At the beginning of April I was invited to the screening of Made You Look, a film about creativity in the digital age. You’re probably thinking ‘A creative film? This sounds like a couple of interviews just sewn together? I’ve seen it all before…’ I had a feeling that this was going to be different. With interviews from creatives such as Fred Deakin, Anthony Burrill, Kate Moross, Hattie Stewart and Jon Burgerman, I had high hopes for...

After attending in 2013 & 2014, 2015 was to be my third year at the graphic arts festival, Pick Me Up. In the past I’ve been at the weekend which means it’s massively busy but this year I booked a ticket for the opening day’s evening with Sophie, Kev and Paul (Sophie’s colleagues from Premm design). So, to get in the Pick Me Up spirit, I picked Sophie up… it just had to be done! Each year the...

Tuesday evening I headed to the For The Love of Music Videos talk at Somerset house with Jo, Sophie, Ben and Kev. First we stopped off at the Secret 7 exhibition which via twitter Jo had persuaded Somerset House to keep open for a bit longer – power to the people! We didn’t have long though & whizzed around the 700 vinyl covers. And if you’re a creative and/or a music lover and you don’t...

On Saturday  I headed to Somerset house with the girls to see the infamous Beard exhibition. After showing our appreciation for Photography & hot bearded guys I persuaded Lucy & Nadia to accompany me downstairs to the Invitation Strictly Personal exhibition. Notes, sketches and invites collected by Iain.R.Webb, this exhibition is an insight into fashion graphics history. From shiny foiling, personalised handkerchiefs and tran tickets… …. to fluorescent die cuts (for Kenzo) and rustic keys...

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...

It’s been a whirlwind of a week so I’ve only just got around to posting about this, but on Sunday I was back at Somerset House for Pick Me Up 2014. It’s becoming a bit of a tradition now that Jack & I meet Emma & Alex to explore the creative work of illustrators, graphic designers and artists. Wearing a cat print top, would Pick Me Up 2014 score a purrrfect 10 in my eyes?: Before...

Yesterday Jack & I travelled to London to visit Pick Me Up, the graphic arts festival at Somerset House. Last year Jack went with his sister Emma and her boyfriend Alex, and we met up with them to see what was on show this year. En route to catch the train I realised I hadn’t brought my camera with me – I was so annoyed with myself! Knight to the rescue – Jack let me borrow...
