New London Map

I move to London on Monday! Can't wait! My girlfriend is in what I believe they call the nesting stage, she's buying lots of bed sheets and pillows and tea towels and stuff.

To celebrate our move I thought I would blog this nugget of information. Designer Mark Noad has redesigned the London Underground Map. Traditionalists are probably chuckling to themselves thinking how can someone improve on such perfection that is Harry Beck's London Tube Map. But after looking over the redesign it makes a lot of sense. Noad has included geographical accuracy, something Beck's design sacrificed in favour of visual simplicity. Find out more about the map here.

 This is a video I did when I was starting out as a creative person. I thought it was lost but earlier today I found the video on a disc tucked away in storage while clearing out my parents' attic. The video is a collection of photos that my Dad and I had done in photobooths while I was growing up.

It's been a while since I updated this blog and so much has happened in the last two months I'm struggling to remember it all. This post will probably be a bit disorganised. Right now I'm looking for a place to live with my partner in London as I've been offered a job as a junior designer in Notting Hill. I can't wait to start but flat hunting in London is not easy, especially when you live no where near London.

First of all, I finished University with a first! On the 2nd June 2011 I finished my three years at University College Falmouth.

My wedge of work for assessment. This is rotting away at the back of a cupboard now.
Two of my brand books freshly printed and bound.

And then there was the end of year show.

My work in the end of year exhibition.
After submitting my work to the D&AD student awards I was lucky enough to have it nominated. So on the 16th June I headed off to London to attend the D&AD awards ceremony with Sam Morris and Pascal Raabe who were also nominees. I'd never been to an awards ceremony before so it was a very new and exciting experience.

At the end of June came the sad moment I had to leave Falmouth for good. Sad times. Here are two lovely arty photos to remember Falmouth by.

The view across Falmouth and the docks.

A very arty shot of my girlfriend and the view from my window.

I am no longer living in Cornwall, instead me and my girlfriend are living out of my parents house in my home town in the Midlands. After moving back home I traveled back to London to attend D&AD new blood, a big exhibition/festival to show off graduates work to professionals in the design industry.

 This event has proven to be invaluable in helping me find a job. When it finished I started getting emails from companies asking to meet. For the past three weeks I've been bouncing back and forth between home and London attending interviews. It was a tiring (and expensive) couple of weeks but I have finally been offered a job position. Starting in august I will be a junior designer working in Notting Hill. This brings us to where I am now, trying to make the move to London. If anyone knows of any good studios to let or flat shares don't hesitate to get in touch. All I've been doing lately is flat hunting. And it's boring.

So there's a very quick update of my post uni life. I've still got a long journey ahead of me, but I'm hoping when I'm old and have to wear a nappy (many many years away, or not) I can look back at this blog and remember where it all began. That sounds incredibly corny but I'm 22 now and you start thinking about this sort of stuff.

Anyway, I'm rambling, peace out.

ps. I was just handed this cool photo of my great grandad.

Only two weeks left

In two weeks time I finish University for good! My time at UCF will be done. The last three years have gone so quick. I have been fortunate enough to be a D&AD nominee! Which is amazing!!! That means I'll be going to the big flashy awards ceremony next month and I'll be in the D&AD book. Today I sent my Dogs Bollocks entry to Design Bridge, so if I'm lucky maybe I can get two wins in the bag (crosses fingers).

Anyway, lots to do, here's some photos of recent events.

Easter Holidays

Keeping this one short but sweet.

It's two weeks into the Easter holidays with another two weeks to go until the start of my last term at University!!! Lots of new stuff coming, including new projects and a new website (it's that time again, when I get bored of the one I already have and do it all over again).

Btw as of June I'm available for hire!!!

D&AD submitted

Today was the deadline for my D&AD student competition brief sponsored by The Partners, and I'm happy to say it was sent off and submitted just in time! Many a sleepless night I have had over that project but despite being a challenging brief I'm glad I did it. Wish me luck.

Work and Aspects logo

Been very busy as of late, resulting in much inactivity on this blog I'm afraid. I'm currently over half way through my last year of university which means soon enough I'll be venturing out into the big wide world to find work. Something I'm looking forward to and am slightly intimidated by.

Last week I went for a day trip with my parents to St Ives and while we were roaming I noticed something I had worked on while at Nixon Designs.

This was a logo I created while working with Chris and Darren. I created the roundel mark which Chris and Darren tweaked a bit, they then added the rounded typeface below the logo. It's the first logo I have professionally produced (hopefully the first of many), so to see the logo out in the public eye is very exciting!

I'll be submitting my entry to D&AD on Monday. Wish me luck.
