Last night I popped into Costa Del Print Club London’s latest exhibition, Lost and Found. Blue skies, bunting, deck chairs and cocktails – it sounds like summer, right? (I even walked around without my coat and scarf… it MUST be summer soon!) I seem to be moaning about spending a lot of time sat at a desk at the moment, so any excuse to go to the print rooms & be around hand crafted work really...

As I mentioned Saturday, I’m a bit behind on the posts at the moment. Last week was action packed, but today is the first day of a self directed study week so I’m in the middle of making a to-do list – it’s pretty long! Last Tuesday Ben Willers, an ex-Lincoln student visited to talk data visualisation. I visited his MA show back in September so was familiar with his work but as always, it’s...

Raquel’s quirky origami business card caught my eye… Who doesn’t love dot-to-dots? I really like how the message isn’t revealed straight away and also how the words are connected even though they’re on different lines! Just think this is a really unique and memorable business card which I would be very happy to own one of! Cute, interactive and memorable!

This is because I have chosen to use a compass as the main image on the CD face and then match it up on the inlay tray. Hopefully the printer won’t affect the alignment, but I have a...

This is another project(like book design) which is coming to a close now, with only 2 weeks left until the deadline! With it being our first project when we got back into the 2nd year of our course we all have struggled with this project really, as its coming to the point now where we are running around like headless chickens – we will learn, sometime in the future! Basically, the brief is to design 3 whole...

It was only June when I had my first attempt at linocutting, a medium invented by the Die Brucke artists whom I studied for my final major project of year 1 of my BTEC course. I really struggled. I know practice makes perfect etc and I probably didn’t put in as much effort as I needed to BUT as I am preparing myself to go back to college in September (I am SO looking forward to it),...
