As a Graphic Designer, one of the perks is that I get to geek out about weird things like Pantone chips, fonts and paper and kinda get away with it. I mean, a lot of people don’t really get it but in December I discovered a place where I can ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ without judgement. Paper geeks rejoice; GF Smith have opened a show space in London! (It’s just off Oxford Street btw.) Paper. It’s...

What do you get when you put paper, German sausages, tankards of free beer & designers in one room? A mess, usually… but when GF Smith launched their new Gmund Applied paper range last week it was perfekt, as the Germans might say. I’ve been to these kinds of launches before – there’s usually a design display, free booze and circles of designers talking typefaces (oh, how stereotypical I know!) which is cool because you...

I feel like I’ve had this in my calendar for ages, but last night it was finally the Private View opening of Fedrigoni’s latest exhibition; Made In Italy. Soofiya, Sara, Sherida (all of the S’s) and I headed to Studio 2 gallery in search of green, white and red: The exhibition is only open for a short time, so make some space in your calendar this weekend either today (Friday 12th June 10am-5pm) or tomorrow (Saturday 13th...

After receiving an invite in the post (of which I featured the stamp in week one of my #100daysoftriangles project) Jo & I headed to The Boiler Room at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane for the Arjowiggins Pop Up 2015 exhibition. I really like the branding for the event – simple, bold and well considered across a lot of different platforms from flags to badges and bags. The exhibition is touring the world, having...

At the beginning of the December our (the studio) Fedrigoni paper rep Jess sent me an invitation to their Winter Wonderland party at their London office. The rest of the gp graphics team (Jo & Natalie, who I realised I haven’t told you about yet) couldn’t make it so I went to represent… but mostly to be nosey! If you’re not familiar with Fedrigoni, you should check out their selection of fine Italian paper stock. The...

I ♥ Fred Aldous. No, he’s not some hot movie star. No, he’s not my boyfriend (you can stop panicking, Jack). Fred Aldous is an amazing shop in Manchester selling paper, notebooks, cards, craft things, books and all other designery things which creatives get really excited about. I’ve mentioned the shop before, but I had a weekend away in Manchester with Sophie (my sister – do you think we look a-like?) and rediscovered my love for...

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...

I first saw the picture below on behance – a site which artists/designers/photographers post their work to get opinions etc This is how I got the attention from Trendhunter magazine about the Glitch photoshoot stuff ! My behance is here. Her work is so beautifully crafted. I can only imagine how long it takes her to make a piece like the above. Every leaf/petal needs to be curled or scored just the right amount so that...
