As a Londoner, Underground etiquette is a daily struggle. With over 4.8million passenger journeys on the Tube every day there’s bound to be a few disagreements because it’s not much fun being a sardine… and yet we still continue to do it! Although we’re usually very British about it all (passive aggressive and silent until pushed too far), there’s no denying that it’s quite stressful and unlikely to ever really change. But there’s no harm in...

So it’s onto the next project – ISTD with Barrie & Philippa. For our introductory lesson yesterday, we were asked to bring A2 layout pads, scalpels and glue – intruiging. It turned out that we were going to be making really quick, circus themed posters using letters of a variety of sizes. This isn’t random – one of the ISTD briefs is called Circus: Emma works on her zombie clowns poster… … whilst the rest...

Since August I’ve been pretty lucky either winning or aquiring Graphic Design items (posters, books etc) through twitter and facebook. I thought it was about time I shared them with you so I photographed them all before the snow came to visit Lincoln (we’ve got a couple of cms now)! Back in August I won the first issue of Imagine That, a zine showing student work. I even feature inside… well, one of my tweets:...

For Day 2, Jack and I were joined by two familiar faces; Helen and Danielle! We managed to get really good seats, but consequently was sat next to this guy who kept telling jokes and pulling funny faces! Oh Chris – we can’t take you anywhere! On our seats we found some goodies: The little pack includes a LPS 2012 poster style programme, a ticket, a lithograph letter from Generation Press (I got t for...

Screen printing, old school banner styles, politics & controversy? Sounds great, looks great! Nick Adam is a graffiti artist/photographer/printmaker/general creative talent from the USA! His work caught my eye whilst browsing through the PrinterVention gallery. I was originally drooling over this mobile silkscreen by Mike Slattery and then my attention was swayed… I love the base poster, but then I love the hand drawn graffiti writing over the top too… I wish my hand writing...

I was browsing FPO earlier and came across Tone Ink‘s posters for Grace Potter & The Nocturnals… I love the colour mix and overlay method of the leaf. The wood grain is a nice texture too… not too harsh but still nicely detailed. Also, I’m quite a fan of Futura recently since my book cover for Woman on the Edge of Time 🙂 The Tone Ink studio is based in Baltimore, Maryland who ‘strive to...

I found this video via Effektive – who I J’adore haha If you love printmaking, letterpress, typography, posters or just Graphic Design in general…. you MUST watch this! 8 minutes of your life, well spent/enjoyed. I love the opening quote: ‘Advertising without posters is like fishing without worms(have I got that right?)’ And I just love everything in this video – I wish I could go to Nashville to see it all happening/ get my own...
