Take the test here all you type geeks! Then don’t forget to tell me what type you are (comment)! I’m emotional, understated, traditional and disciplined and so OF COURSE Marina Script (Which I do actually quite like) and only 9,829 out of 200,002 (4.9%) are too.  The most ‘common’ type type is Dot Matrix with 25,976 people and the most ‘exclusive’ type type is Expanded Antique  with 3,204 – which is actually my fave out of the type type options...

I’ve been having a bit of a busy time recently; (I know I say this all the time, but I really have been very busy recently!)  really stressed and tired so it was nice to see that Tescos had started putting out the easter eggs so I could treat myself. Obviously I wasn’t going to buy a whole easter egg (although they work out a lot cheaper than a chocolate bar nowadays!) because that would...

I work at a chinese restaurant, and something has been bugging me for weeks. One of my jobs before we open is to clean the salt, pepper and toothpick trays. I do this every Tuesday, and for a while now I have been seeing a face in the arrangement! It was very co-incidental/odd/perfect when at the ucas fair last week, a student at Leeds College of Art and Design told me about a ‘creative faces’ competition that is...

This post is dedicated to my college tutor, Mr Skinner/Lestaret. At college they are quite big (obsessive, stupidly particular, unreasonably picky) on health and safety and since we use scalpals to cut mountboard, cardboard, paper, our fingers(joking) etc we need somewhere to dispose of our blunt blades because they’re metal and they could still be sharp/dangerous. Mr Skinner has created a device for this purpose: a jam jar with a slit in the lid. But when we visited...

I had given up hope of going to Reading Music Festival this year, but my friend Nadia hadn’t given up on me getting a ticket, and with good reason. I think I actually now believe in fate. The boyfriend had a spare ticket!! Did I mention he is amazing? 🙂 Anyway, as always I like to try and show you the fun I have had but also what REALLY happens at these festivals! Last year (2008)...

It has been a busy week; so busy that I haven’t had time to blog really 🙁 AND also because I couldn’t get on here – computer problems. But it’s fixed now, and I have been told that I don’t write enough about myself on here (even though it is basically for my work) so I’m gonna tell you a bit about the week I spent on a Cruise ship! I went away with my...

I just logged onto my old Photobucket account (online image storage website) and found some ‘buttons’ from when I used to run my own mini fansite (this is back in the days of the Busted and McFly phase, so we’re talking… 6 years ago maybe?) I think they are pretty good (all have transparent backgrounds 😛 ) and just thought I would share them on here… … impressed much? ‘Cos I am haha I can’t...

Have you ever heard of the saying ‘A girl can never have too many pairs of shoes’? My current total of shoes is at about… 30 – including boots ( I just counted and I am actually quite shocked now!!!!) So I prove my point that girls just love shoes. Well I love shoes (more than I thought) SO much that a couple of months ago I started cutting out pictures of shoes from magazines....

Due to the recent recession, my Dad has been out of work for a couple of months now, but has just started up his own gardening business. He has named his business (ignoring everyone in my family’s constant mickey taking) ‘Wizards of Wisbech’. Laugh NOW. I know. I know. I hope he gets people ring him up trying to book him for a child’s party (though, that is NOT an invitation for you to do...

So it was Easter Sunday yesterday, meaning easter egg time! 🙂 (I also discovered I can’t remember much of the Easter story… and I don’t know why we have easter eggs, other than for an excuse for card shops and supermarkets to make money!?) My mum says I’m too old for easter eggs now (although, she still bought me one hmn) but my Grandad has a different view thankfully 🙂 He is also known as...

After Hilary’s lesson today, it would seem everyone is even more desperate for a Distinction on the Improbable product Branding/packaging project! After lesson Kirsty, Danielle, Stacey, Kelly and I headed into town… for shopping and a bit of photo taking at first but it turned into packaging, posters and bags collection! I had wanted to take pictures of some of the products in Boots, but even with a letter from Hilary to verify that I...

I read The Times newspaper at work… and came across this front page of The Times2 (alternative pull out section of music, fashion and art etc). I really love the composition. The original front cover had a heading bit written on the catwalk but I used the trusty scalpal to cut it out and have glued a white background to it, making the catwalk stand out as brilliant white 🙂 I’m not sure what exactly...

RandomTake Out?

This doesn’t really have anything to do with my course, or Graphic Design really but I just needed to share it with the rest of the world really lol I will probably end up doing this kind of thing every now and then… Yesterday we went on a trip to Nottingham Trent Uni and after looking round etc we went into the city for shopping (Primark queen at work)… and then on the way back...

Barrack Obama is the 44th President of the United States of America… and to celebrate, there is a website allowing you to create your own Obama-like posters which are said to have won him the election, designed by a bloke(?) called Shepard Fairey. My tutor posted the website http://obamiconme.pastemagazine.com/ on his blog and asked us to make our own Obama style poster…. so I did: What do you think? The next President, maybe? haha (At...
