…-trick. hat-trick‘s Jim Sutherland visited Lincoln as part of the Chitter-Chatter talks series. I remember going to his talk two years ago when I was a 1st year and being really inspired. Ever since then I’ve kept an eye on their work and was really excited to hear that Jim would be doing another talk. For the full low down, read what I wrote on the Show Thirteen blog. I briefly talked about their work...

Happy Triangle Friday – It’s been a long day! This week, I’ve got something really relevant to what I’ve been busy with recently. Since January I’ve been part of the Auction 13 team and it’s finally the week of the auction! We’ve got 25 brilliant postcards up for grabs here so go and bid on your favourite now – all of the money raised goes towards my degree show, Show Thirteen. We asked The Caseroom...

Since the last crit EVER on Friday afternoon I haven’t stopped! I edited Week #10 of the Show Thirteen videos Friday evening, shot more of my Metamorphosis time lapses on Saturday: We had a picnic… … a party complete with Limbo… … a pillow fight… … and made human pyramid! We know how to have fun in an empty room 🙂 Not wanting to waste the balloons, we had a Birthday BBQ on Sunday for...

Today Barrie kindly arranged for two designers to offer their help and advice with a portfolio surgery. I was lucky enough to see both Kath Tudball from Johnson Banks and Alan Herron from Alan Herron Stuff as another student had dropped out. Both were really chatty, friendly and helpful. It was great to talk through my portfolio and discuss it with experienced designers – it’s given me a bit more confidence about my ideas. I’ve...

It’s been such a busy week; meetings, auction 13 stuff, RGB stuff, blog stuff, press & comms stuff, photos and videos. It’s all very exciting, but all very tiring. We have received 26 postcards so far and began revealing some of the creatives behind them today. Keep up to date with all Auction news here and don’t forget that bidding opens Monday 6th May and ends from 6PM Sunday 12th May! RGB is back! In February...

I love the internet, social networking and email – it’s all so fast and easy. However, for me, there’s nothing quite like getting post. I love it! So  mix that feeling with the idea of receiving post from some of the best creatives in the world and you can just imagine; I’m like a kid at Christmas! Auction 13 is well underway and exciting envelopes stamped with our 13 have been  appearing. It’s a brilliant...

… this! You may remember a little while back (a month today actually!) I was doing some weird things with my room – emptying it, inviting people over, doing the conga etc. It was all good fun, but what was it actually for? As the penultimate brief of our degree ( cry), Philippa gave us an open brief with a starting point. Franz Kafka’s ‘Metamorphosis’, which is the story of a hard working travelling salesman...

WARNING: This post contains swearing! It seems like a long time ago now, but before Christmas I started working on the ISTD Sound Bites brief. After listening to several of the clips, I found swearing was a common theme and an interesting one at that. I’m not really much of a swearer, but I definitely learnt a few words during this project! I packaged my work up on Tuesday and this weekend it is auditioning at...

The University library started a system called ‘More books’ just after christmas where students can request new books that are needed for studying/dissertation. My dissertation looks at women in Graphic Design – the attitudes, successes and problems faced. As a female about to go into the industry, it’s something that is very relevant and I find it really interesting. I found that all of the books on women and design in our library were either...

Thursday evening I travelled to Manchester for the Roses Student Awards 2013. A while back I showed some behind the scenes photos of what Emma & I got up to whilst working on the Pen Pals brief to persuade people to get back into writing and make friends with the world! Dave kindly offered us a place to crash and so the 3 of us set off to Islington Mill to represent Lincoln. As we...

Only the other day I was thinking about how I’ve been really good with blogging this year – 77 posts this academic year already! However now it comes to the busy part of the year and unfortunately the blog posts will probably be few and far apart. I’ve got a to-do list longer than my arm – Dissertation, ISTD, Barrie’s new project, Auction 13, Show Thirteen (check out a new designer of the day, everyday!) and...

When I was at college, my tutor received a poster from one of his ex-students, Toby Burkill. It was an awesome poster; it was an St Brides Design Auction poster! Screen printed in a rainbow of colours, it inspired me when I finally got the opportunity to try my hand at screen printing a year later (which I can’t believe I just linked because that photo of me is horrendous but nevermind)! I hadn’t decided where I...

After the success of the first Chitter-Chatter talk from YCN, another has been announced! Mancunian design studio, RAW, are booked in for Wednesday 20th March at 2PM. Boasting work for Nandos, the BBC, The FA and Liverpool FC to name a few, the RAW talk is one not to be missed! Tickets are only £3 for an insight into what it’s like to work at RAW. I admit, I have admired RAW’s beautiful studio space for...
