Floating head

Tim sent me this...He's also been showing me some cool music vids he's been doing.

T26, Emigre, House Industries...

I feel like a kid in a sweet shop...I'm actually allowed to BUY fonts at work for the design I'm doing.

'But it's like $150.'


Yippee! :)

We're not northeners, we're midlanders!

IRN BRU & CLUBS!!! And The Inbetweeners. Just caught Bev's (now ex) boyfriend out playing multiple girls and lying about him having a gf to bed them. Haaa! Then he shit himself when confronted and removed all forms of contact. What a pussy. Boys actually make me laugh.

Willow Smith

Willow Smith (Will Smith's daughter), aged 9 and signed to Jay Z's label.

London Fashion Weekend

was shit! What a pile of rubbish. Now I'm sure Fashion Week was much more exciting, I'm sure they didn't show the same trollop to the celabrrrities, but the stuff there was worse than market day down Nuneaton. There were a couple of good stands, I saw a lovely sheepskin coat that cost £250 but the majority was drab. Oh well, maybe all the good stuff had gone, I wouldn't know as didn't even stick around for the catwalk and just went shopping on Oxford Street instead! :) The goody bag from LFW was alright...included a sample of Chambord, Elizabeth Arden night cream, Label.M curl spray, a sharpie, some cereal? and a few other less memorable items. Ok so I won't be completely negative...the free Jacques cider was actually delicious and I might become a regular drinker from now on. But yes. Monday morning reviews. Tea ONE sugar. I'm cutting down. Rain & Optimism.

Good & Evil trailer (old skool)

I stumbled on this whilst 'researching' at work and it brought back memories. This trailer got me into Explosions in the Sky except at the time I couldn't find who did the song...but I was in maths class one day and Danny Lee started whistling the song and I was like 'OMG..! DO THAT AGAIN. WHISTLE THAT SONG. WHO'S IT BY!?' And the rest is history.

Yesterday I took part in the Seat Sex Drive at Prodrive Race Course in Kennilworth. The event was basically a way for Seat to promote their cars and the brand by getting people to partake in a boys vs girls race car challenge. Initially I thought it would be a bit naff but it turned out to be way better than I expected. Seat really put a lot of money into this one!

So what did I have to do? Well, I decided to challenge my good friend Tom Wood. We turned up there at half 8 for registration where we were given our own racing tops (Seat sponsored of course, as was everything) and sat down to a lovely full english breakfast. The mix of fellow competitors there was quite interesting, a lot of them older and proper petrol heads. A lot of them already had a Seat too! We were then briefed about the day ahead and introduced to our team captains! Vicki-Butler Henderson and Emma Willis for the girls and Jonny Smith and Jack Osbourne for the boys! I really didn't think the presenters would be there for the filmed auditions. We were then split into 3 groups and went our separate ways to start our first task.....PITSTOP CHALLENGE.

This was really interesting...4 cars...dismantled...teams of 5 still boys vs girls. Task: Put the car back together in under an hour. You were given a manual and 3 joker cards which meant if you were stuck or needed to buy time you could use these to get the technicians to help you for 3minutes only. Of course the girls lost this one but it was SUCH FUN! Had to fit brakes, tyres, lights, roof rack, fuses, window wipers and even a baby seat! You then had to drive out the garage to prove the car didn't fall apart. We still managed to be the best girl team of the last 2 days by completing it in 32mins. The last joker card we had was used to make the technician to press ups!

Then came a tasty lunch and our second task. Possibly my favourite one as I'm bit of a reckless driver....GLADIATOR ARENA. I was really impressed with this one as we had one car to two people and different (fit) instructors so there was no waiting around. Prodrive had set up a giant skid pad with sprinklers making it nice and slippy!!! Here we had to practise things like j-turns, avoiding obstacles (inflatable cars) at high speeds and doing handbrake turns in donuts. AMAZING! Well chuffed about learning j-turns shame I can't do them in my own car! This was also a really good way to get a feel of the Seat cars themselves and I definitely came away wanting one. Wish I got some photos though!

Last Challenge: COPS & ROBBERS. A coach picked us up from the stunt driving and dropped us off a a very bendy race track where we were greeted by 2 Seat cars made to look like cop cars and a getaway car with 2 professional race drivers dressed up as criminals. Our challenge was to, in pairs, chase the robbers around the track, pick up any of their swag bags they had threw out the window and beat them back to the finish line. They made it trickier by making us swap over drivers half way through and avoiding obstacles like a baby's pram. Definitely the best challenge of the day for getting your adrenaline going! I only wish we could of had another lap! Sadly, me and my partner lost my about a second to the robbers but Tom successfully did it the jammy sod! At the end of the day the judges/instructors added up points according to how well tasks were completed and picked 4 pairs out of the 50 that were there to go through to the next round. Unfortunately neither me or Tom made it but we had a bloody good time and learnt a few tricks along the way. 10/10!

Plateau - FREE FONT!

It's not very often I put up my own design work on here. All I've posted about recently is cars and cameras. Boring! But this time I'm giving away a little freebie...aren't I lovely!? This is a typeface I developed called Plateau, aptly named after its flat form. It was intended to be a text face but because of the strong design elements within it, would sit more comfortably as a display face. Now don't get too excited. Unfortunately it only comes in lowercase (minus a letter 'P') and the kerning is slightly off. But I'm more than happy to let people use it. (What would be really nice, would be if you could send me a pic of the context you used it in.) So if you would like this free download just click ----HERE----

Below is a selection of the material I used to promote my typeface which included a booklet on how it was made. (All from painstaking hand drawing!)

*Next week...NIK NAK GIVEAWAY!!!*

b+w expired film continued...

Got this developed for free off Silas because it turned out so bad with lots of lights leaks etc. Lesson of the day: Never use 20 year old expired film for important photography projects. Here's a couple of the ones that just about turned out.

LOL!!! Cheers Dario for sending me this...

snippet of my summer (b+w)

Developed these negs today...the film is proper old, kodak tri-x pan from the 80s so they turned out pretty rubbish a lot of them, proper grainy but I just wanted to test the film out. More to possibly come if I can print out some better ones. Been taking a lot more photos recently which has been keeping me happy but I actually want to do a pre planned shoot for once instead of random pictures. Any suggestions? hmmm...

So I get home after a fabulous time in London (big thanks to Sydney and the people at Hat-Trick) and what do I find in my room? Not one, but TWO of these bad boy spy zenits!!!
Also, my brother crashed the first car I learnt to drive in. Good and bad times!
