Photography Day - 'You're Cosy, I'm Cold'

Went out yesterday afternoon to take some photos of the snow. I found it interesting how deserted the countryside was in comparison to how it is in the Summer whilst the crops are being collected. Here are some highlights that try and convey this, cropped and graded so I can pretend I have a Hasselblad camera.

02: Avenue

03: Silhouette

Christmas Card '09 - Songs To Keep You Warm


Not usually one to make Christmas cards, I decided to try and make a card that wouldn't be thrown away come January and everyone's lack of shelf space. The card doubles up as a CD sleeve case for a music compilation titled 'Songs To Keep You Warm'. Sixteen were made. Track list was as follows:

01 - The Miles Davis Quintet - My Funny Valentine
02 - Jessie Baylin - Contradicting Words
03 - Hall & Oates - Las Vegas Turnaround
04 - Eels - Fresh Feeling
05 - Counting Crows - Chelsea
06 - The Incredible Moses Leroy - The Color Of Sky
07 - Fleetwood Mac - I Don't Want To Know
08 - Wallis Bird - Fat Chick
09 - Ella Fitzgerald - Bewitched, Bothered, And Bewildered
10 - Curtis Mayfield - So In Love

I would have love to have sent out a ton more, it was really hard to choose who to give them to. Apologies if you didn't get one. If you're interested in a digital copy of the mix, drop me an email I'd love to send you one.

Merry Christmas ^_^

Tinsel Tat - Embrace the Nafness of Christmas

In celebration of the official start of the Christmas season and the ever nearing end of term, I've been involved with organising the 'Tinsel Tat' Christmas Party in Falmouth. The theme encourages everyone to embrace the 'nafness of Christmas' including tinsel, baubles, and Christmas jumpers you'd rather not own or have to wear.

My contribution has been through creation of posters and tickets, and the general sending of emails.

The party's tomorrow night 8-12 at Mango Tangos in Falmouth. If you're in the area it would be great to see you there...

Anne's 50th: Mamma Mia/Grub/Barn Dance/Awesome

This was a small commission I did over the summer. I figured probably wait until after the event until posting all the details about it. Had a lot of fun with the Bodoni typeface trying to best replicate it to the Mamma Mia posters. Apologies for the black box over the rsvp information.

The Final Flare Ball

This is the final output of the last month of project work. Also somewhat apt for fireworks night. Jamie claimed earlier that there were a total of 4500 keyframes in his After Effects file. Don't ask me what that means or how he did it. It looks rather nice in motion.

Another Flare Ball Concept

This is another one of the concepts made a week or so ago. Haven't seen Jamie (my software man) this weekend so excited to see what he has on Monday morning...

Interface Concept: Flare Ball v0.5

Sometimes when brainstorming/designing out an idea I like to gather some mildly relevant images from the internet and throw them together to try and make something that looks a little bit like what's in my head.

Currently working on a system design project as part of a uni project. This is sort of what it might look like at the end. Did this about two weeks ago and already it looks quite different. I'll post the conclusion when we get there.

Christ Church Oxford Rowing Stash

A friend from Oxford asked me to design a 'Jack Wills esque' hoodie graphic for his rowing team. After quite a few drafts this was the final design. I may post some of the other attempts.

Looking forward to seeing the final hoodies when they're done...
