..my blog......

Very much overdue……

So I’ve been a bit slack with my posting but the plan is to get right back up to date asap so I keep all you lovely people  in the loop with what I’m up to….
My last post came just after Origin last year, which proved to be a very worthwhile experience and I will be applying again this year. The shows new venue and setup suited me very well- running in line with LDF brought in a new type of clientèle, and opened my work, along the the other exhibitors, work up to a much wider and varied audience

Here’s a little pic of  my stand at Origin 2010 and below I’m doing a bit of threading at the show

And a few pics of some of the commission I gained from Origin

and another

So thats a little about Origin 2010…….my minds on the go now thinking of new ideas for Origin 2011 if I get in that is…..bigger and better hopefully!!!

I’m in Tangible……

Tangible- High Touch Visuals is a new book out which explores the blurred borders of graphic design, illustration, art, interior design, architecture and craftsmanship. Following in the footsteps of Hidden Track (2005) and Tactile (2007), Tangible presents further developments from the work of young designers and artists who are experimenting with this multidisciplinary approach and creating outstanding original “tangible” designs.

Gestalten.tv also has a video interview with Julien Vallée who created the cover and chapter plates for the book.

Or even better if you would like to purchase this lovely book visit Amazon

I may be a tad biassed but it trully is an inspirational book. It’s predessor Tactile proved to be an indispensable tool during the research for my final year project. I advise anyone who loves to rebel against the digitally dominant age we live in and get there hands stuck into the make and do side of a project, that this is the book for you.

Enjoy!!
