Missing Letters: Two

Missing Letters: Two

The first in the series for this blog can be found here. I wrote a post a year or so ago all about missing letters. From that point I have carried on collecting examples of missing letters. It gives the idea of degradation, that these letters may go missing and either spell new words or even words that a baby would be proud of. I really like the idea that I don't have to go far to find some very funny examples of them. On the whole this is not really a specific…Read more
Wow! What a year!

Wow! What a year!

For the past few years I have reviewed my previous twelve months. So here's to another quick post about what I have been up to.  This time last year I was preparing to start my job as a Junior Graphic Designer. It's been a year of learning and gaining loads of knowledge and experience about design and designing for printing. I have gained a lot of confidence in my work and have been able to develop my understanding of design and what I enjoy about the process. Along side that I have been…Read more

Early bird catches the worm! – Photoblog – Shingle Street

I've always been an early bird; (it sort of comes with the territory of being a Finch, haha). Waking up and getting going doesn't really daunt me. I know it can be something people don't look forward to but I have found its a bonus that I can happily get up early and go and capture the sunrise, in various places around Suffolk. As I spoke about in my comeback post, I have been too busy recently. But I have found solace in going around the local area; catching the beauty of the…Read more
Photography Calendar 2017

Photography Calendar 2017

I have been photographing stuff for the last 5 years plus and I have considered selling my photographs as prints. Recently I have been asked multiple times whether I sell my work so after a busy couple of months, I have put together a calendar for 2017 of photographs I have taken this year.  The calendar has 13 unique images all from different locations within Suffolk and these are all current 2016 images. I suppose this has been a long time coming; I have both taken all of the photos and designed the…Read more
I’m Back (hopefully!!!)

I’m Back (hopefully!!!)

So hopefully, I'm Back, It's been a busy couple of months, both at work and in my everyday life. It has meant that I haven't been posting on here, or really getting to do some of the things that refresh my soul. I thought I would just post a quick blog to just let myself in gently to maybe lead to a more acceptable posting schedule. Finding time to do anything outside of the busyness can lead to the feeling of letting people down sometimes. I know thats not the case but it can…Read more
36 days of type – 2016

36 days of type – 2016

36 days of type, is a project in its third edition that aims to bring together Designers, Illustrators and Graphic Artists to create characters from the alphabet for 36 days consecutively. The day before the project, I stumbled across the fact that it was starting up again. At that point, I did consider trying to partake in it, but didn't have any idea of how I would do it. It wasn't until the first day of the project that I went for it and looked at designing the something everyday for the 36…Read more

Photoblog – Walberswick

Walberswick has a rich history. The small village on the coast of Suffolk has a population of around 380 people. The village itself is right next to the sea, but also boasts a nature reserve and marsh land that is full of wildlife and photo opportunities. I hadn't been to Walberswick before to take photographs. Jamie and I decided to go for a trip out to explore it. One of the images we both wanted to get was of the Old Westwood Marsh Mill. Now decaying and dilapidated, the mill sits proudly above…Read more
Beneath the Skin

Beneath the Skin

Having studied Graphic Design at University, it is in my psyche to look at the design of anything that I pass, hold or read. It can be a weird thing to the people who maybe don't have that same feeling about the subject. It maybe singles me out as a geek on the subject. I will walk down a road and start shouting out names of typefaces, and whether the Kerning is right on the typography presented in front of me. I know it can be really boring to the people who have…Read more
Photoblog – Ipswich by Night

Photoblog – Ipswich by Night

Night or Low light photography, is something I'm familiar with. In 2012 when I was studying for my A levels, undertaking some low light and long exposure photography for my coursework. The image below is one I shot back then. It is of St. Mary Le Tower in the centre of Ipswich. I was asked by my friend Andrew if I could give him a few tips on how to take photograph in different situations. The best way to explain it is to actually go and do it. We decided to go for…Read more
The Night Manager: Title Sequence

The Night Manager: Title Sequence

Not many TV title sequences have really caught my eye in the past few years, until around 6 weeks ago when the series ‘The Night Manager’ started. The trailers drew me in, in the first place, as they had the same theme as James Bond with international villains, spies and working in the shadows to help the British government. Sadly, the series ended a few weekends ago, but the titles have left an impression so I felt I would write a little post about them. If you haven't seen the series, I would…Read more
