This is only my fourth post this month, sorry! I keep planning to sit down and blog but at the moment there’s always something else to distract me! But anyway… Remember me saying that I was going to be on the design team of the University Student Magazine? Well the first issue is out! Sam, Bobbins, Dani, Lucy(hiding) and Helen checking out Issue #1 of Bullet ’11! Yesterday was the Freshers Fayre, so I picked...

… or there will be, come September for the Fresher’s issue! You are looking at a member of the new 2011/2012 Bullet Magazine design team. Along with some other creatives I know (Sam Dowse, Dave Morris, Jake Townsend and Claire Kearns), I will be helping to design the University of Lincoln’s student magazine 🙂 I’m looking forward to making reading look pretty 🙂

Warning: This is going to be a long post with a lot of amazing Graphic Design – get a coffee, sit comfortably and be inspired! Studio 8 came to visit us Lincoln Students on Wednesday! It was held in ‘our’ Faculty building(Art, Architecture & Design), but I think I’ve only been in there once on an open day so it was a new experience! What a maze! Anyway, back to the important part… Studio 8...

I think it’s easier to look at design when you can’t understand the content and this work by Patricio Murphy is the perfect example. I’m not distracted by the text; all I can see is the modern, dynamic layout and imagery. I don’t understand Argentinian, so luckily  it says a bit about the project on Patricio’s Behance – below is a programme for Glow festival… The layout has so many interesting components, with the tables...

After the disaster with the plotter printer, I finally managed to print my magazine spreads and mount them for submission. Thanks to Sunjay Morar, who took these lovely macro shots of my mounts! All images, plus more, can be found at my student flickr.

After talking to Tim last week, I decided that I wanted to reshoot my images. I wanted something that I could find a lot of, could shoot in the same style and that was different to what everyone else was doing. I came up with 2 ideas: Road surface text and Yellow signs. I decided to take Aled out on our weekly Cafe Nero sketching trip Tuesday and go with both ideas, which I could...

I mentioned a couple of posts ago that one of the next projects would involve city typology photography. I ventured out into Lincoln, photographing every piece of signage/typographic anything and everything. 100 odd photos later and I had a good mix of typographic examples – road signs, street names, bins, road markings, instructions, logos. I have uploaded most of them to my student flickr if you fancy a peek? So we had to choose our...

I just remembered, I haven’t blogged about my Magazine Design project…. at all! Oh dear! This project was handed in before half term (nearly 3 weeks ago) but I somehow managed to forget about it! Anyway, Magazine Design – harder than you think. We had to learn how to use InDesign – not too hard but just weird because its completely different to Illustrator and Photoshop! Magazine layouts actually have a lot more to them...
