At the end of last week I was lucky enough to pop into the Print Club London opening night at Somerset House. Kindly Soofiya had invited me to accompany her to see this years Summer Screen Prints in conjunction with Film4 – thanks Soof! The drinks were flowing (Whiskey and ginger ale) and the rooms were buzzing with people looking and talking about the prints. With work from Kate Moross, Hattie Stewart and Holly Wales to...

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...

So this is the 4th and final post in the ‘168 Hours in London’ series. It seems like we got here really quickly – where has the time gone? It’s my last week as an intern at gp studio living in London, so what have I been upto? Well at the weekend I travelled West to Chelsea for posh charity shops and rainbow coloured houses – read the post here: Living for the weekend like...

After writing those heavy words the other night I’m feeling much better – it’s like a weight has been lifted! I have had some amazing supportive comments and advice which have made me smile, thank you! Now I’ve got a clear head and I’m ready to tackle my creative block – It’s creative rehab time! I was on the hunt for new blogs for inspiration when I stumbled across a couple of posts by Veronica...

4 hours after getting in from the gig and I was up and ready for day 3 of my London adventures – there’s no sleeping in the city! As I’m not (yet) a Londoner, I haven’t committed to an Oyster card and so I bought a travel card each morning. This morning on my way to the ticket machine, a lady came up to me and gave me her travel card because she didn’t need...

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...

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...

Tuesday morning I got the D&AD Pentagram brief. Fast forward 24 hours and I’m in London. It was a bit of a spontaneous trip, but a sensible decision. Amber, Emma, Lucy & I went to the big smoke on Wednesday to visit book shops and find inspiration. With both current projects being editorial and typography based, we decided it was a good idea to go and see what’s ‘out there’. Sometimes you just need to...
