I’m thrilled to announce my fantastic new client, super talented Scandinavian fashion designer, Pernilla Greek! I have been commissioned to create their new brand identity, which will roll out across many printed and digital platforms. I’m so excited to get started on this inspiring new project!
I initially met Pernilla at the Melvin Galapon exhibition, where we chatted about our shared love for clean and well-crafted minimalistic designs as we admired the exhibits. If you’re interested in avant-garde work, visit Pernilla’s website and learn more about this fascinating designer: pernillagreek.com
Over 40 years ago, Atl Aicher and his team brought the 1972 Munich Olympic Games to life with their bold and beautiful designs that became the revolutionary identity system for the Munich games that it is today.
Last year UCA Canterbury in the UK celebrated his iconic work by hosting an exhibition of posters, informative designs, pictograms and a range of print and promotional materials from the 1972 Olympic Games. The exhibition was held at the Herbert Read Gallery and if you were lucky enough to see this great exhibition, comment and tell me all about it.

If you’re a fan of American graphic designer Herb Lubalin, or just a fan of superb graphic design in general, you’ll love this gem from Unit Editions. This limited edition monograph features the works of Lubalin from 1918 to 1981 and covers the beginning of his advertising career, all the way to his status as one of the most influential designers in history.
It’s a great addition to any designer’s book collection and makes a perfect coffee table book for the reception area. You can get your very own copy here, for a cool $140.
I just came across this lovely collection of posters within a poster and couldn’t wait to share it. The poster features designs by the legendary designer Wim Crouwel and was released to coincide with the Wim Crouwel exhibition entitled ‘Wim Crouwel – A Graphic Odyssey’ that was showcased at The Design Museum in London during 2011.
The poster also includes text by Adrian Shaughnessy, in case you were wondering!
If you love this poster as much as I do, you can purchase a copy over at Print Process.
Really excited to be working with Denis Mallet at DMWorkroom. His knowledge for typography, the latest printing methods, quality, functional graphic design is unbeatable! I’m also hoping his knowledge on coffees from around the world will also rub off on me.
Went along to The Kemistry Gallery in Hoxton on Saturday to catch Mr T: The Posters of Jerzy Treutler – a celebration of Treutler’s work from the 60s & 70s, and classic Polish poster design. The exhibition marks his first solo show in the UK and the gallery proudly presented a selection of over forty of his prints, including classic film, sport and event posters. It was so inspiring on so many different levels from grids and structure to colour and typography… and illustration.
Anyone not familiar with this great charity needs to visit their website! (www.fiftyquid.com). The celebrity photographer Lou Denim uses her experience and celebrity contacts to create a photography collection that raises awareness of the difficulties experienced by the world’s most deprived people. I’ve been fortunate enough to be commissioned to create the branding for this great charity!
The Research Liberation Front is a dynamic organisation of research revolutionaries dedicated to setting research free by pushing boudaries and finding creative solutions to problems. I have worked on a variety of projects with them in the past and was again flattered to be asked to design the branding for a new awards ceremony called The Badge of Courage Awards honouring Ginny Valentine.
A need to create order and rationality in my world inspires my graphic design, and more recently my photography and my digital art. This particular image went through a series of construction, deconstruction and reconstruction… teaching me to free my thoughts of detail and perfection.
There may have been a huge shift towards digital in the last ten years but there’s still a phenomenal amount of graphic talented designers with a real understanding and appreciation for quality design (hopefully that will never diminish). This is a small selection of some of the print samples i have been asked to review recently.
Great news! I’ve been asked by Pearson Education to redesign the Primary and Secondary educational brochures for their Caribbean market. This is the kind of project i relish, huge amounts of information to categorise, structure and communicate effectively. Looking forward to working with Rachel Wakeley and her team.
