If you follow me on twitter you might have noticed that I’ve become a total hipster and jumped on the instagram bandwagon. I’ve joined the 21st century and have ‘swapped’ my blackberry for an apple (hence the post title).                I’ve had my iphone for about 3 weeks now and I love it. It’s been a busy few weeks  – I’ve been exploring Lincoln, Sheffield, Manchester and London and instagramming anything...

For the past 6 weeks I have engrossed myself in re-branding Avon, a company selling cosmetics and beauty products to women since 1886. From research, I established that bad connotations were associated with Avon. ‘Out of date’, ‘cheap’, ‘for old ladies’ and ‘naff christmas presents’ were all popular responses I received when asking for opinions. After analysing the brand as a whole I felt that the main problems with Avon were: I felt that the...

Last night I was tagged in something on Facebook by Jake which is pretty cool: 3rd row down on the right is my name, handwritten by none ofther than Seb Lester! Jealous much? My name has never looked so beautiful 🙂 Thanks Seb! To be in with a chance of having your name drawn by Seb you need to Like his Facebook page  and cross your fingers 🙂 Good luck!

It’s been exactly 3 weeks today that I gave the blog a new lick of paint… From this… …to this! I thought that after nearly 2 years with the same look, it was time to do something a bit different and more personal. So out with the old and in with the new – I adapted the style of my PDP Log of Reflection from University and voila! I’m calling it my ice cream/mint choc/sweet...

I can’t believe it’s the end of my first year at University already! Thank god for being a design student – NO EXAMS! Eeek 🙂 I have had such an amazing year, I don’t know how I can top it… oh wait, yeah I do – Year two! 😉 I had my feedback review yesterday with T-Fab and Glen. I was a nervous wreck! Trust me to have my review on Friday the 13th! Without...

Printing my zines wasn’t as smooth as I hoped it would be… You remember that lovely paper I told you about in my last post? Well I couldn’t use it because it wasn’t actually A4 – It’s a weird size; A4 length but not width! So I was pretty angry about that!! And I nearly printed my whole batch of zines with one of the wrong pages in place…. … it was a close call!...

After talking to Tim last week, I decided that I wanted to reshoot my images. I wanted something that I could find a lot of, could shoot in the same style and that was different to what everyone else was doing. I came up with 2 ideas: Road surface text and Yellow signs. I decided to take Aled out on our weekly Cafe Nero sketching trip Tuesday and go with both ideas, which I could...

Basically neat vs messy, smooth vs messy and easy to read vs hard to read sometimes. I don’t think I will ever learn about using pencil and then having to present/photograph work! Nevermind! In class I got some feedback from Sinclair and have decided which unconventional typeface to pursue with… The final task was to put all my work together. I tried to do a few extra bits to help it flow more as a...
