I took part in a sketchbook project a few months ago which is getting passed onto another graphic designer every 4 days. The project is to create a spread to answer “What would you do with red?”. I don’t know if it’s a slight insight into my mentality at the time or in general, but I enjoyed drawing my little angry mob.

Over the last couple of weekends I’ve been working on some front end web development for my two lovely friends who are both freelance graphic designers and I’m glad to say that both of their online portfolios are now live. Check them out!

I was doing a backup of all the photographs on my phone today and found some pictures I took at the V&A Ballgowns exhibition that was on last summer. Well, the free pre-exhibition outside the actual exhibition to be exact.
I really enjoy looking at garments throughout history. The detailing on some of them is beautiful. Just the general form of a lot of things is just really interesting. I have no knowledge of fashion/tailoring etc in the slightest, but things like the corset (at the end) are lovely. Sometimes I think it’s a shame that unless you’re on a red carpet or at your wedding, it’s not the norm to wear something so extravagant!

I’ve recently discovered a character design studio based in London called Yum Yum. I watched their Happy Food animation and thought it was pretty sweet so checked them out further and some of the characters I came across are basically RAD. I have a particular soft spot for Boris the hamster…

This stop motion video by Shugo Tokumaru titled ‘Katachi’ (meaning shape) is pretty amazing. From the description – “The video is made with approx. 2000 silhouettes extracted from PVC plates using computer-controlled cutter.”

Seasons Greetings from FutureBrand London!
This is a something little I worked on to celebrate that festive season. You know, the one we aren’t allowed to say…hence the seasons greetings. Would people really get offended if you said Merry Christmas?
Anyway, we had the pleasure of moving offices this year, so to inform those that didn’t know, we thought it would be nice to incorporate it into our greeting. Besides the new building does actually look quite
Christmassy Seasons Greetingsy on the outside.

This is a wallpaper I designed over a year ago for the Just Us Collective that I forgot to post about. It seemed a shame for it to get left in the dark depths of my hard drive so as it’s the countdown to Christmas, here it is.

This week I was pretty excited to attend the book launch of Feasting With Bompas & Parr (courtesy of Will Ricketts!) which is the brand new cookbook from duo Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, aka The Jellymongers.
The party was hosted in the Jungle Conservatory at the Barbican and was filled with all sorts of curious oddities.
Like a huge platter of donuts perched on top of a pyramid tower.
Some hot Guinness Punch (which tasted interesting to say the least) and what I guessed from closer inspection, gold totems with real pig heads!
Tropical Khat Cocktails in tiny bottles and a bonus picture of Will wearing his ‘Hair Wreath of the Ziggurat’.
THE SHINIEST BERRIES IN THE WORLD, or Pollia Condensata Berries.
And to end it all, a mega dish with a gigantic jelly in, which I have to admit to not eating due to my aversion to the stuff. I also ate some pretty tasty brownies but missed out on trying Szechuan buttons, which I overheard were almost like eating a small electric shock…
