The Saatchi Masterclass

May 16, 2017

In early March I received an exciting email that I had been invited to a portfolio masterclass event at M&C Saatchi. I was one of 400 applicants and fortunate to have made the short-list of just 40 who would have the opportunity to present their work to leading creative directors. The event was created by The-Dots.com,…

The Luxury of Water

April 10, 2016

Here I am, submitting my dissertation! I thought I would mark this university milestone with a little write up about my dissertation experience! So grab a chair, grab a glass of tap water and enjoy responsibly! My dissertation focused on bottled water. It’s a look at how design can create a life style, an aspiration…

A little while back I entered and won a design competition for The Hold, a new heritage centre that is a shared venture by the Suffolk Record Office, UCS and Suffolk County Council.

Junk Mail. But not just any junk mail, luxurious junk mail! It’s not an uncommon sight , opening the front door to find a pile of post scattered on the floor. Some from the postman, some from somebody walking around with half a ton of kebab flyers under their arm.  The kebabs get binned, and…

Why Not?

May 25, 2015

Head to London for some carpet off cuts? Why Not?! We’re talking Comedy Carpet off cuts here, not samples of short pile patterned loop plush all weather wear…although that has it’s merits. These bits of letters are graphic design history and I had to get a chunk. Gordon Young’s project with Why Not Associates is…

Nice Package

March 8, 2015

  I like to geek out on packaging. There’s some really inventive work out there and I collect pics when something really stands out, wether it’s a carrot shaped box for chocolate at Easter or a Lindt chocolate the size of a basketball. ( Side note: that damn Lindt got me good I tell ya….

Pringles

January 31, 2015

I see Pringles as a Christmas treat. It’s strange, I know.  But every Christmas my in-laws have them out and I get stuck in. And just like Christmas, they’re gone before you know it and the 364 day wait begins anew. Tonight I made an impulse buy for those tasty stacked crisps. I began to…

Wait, what?

January 14, 2015

The other day a youtube advert made it past my trigger finger which eagerly hovers over SKIP. I got sucked in and watched these two guys tell their epic story from start to finish. They created a box that holds a drumstick that can be told through wifi to move. Place the swaying stick near…
