After a bit of a manic week it was SO nice to sit down and get creative last night at a modern calligraphy class. Team gpstudio graphics (Jo, Nat and myself) have been wanting to learn calligraphy for ages! I signed up to a newsletter letting me know when classes were happening and when Quill London and Lamplighter London posted about an evening class we bought tickets straight away! Hosted in the lovely West Elm Tottenham Court branch (the...

To most Friday 28th was Black Friday, but for Font Fanatics it meant a Typography edition of the Friday Lates at the V&A: What the Font!? After I had booked the day off and braved starting my Christmas shopping (without realising it was Black Friday – stupid move) Jack & I headed to the V&A for some culture… After the day I’d had, I thought the Stressed/Desserts installation by Netta Peltola was quite fitting! There...

After falling in love with a vintage circus style N in Selfridges in December 2013, God’s Own Junkyard has had a place in my heart. I’ve been back to the Selfridges pop up shop and to Scream Gallery to see more of his work, but after seeing Nikki’s post about the warehouse in Walthamstow I decided I just HAD to go. So last weekend I googled the location and set off to find it with...

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 just read back through my last post and realised…. I haven’t really explained the artistic direction of my Zine. (Before you start reading… I’m in a chatty mood so this is going to be a lot of writing! So get a coffee & get comfy!) From my drawings you can get that I am going with what I like to call ‘Type-llustration’ – typographical illustration. It’s completely not me – I’m not an amazing...

O.k. boys and girls, today’s lesson is Type Anatomy… Ligature, Loop & Stem, alternatively known as Scott Boms and Luke Dorny (along with some help from Grant Hutchinson) are the creators of a set of truly beautiful typography posters… Only 100 prints of The Typographic Anatomy Lesson make it annoyingly exclusive (as well as more beautiful and desired!) … Each individually signed and sealed… ah it’s the small details which always make me happy. Also their...

I always start these J’adore posts in the same way ‘I came across this work when…’ but I promise, that is actually how it happens! I just stumble across these great artists and then I get hooked looking for hours on end hah Craig ward is no exception, although I have had this planned as a draft for nearly 2 weeks now – I need to get back into blogging at least a couple of...
