My next hit single.
Sorry blog, I’ve neglegted you – but here is some good news!
Recently I raided the Dover archive and found some amazing copyright free images – far too many to write funny accompanying text for. To help me finish this series I am going to upload a few images at a time and ask people to tweet their ideas for captions. I’ll be giving away a free A3 or A4 print in exchange for any ideas I use. Please tweet your ideas to @get_real_paid with the number of the image your text relates to.
So, I’ve been off work with the flu for the last few days and haven’t been able to concentrate long enough to watch a film, but somehow managed to make some new Churchill quote posters. I started following Churchill Quotes on Twitter only to find it was a thinly masqueraded NLP workshop – perhaps Winston is an icon in the same way Henry Rollins seems to inspire American business men.
This is a preview of my first book for the wonderful AVA – you can pre-order it now from Amazon. ‘Design Research’ is the second book in their Basics: Graphic Design range; I also co-authored the third title with Gavin Ambrose, the soon-to-be-released ‘Idea Generation.’
“A graphic design project can be viewed as a series of choices – the more informed these choices are, the stronger the outcome will be. Research is the tool that, above all others, can help you gain the in-depth knowledge needed to inform your choices and make the most appropriate and educated decisions.”
I’m finally selling some of my cards online. Previously they have only been available in selected retail outlets, but now I am unleashing them on the world.
A friend and I were talking about getting older and how every sharp pain now seems to signal imminent death. He said he was on a train earlier that day and had a bit of a strange feeling in his chest and thought to himself ‘so, this is how it ends – on a packed commuter rain on the way to London.’ As funny and depressing as it was, the words stuck with me. So I made this.
I am going to sell it through my Society6 shop, but I’m not sure who would by such a print…
The typeface is AW Conqueror Carved, and it can be found here.
Slightly inspired by the Facebook motivational posters, a failed screen print attempt, and the wonderful F37 Neue Grotesk, this set of posters seek to highlight many of the areas often overloked within contemporary design as there is such a focus on technology and technique. While these things are important, we should also embrace the simple things, like being way from the computer. There are more of these to come, and I might sell these at some point.
We’ve made some new greeting cards!
These bad-boys are ready for Valentines day and are currently sold exclusively through the wonderful Number 83 in Westbourne, Bournemouth. Please see below some images of the cards, complete with whizz-bang instagram-style effects.
I will possibly be selling these online soon, but please get in touch if you would like to buy some before Valentines days and I can make some arrangements…
Well, my neighbours are having a party that they assured me would be over by 12.00. It didn’t end, so I thought I would re-visit the Alice in Wonderland posters. I’ve updated all of them and added two new designs. The typeface is still Reina (designed by Maximiliano Sproviero of Buenos Aires). You can purchase the older versions through Society6, Artflakes and Big Cartel, but I may switch to these fairly soon.
