them. Despite my struggles, I somehow have a lot of love for collecting, analysing (which is usually associated with Maths and Science? I make no sense) and using data to communicate. In my 2nd year of Uni,...

Last weekend Ben and I ventured to the Science Museum to explore the 3D: Printing the future exhibition: As a Graphic Designer I’m intrigued about what the future holds for printing and I think 3D printing is quite exciting. I’d seen a couple of examples during a visit to the Design Museum but this exhibition highlighted how 3D printing will be able to help us in the future, not just produce pretty things! Ben said he wasn’t sure 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...

I’ve been feeling a bit lost in life recently, so I decided it was time for a change of scenery for few days. Where did I go for my inspiration vacation? To London of course! I had a few places that I wanted to go but the general idea was to just go on an adventure and discover some cool things. At Kings Cross I bumped into a familiar face who was heading to the...

Thursday 17th June at 7.15pm the College of West Anglia 2010 Art & Design exhibition was declared open! This week has been so hectic. I’ve been painting the exhibition space… … I’ve been panicking about filling my exhibition boards…. …. and I’ve been happy to pose infront of the finished work at the exhibition night!  This week has been tiring and a lot of hard work, but has been rewarding, and not only because I got to see all...
