I’ve been talking about setting up my etsy shop for ages – so long, that you’re all probably a bit fed up of reading about it!? Well, I finally set it up last year… and I’m still trying to figure out what I want to stock in it. One of the things holding me back has been my printing ability – I’d had my printer for 6 years now and with the ink being quite...

Tuesday evening I headed to the For The Love of Music Videos talk at Somerset house with Jo, Sophie, Ben and Kev. First we stopped off at the Secret 7 exhibition which via twitter Jo had persuaded Somerset House to keep open for a bit longer – power to the people! We didn’t have long though & whizzed around the 700 vinyl covers. And if you’re a creative and/or a music lover and you don’t...

It’s crazy to think that I am the same age as Photoshop – Happy 25th Birthday! I don’t think that I knew Photoshop existed was until I was probably 15, but I wouldn’t have actually used it properly until I was 18. Now I can’t imagine my life without it – primarily as a Graphic Designer but also as a blogger because it’s not just design folk that use Photoshop now. Anyone can thanks to google...

The other week I went to 2015’s first D&AD President Lecture by Yuya Furukawa on a whim and, as always, left feeling so inspired and motivated. After posting my thoughts about the talk I was really excited to be invited by D&AD to the next lecture: Ben Tricklebank. On Wednesday I headed to Shoreditch Town Hall after work – a beautiful building, it was jam packed with people eagerly waiting for Ben’s talk. Ben is a,...

Also at The Old Truman Brewery this weekend, an Art Fair for the future: Kinetica Art Fair. Again, I attended the PV on Thursday night and then popped back with Jack on Saturday to see more/take more photos. It looked interesting from outside and inside, it certainly was: There was a lot of weird and wonderful things to see using lights, mirrors, illusions, magnets, moving parts and motion sensors. I found ‘Espaces chromatiques Rectangles en...

After work last night I ventured to a talk from creative women, for creative women. She Says is a global network for creative ladies which holds talks, events and networking opportunities. I wrote my dissertation (almost a whole year ago now – eeek!) about Women in Graphic Design, looking at ‘successful’ female creatives as well as the overall gender balance in the industry. As a female starting in the industry myself, it’s something I relate to...

After posting about the Festival of Imagination window displays and discovering that there was also a shop full of weird and wonderful things, I was excited to have the opportunity to go back and visit the Imaginarium at Selfridges in London: I guess that the ‘Imagine Shop’ is kind of like a toy shop for big kids (adults with imaginations). After visiting a 3D printing exhibition at the Science Museum, I was so excited to see...

Last weekend Ben and I ventured to the Science Museum to explore the 3D: Printing the future exhibition: As a Graphic Designer I’m intrigued about what the future holds for printing and I think 3D printing is quite exciting. I’d seen a couple of examples during a visit to the Design Museum but this exhibition highlighted how 3D printing will be able to help us in the future, not just produce pretty things! Ben said he wasn’t sure about...

I recieved an ipod (nano?) for christmas from my boyfriend… but haven’t touched it since, until today that is. He has been moaning and asking why I haven’t used it yet; ‘don’t you like it?’ and ‘is it because it’s orange’? (No, I like the orange) I am being honest when I say, the reason I haven’t used it is because I was a bit scared of it. I know, I know… EVERYONE has an ipod these...
