Finding A Grid

Now I have a bit of spare time I can document some projects from my last 2 terms... this was an old summer project that never actually got handed in...

We were to find and document grids in our surrounding environments, and I looked into grid systems within Retro Electronic Audio Equipment. There are 20 double-sided pages for 20 pieces of equipment- one side a studio shot with the make/ model, and the other side a head on view with the grid of that model outlined. Book binding was closed so I used a basic method of binding that required no stitching or glueing- the prints were done on thick card, all held together by elastic bands and cover boards.

YCN entry

Collab with Morgan for YCN. After changing which brief we were doing 3 times we finally decided on doing the 20th Anniversary of Sonic- with less than a week before the deadline!

We designed an envelope that integrates the value of a poster with the portability of a letter. From the outside this appears to be a traditional piece of mail, but on opening the individual unfolds and reveals a poster of the first ever level, which became the foundation of the game, and is still incorporated 20 years on. This is not a piece of mail that will be discarded, it is a piece that could hang on ones wall, free stand or be simply treasured.

Stop frame animation of opening process to follow soon!

I love freecycle

A few crates of design mags were offered on freecycle so snapped them up straight away. I got about 150 issues of a combination of Wired, Icon, Wallpaper and Viewpoint magazine- all recent copies from the last couple of years. Banging. Included was a cover of Wallpaper done by Dentsu, one of my all time favourite design companies. Check the photos!

Final Print

San Fran

Just came back from a study trip with GdI, where we had a week in San Francisco which was incredible. I will be making a book of the experience.

Screenprint Induction

Over a year and a half of waiting and I finally get my screenprint induction. We had an afternoon to do a two colour A3 screenprint, so I used a random design that I knocked up the night before. Me and Jono shared a bed. Thats right.


Finally got a suscription to Its Nice That!

For my bookarts extension studies I am thinking about how to get people reading more through interaction with books in different ways. This is a quick mock-up of a book that could also be used as a bedside lamp.


I finally got round to getting into letterpress for a few days... her are few experiments based around the number 36

Audio Tooth Implant

I smashed up my teeth in a drunken fall and need to get them replaced... my chance to get one of these badboys! A miniature audio device implanted during routine dental surgery. Information is received from a mobile phone, radio or computer and resonate through your jawbone to your inner ear.

I gathered a load of stereos, record players, radios etc. from around the house to photograph- luckily Ojay collects this kind of thing so there was plenty to work with. I used the photos in a book based around grids in retro audio equipment, but they also double up as research for my personal project. Check out a slideshow of the gear here!

Happy 4th Birthday iPod

I got my iPod 4 Christmas' ago and it's still going strong... the screen may be a little cracked but it looks cool and it forces me to listen to music I own but don't usually choose to listen to. Winner.
