I need CS4

Okay, so I was going to spend the rest of this evening updating this blog with work, but everytime I try to open something on my mac it won't let me because I've done all the work on the college macs which are on cs4...I still have cs3, so I cant upload anything for the minute, sorry folks you'll have to wait.


Our biggest brief this term has been to come up with an identity for a new typographic gallery/museum. My gallery identity was based on the idea of redeveloping type over the years, and I also wanted to redevelop a block of flats as my building. So I came up with the name, RE Gallery. I wanted to give my building a new face to it, and wanted the name to built on to the sides of the walls, with the letters R and E, meeting at the corners of two walls. I eventually got to this logo, which is based on the perspective of the letters on the building.

Time For An Update I Think....

Just realised today that I have not been on my blog in soo long, so I thought I would let you know what I've been up to, if you're still there?! So next couple of posts will just be a mix of some of the stuff I've been working on this term...

This is one of the one day briefs we've had this term, had to make statistics look interesting... My design detailed the amount of trees cut down in certain countries over 3 years, a very interesting topic indeed... I actually think each little "forest" might look nice as little Christmas cards (I'm getting a little excited already!).

Jeffrey Docherty

Not really sure why I haven't properly looked at this guy before, because I've seen the V magazine covers which he designs lots before...but anyway, had a look at his stuff, and I quite like it, particularly the most recent stuff.

Romain Lenancker

Just found this guy called Romain Lenancker, he's a French designer, who enjoys incorporating paper folding into his work. Particularly like this work, but I can't seem to find out what it was for. Photography is by Bocos Sebastien.

Tidying My Room Finds

So I took some photos of my finds from tidying my room, and these are the prints that I thought I liked, but I'm not sure if I do anymore, they're quite funny though, I think they're meant to be of me.

And these are some of my beanos, I think I kept them because I thought they would be worth something, but they're all a bit wrecked.

I found the photos of our desks

I just found these photos that we took in the studio on our last few days of second year, where we were a little sad to say goodbye to our desks when we had to clear them, so we stuck everything to the walls.

Tidying My Room

So yesterday I was clearing out a lot of crap from my bedroom, I have this corner in my room, which is (or was) just literally filled with boxes of old stuff, and I decided it was time for it to go, as I had been putting off getting rid of it all for years. It resulted in an afternoon spent going through old school jotters, a box full of animal figures from the Early Learning Centre, about fifty Beano comics, and the occasional summer special, certificates, Lion King magazines, marbles and loads of other random things. I also found some old drawings, a couple of which I actually really like! They were prints, and I really like the effect, but have no idea how i did it, which is rather annoying, I will have to take some photos. I also discovered that I had a walking stick when I was wee that I got because I wanted to be like my Papa, I found it quite funny.


Just came across some images of a magazine I've never heard of but wish I had. It's called Demo and it's a non-profit magazine which hopes to bring light to undiscovered musicians. Really liking the typography, and kind of reminds of what I was doing with my book on typography, maybe just a tad better though...haha.
