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,...

Wednesday evening I was lucky enough to attend the Information Is Beautiful Awards 2013. You may remember I posted about making The Longlist? Well that’s as far as I got (I’m still honoured!) but fellow Lincoln grad, Ben Willers, made it to The Shortlist and asked me if I would like to go to the awards as his +1 – what a lovely guy, hey? This was the first design awards ceremony that I’ve attended...

It wasn’t until the end of the night that I saw someone had commented on my blog ‘Congrats on being FP’ which meant… …I made the front page of WordPress! Being Freshly pressed is quite an achievement – ‘The best of 398,382 bloggers,645,239 new posts, 1,253,744comments, & 143,986,810 words posted today on WordPress.com.’ – That’s a lot of competition! I’ve been FP before but this...

Anyone reading this will know that I love to blog. I’ve owned my blog for 1210 days  now and have racked up 311 posts – that is nearly equivalent to a post every 4 days! Some might say I’m obsessed or addicted but as a Graphic Design student I find it to be really beneficial and helpful in getting my work ‘out there’. It seems so long ago now (as I am behind) but back...
