Love travelling but hate being away from home? I’m sure you’ll have heard about airbnb, but have you stayed in one yet? This weekend (16th-19th June) airbnb are opening the door on one of the beautiful London apartments to showcase the airbnb experience. What’s it like being a guest in someone else’s home? Well, let’s find out: Firstly, what an amazing front door. I’ve walked past this house so many times before and never knew it...

So I’ll admit, I’ve been falling a bit behind on posts recently – I went to see Paper Cut: The Exhibition almost a month ago! Ooops! But anyway, I still wanted to share this with you and you’ll see why: So the first thing I see when I walk in the exhibition… …That’s right, it’s a giant pencil. I mean at 5ft3 I’m quite small, but it’s still a big pencil made from paper! And...

Happy Triangle Friday! From something a bit wacky last week (Noisy Jelly) to something delicately beautiful this week: Matthew Shlian‘s paper craft is just amazing. A lot of his work features triangles… I guess it’s just because it’s the best shape 😉 Watch him in action: Wow. I can’t believe how easily he folds it back together at 1.40 – skill! In a way, I kinda feel a cheated because initially I thought he had cut everything...

Tonight T-Bish, Dani and I attended the University of Lincoln School of Art & Design Postgraduate Private View Evening 😉 The exhibition is being held at the Greestone Building, which none of us had been to before but Glen was quick to point us in the direction of the Print rooms… … unfortunately locked now but I will be going to have a play about in there sometime soon! 🙂 The building has quite an...

I’m a bit obsessed with paper craft atm sorry but honestly, J’adore couldn’t be more appropriate for this post about French graphic designers Zim & Zou! Now prepare yourself for a colourful trip Back to Basics, 80’s style… in paper: The amount of detail on this camera is just AMAZING! I know I’m a loser but it makes me really excited! If I owned one of these I would look at it in awe everyday… Zim...

It was great to re-discover Francisca’s work last night. I often save things into my J’adore folder and then forget about them but after a quick skim I found these beauties: I wish I could do something like this! I think I need to maybe look into learning origami or something because I would love to incorporate it into my Uni work this year – maybe a plan? I love the way the paper’s been...

Container PLUS is a three woman collective (girl power!) of quirky art, graphic design, photography… basically multi talented & multidisciplinary. Today, one third of ContainerPLUS came to speak to us Lincoln Graphic Design students about their work and life in ‘The Industry’… (Really loved the Container PLUS inspired poster for this lecture –  nice work, Third year Talks team!) Nicola, Patricia and Luise (who gave our talk on her own today) create weird, wonderful and quirky...

Tom Davie’s Behance is choc-a-bloc with brilliant typographic posters This is similar to a project I have planned. I was lucky to acquire some old psychology text books (thanks to a tip off that the Psychology department at Uni were getting rid of a lot of old books) and hopefully now that the Christmas holiday is here I will be able to work on it! All will be revealed soon 🙂 Wow. I love paper...

Search ‘Zoe Bradley’ on google images and I challenge you to find work by her which is below amazing! Hah, what’s that, I win?! Yes… her work is actually amazing! If you like Yulia Broskaya’s paper magic then you will love Zoe Bradley’s installations, window displays and fashion pieces all crafted with paper. She has done work for Tiffany & Co., Selfridges, Luis Vutton, Vogue and even made Royal Mail look glamourous! I wonder how...
