My D&Ad Talent Profile is now published on the D&Ad website!
I was very excited when I saw it up there this morning! At the moment it’s on the first page! It’s just got my most recent work on there, but it’s amazing to be part of D&Ad new blood and to be on the website!
I can’t wait for the NewBlood exhibition! Bring on July!
Proctor and Stevenson and UWE Degree Show.
Last Monday I started my three month internship at Proctor and Stevenson. I’ve already felt myself grow in so many ways! My photoshop skills have been put to the test, and my design knowledge has been pushed, but I’ve so far loved it! I’m enjoying working in a studio, being part of a team, getting involved in actual briefs and working for a client with specific instructions. It’s a completely new experience for me, but I’m loving it, and so far, think it’s going well!
The UWE Degree show at Bower Ashton also opened on Friday. These are a few pieces of my work that made it into the exhibition. As a total, eight pieces of my work were chosen for the show, and spread out over the room. All the work featured was either created within my chosen subject of Organisation, or as part of my submission to ISTD. Overall I’m pleased with my pieces that went into the show, but I was a bit confused as to why all my work wasn’t in one place, or that we didn’t have a particular part of the room to represent us, it was a bit confusing and you couldn’t really get a feel or the context of some of the work, but other than this, I think the show highlights the course well, (just not the individual designers).
However, there is still some really nice work around the exhibition, and if you’re in Bristol for the next week, or happen to be around Bower Ashton, come and have a look at our show!!

On Friday @DandAD_Talent had a #TwitterAnnual day. Setting one new brief an hour and choosing the best ones to go in their TwitterAnnual book. These are a few of my entries.
The brief’s ranged from selling more tea to the french, recreating ‘The Early Bird catches the Worm’, Advertise recycling, Yellow and creating a new front cover for the 2013 D&AD Annual which comes out later this year. Over the day there were ten briefs set, and you could just pick and choose which you wanted to enter. I really enjoyed working quickly and creating such a variety of work. We went a bit mad at the end of the day, but it was fun, and I’m glad I took part in the day!
This week we launched our Level 3 Publication, ‘It’s All About Terminology’, based around the theme of ‘Commercial Artist’ and celebrated at the Looking Glass in Bristol. The publication itself explores the language and the terms of Art and Commerce. We celebrated with drinks, music and a live twitter feed engaging people with the conversation, and allowing them to explore the term themselves. It was a really good night, I decided it would be a perfect time to use my Fujifilm camera and loved it! Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate!

Today I Will, Today I Won’t.
Yesterday I got my Today I Will, Today I Won’t finished books back. These books show an exploration of hand-drawn typography, they highlighted to me how I work with motivational techniques, and what I regret not doing everyday. I’m really pleased with how my books turned out, I love how they still feel like sketchbooks, and how the prints turned out complimenting the simple type on the left page.
