Last Wednesday I received an email from Byron – I signed up to their newsletter for updates about new burgers etc. But this wasn’t about the latest menu addition – it was an invite to eat for free at the opening weekend of the new Byron on the Strand! Free Byron burgers? I’m there! So I booked a table for the Saturday and 2 minutes later it was sold out! (Hoarding design by Charlie Smith) The...

Love. What is love? It’s that warm fuzzy feeling. It’s special, amazing, beautiful and magical. It’s one of those feelings that can only be experienced, and thanks to the Southbank Centre you can do just that at the Festival of Love. Lucy & I popped in last weekend after arriving too early at Trafalgar square for the Pride parade (which we didn’t get to see after all!) and ended up spending about 3 hours wandering...

So, here’s a bit of a break from Burgers(sorrynotsorry) – Poppies of Spitalfields is British personified: Fish and Chips. I had heard a couple of people mention Poppies and when Nadia and I found ourselves on the streets of Shoreditch and hungry (not homeless!) we decided to head to Poppies. ‘Best Fish ‘n’ Chips discovered in London town’ – a big claim to make, so would Poppies live up to it? Well, they have been named...

As a country girl, one of the things I enjoy about being in London is the food. With such a wide range of cultures there is always something different to try from Mexican to Japanese. I’m quite poor at the moment (and generally careful with my money anyway) so you won’t find me eating out for lunch/dinner every week but everyone deserves a little treat now and again, and I like to eat. And of course as...

LOL. An abbreviation commonly used by the youth of today for Laugh out loud (and by the older generation for lots of love – which just confuses everything!). But it can also stand for London’s obscure Language (which I do LOL about) when it comes to shop/restaurant/takeaway names. Since choosing to use the bus over the underground for my daily commute I have been surprised, confused and amused by the signs above some of the...

Most people switch off/change channel when it comes to TV adverts but actually I quite enjoy watching them. The Channel 4 3D idents have been running for 10 years now (starting in 2004) and I have always found them interesting. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, let me remind you: From fields to roller coasters, the possibilities are endless! But it’s not enough to see a still image so watch a couple for...

… many things: Jupiter, Jelly and Jack Russells. But the 2 Js that I’m talking about in particular are Job and Junior Graphic Designer! I’m trying to not look too smiley here as I took a cheeky photobooth snap at my desk on my lunch to celebrate! I don’t think anyone noticed but I’m not sure…ha I’ve been an intern at gp studio for the past 4 weeks (#1, #2, #3, #4) but today I...

So this post comes a bit later than I had originally planned, but if you have been wondering why I’ve been a bit quiet/ you follow me on instagram and wondered why I’m posting so many pictures of London… …I’m interning at gp studio in London! Yes, I have made the jump and said yes to a placement in London. After my ‘creative crisis’, I picked myself up and went to 2 interviews in London,...

What do Graphic Designers, Fashion Designers and Advertisers all have in common? (This isn’t the start of a bad joke, I promise!) Well, obviously they are all creatives. But as industries which work for and with people, they all have to think about branding. Branding is important to clients. From cat food businesses to museums, all have a target customer to appeal to using a set of morals and an image. Branding isn’t just about...

It might seem like I’m spending a lot of time in London, but it just happened to be a busy/lucky week! After visiting Lucy at the weekend I went back to visit fellow Lincoln GD grad Ben Willers – more about that in my next post! Ben has just moved to London after randomly viewing a flat… and moving in the next week! He’d never been to the Design Museum and I knew the ‘Hello...

Seeing the flyers popping up everywhere I went was weird but it meant the word was getting around about the festival. After a couple of months hearing about the plans and designing the bits and bobs, it was finally here – Frequency 2013. Also, there was a familiar face added to the Frequency team… …Emma was back doing what she does best – managing/ organising/ bossing people around as a Festival Assistant. And I did...

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...

Day two in the big smoke and I forgot my umbrella so obviously it rained all day – typical! The rain kinda dampened my plans, so I spent most of my time on Oxford Street shopping/ looking at retail design and branding. This is probably just a touristy thing but I love that some of the tube stations have different wall mural designs – it’s like they each have a personality. Most stations are vanilla...

(The title is a reference to the Sugababes song – remember that from many moons ago in 2002) What have I been up to since my last update a couple of weeks ago? Well… Comparing our boss Chris to Lisa’s Butter nut squash (which she later ate – cannibal!)… …taking advantage of the buffet at meetings… … a deep discussion about daschund doggies… My friend Glen snapchatted me a flyer which had made it’s way...

I’ve been working on Frequency Festival at Blueprint for nearly a month now and I haven’t really shared anything about my experience so I thought it was about time to dish the dirt! Working in the Blueprint studio is… … great, honestly. The studio is in a nice building, the guys are a laugh and I’m really enjoying myself. If I’m honest, I wasn’t sure how I was going to get on with a 9...
