After a lovely Valentines weekend at home in the Fens, I headed back to London with a bunch of gorgeous roses and a smile: Just when I thought I had sussed most of the area around the studio out, I stumble across a secret garden in the middle of the city: I bet this is amazing in the summer, especially for a few cocktails after work! Southwark, the tube closest to the studio, gets brownie...

I first discovered Tiger before Christmas when I was shopping in Cambridge. The shop was small but jam packed with cool things from stationery to food and homeware to novelty items, all for really good prices. Whilst talking about my phone case with Keri the other day (which is from Tiger), she informed me that there was a Tiger on Tottenham Court Road – so I popped in at the weekend: I think I would...

I realise that it’s like 3 days to Christmas now so this is a bit of a rubbish/short notice wish list but I’m only just getting into the Christmas spirit really. In my family, we don’t put our Christmas decorations up until after my sister’s Birthday on the 15th so quite late (unfortunately with my Birthday being Boxing Day, I don’t get a choice on the decor)! But our tree is now up, my Christmas...

4 hours after getting in from the gig and I was up and ready for day 3 of my London adventures – there’s no sleeping in the city! As I’m not (yet) a Londoner, I haven’t committed to an Oyster card and so I bought a travel card each morning. This morning on my way to the ticket machine, a lady came up to me and gave me her travel card because she didn’t need...

It seems like a long time ago now, but back in June I entered ‘Confessions of a Blog-a-holic’ into the Information is Beautiful 2013 awards. I had been checking back a couple of times a month but not seen anything – I even began to wonder if I had imagined entering. However, on Wednesday the longlist was released which is just typical as I had been away from my mac for 3 days in London!...

I have to admit, I miss Triangle Friday – I’m having TriFri withdrawals! I considered starting it again but I’m too busy to keep it going at the moment and if I’m going to do it, I want to do it properly. But for all of you triangle fans out there, I just wanted to share these mosaics I came across last week: I was passing through the Old Market Square in Nottingham for a...

Happy Triangle Friday! Yes, it’s here – week 52! It’s been a glorious year of Triangles but sadly it has to come to an end 🙁 A few people made recommendations for this last post (the pyramids were a popular choice) but I thought there was only one way to end Tri Fri really, considering the name of my blog… Bonsoir! C’est le Louvre Pyramid! This beautiful glass and metal triangle was built in 1989 (the...

Happy Tri Fri everyone! As I mentioned the other day, I’m pretty pre-occupied with a deadline at the moment so it’s a bit quiet blogging-wise but of course I have a bit of time to appreciate triangles today! I found this set of posters by Derek Kim: If I’m honest, I don’t really know what they’re for as the writing is too small for me to read & I haven’t been able to find any...

Welcome to the weekend – happy Triangle Friday! I follow over 200 blogs (ridiculous, I know!) and one of my recent favourites  is Geometry Daily. It’s a tumblr blog on which Tilman, a Graphic Designer from Germany, creates and posts a new geometric minimal composition everyday. Triangles are classed under the geometric family, and so feature in a lot of Tilman’s creations which makes me happy! Feast your eyes on these: From simple outlines… .. to...

Happy Triangle Friday! It’s turned very autumny in the last couple of days; the nights are drawing in and there’s lots of lovely colourful leaves scattered on the pavements. The only downside is the cold – winter is definitely on it’s way! I’ve been quite (VERY) busy with Uni work this week (again) and I was just going to post a photo and an excuse/apology, but as I walked back from the studio I had...

Happy Triangle Friday! For me, today doesn’t feel like a Friday (what does a Friday ‘feel’ like anyway?), but looking at this cover for Novum magazine definitely got me in the Tri Fri mood: Novum is a German Graphic Design magazine which began as ‘Gebrauchsgrafik’ (German for advertising art) back in 1924. As far as I know, it’s not available to buy single issues in the UK (but you can subscribe) which is a shame....

Happy Triangle Friday! Sorry, I know it’s a bit late in the day – only 30mins left of Tri Fri infact, but the wait has been worth it, I promise. This week I’m sharing the work of a lady who could possibly love triangles more than I do! Studio Moross is triangle central, which makes studio director Kate Moross the triangle queen! Kate’s work is simple, bold and energetic. She uses shapes and colour to...

It’s Friday again, and you know what that means – Triangle Friday and a good dose of lovely triangle design! This week I am in love with the editorial work of Erin Jang. She’s a freelance designer & illustrator from New York and has worked with clients including GQ and Urban Outfitters. Erin produced some creative spreads as senior art director at Martha Stewart Living magazine but it’s her Esquire magazine contents pages which really caught my...

Happy Tri Fri! I’m trying my best to give you a bit of triangular variation every week., so this week I give you: The branding for new fashion brand Moxham was created by Leeds studio, The Consult. The logo is built from triangles, but I can make out an M and an X hidden in there? The font is simple and bold, with all the letters being symmetrical like the logo. Moxham describes themselves as...

I’m in London right now but I’ve not forgotten… it’s Triangle Friday! Still not sure what Tri Fri is all about? Find out more here. At the beginning of 2012, Channel 4 unveiled a new look for one of its channels, More4. Step up ManvsMachine, who won the pitch to rebrand More4 with their triangle based idea: Original identity by Spin (left) and new identity by ManvsMachine (right). I’ve read a few comments from back when the rebrand...
