Ahoy there! I’m not on a ship or anything remotely nautical but just felt like saying that.
My Type & Faith project is picking up pace! I’m still adding more as I go along, but the first batch of posters are up on my website! I’m hoping to get them up for sale in the Autumn, so keep your eyes peeled if you like them! I’ll also keep everyone updated on here as I complete more designs.
If there’s a particular verse YOU would like to see featured, then tweet me!

Don’t Kill Print

I’ve just been reading this article on The Drum, highlighting reports claiming that The Guardian newspaper is going online-only, therefore ditching its printed edition altogether, in 2013.

If these reports have any truth in them, then I personally think it would be a bad move. Firstly, there’s the question of accessibility. I know of many elderly people who have grown up with newspapers, and buy them every single day, to see what’s happening in the world. Not only that, but the traditional newspaper brings together so many articles and so much variety into one publication. Does this happen on a website? No.

Secondly, there’s the Guardian’s mobile apps. I’ve tried to get on with the iPad app, I really have, but I just don’t like it. I’d much prefer to pay 20p and read through the Independent’s condensed ‘i’ Newspaper, something which brings ideas from digital and applies them to print. So before they give up on print altogether, I think the Guardian must really think about their app’s interface. It is, after all, in its first incarnation.

Digital is still in its early stages. There are still plenty of awful mobile apps around, mainly because the mobile app revolution is still happening - the app store only arrived four years ago, let’s not forget. The Guardian, in my eyes, with such a large readership of people from the older generations, would be daft to ditch print and completely rely on digital, let alone for it to happen so soon.

The Big Send Off
I was approached by the University of Chester’s Christian Union to create the invitations for the end of year formal. Seeing as it was a Summer event, I wanted to capture the spirit of this well loved season, going for a vintage floral theme, and something I felt to be in keeping with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee happening on the same weekend.

Swing Into Spring
I was approached by On the Beat Music to design the programme for their ‘Swing Into Spring’ concert with St Andrew’s Primary School. A simple black & white design was needed, so I applied a slightly 1940s vibe to capture the spirit of this musical evening.
The programmes were produced to A5 size.
