You wouldn’t expect to find a staircase in a shipping container, but in East London anything can happen. When Print Club London invited me to a preview of the Blisters 2017 prints I knew it was going to be good, but stepping down into this amazing warehouse style room (yes it was underground) I was in awe – of both the room AND the prints, of course. If you’re not familiar with Blisters then listen...

When you sit at a computer all day every day, doing something a little bit messy is a welcome opportunity. Luckily for me, the guys from Print Club London asked if I’d like to join in one of their workshops and I jumped at the chance of course! It had been a while since I’d been in the print room printing something that I’d designed myself. Recently it’s become quite trendy to have screen printing...

Any regular readers will know about my love for print – there’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly squeegee-ed ink on paper. Nowadays I spend most of my time sat at a white desk with a white keyboard staring at a computer screen – sometimes I might go crazy with a highlighter, but in general I live a very digital life as a Graphic Designer. Last month you might remember that I shared my printing...

Last year I posted about Print Club London’s Summer Screen Prints 2014 exhibition at Somerset House, and one year on I was looking forward to being back for 2015’s poster collection! Accompanied to the opening night by Lucy and Natalie (Team LuNa Creatives), I wasn’t surprised to find the exhibition space buzzing with admirers: From the psychedelic (An American Werewolf in London by Steve Wilson)… … to the typographic (Do The Right Thing by Rose...

Last night I popped into Costa Del Print Club London’s latest exhibition, Lost and Found. Blue skies, bunting, deck chairs and cocktails – it sounds like summer, right? (I even walked around without my coat and scarf… it MUST be summer soon!) I seem to be moaning about spending a lot of time sat at a desk at the moment, so any excuse to go to the print rooms & be around hand crafted work really...

Last night I was invited to the Print Club London studio for a spot of screen printing. PCL have collaborated with Farrow & Ball and 3 artists to produce some beautiful prints for the festive season. Prints by Lucille Clerc, Clare Halifax and Chris Andrews With the artists and Print Club London guys on hand we were able to get our hands messy and print. I think the last time I screen printed was with Anthony Burrill (la...

A little while ago I was invited to BLISTERS 2014 but I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to make it (thanks to my op) – I’m really glad I was able to go though! I didn’t realise that being invited meant I was VIP (I guess I thought that everyone who signed up to Print Club London’s newsletter got an email) so it was amazing to be on the Press list!...

At the end of last week I was lucky enough to pop into the Print Club London opening night at Somerset House. Kindly Soofiya had invited me to accompany her to see this years Summer Screen Prints in conjunction with Film4 – thanks Soof! The drinks were flowing (Whiskey and ginger ale) and the rooms were buzzing with people looking and talking about the prints. With work from Kate Moross, Hattie Stewart and Holly Wales to...
