Website updated

Alright so I've been very busy with University since starting again in September. It's my final year and I am preparing myself for graduation, sorting out projects to update my portfolio and apply for placements. I have recently updated my website and put up some of the newer projects I've been working on. Soon I will be moving my blog onto a wordpress blog I created over at my domain. Still working out the kinks then I'll be all set to go :)

Photography Books

It's been such a long time since I've posted. Here is some of the work I've done over semester 2. The photography on Reflections is done by myself and the photography on "The Roots That Bind Us" is by Ellie Armour.

Busy busy busy!

Alright I've been very neglectful of my dear blog here something I'll admit I am not very proud of! Whilst I have been drowning in a backlog of work and semiotics lectures I have been looking at and thinking about design. I have been keeping up with my readings in particular and have to recommend this book here:

Know Your Onions has so many different graphic design related tips, think you know everything well think again! This book has been a source of inspiration and help. The book itself is almost like a little moleskine sketchbook and provides pages to doodle and write notes for each chapter (again very useful!). Beautifully bound and has a lovely home made feel. If you've read my blog by now people will have gotten on to the fact I love collecting graphic design books/magazines. Any recommendations for me? Please leave a comment.
