It's the time of year when many of us consider our lives - our present, past and more importantly our future. In order to help with this head-scratching puzzlement we're reading Paul Arden's WHATEVER YOU THINK, THINK THE OPPOSITE. Former executive creative director at Saatchi & Saatchi, Arden shares such gems as 'It's better to regret what you have done than what you haven't', he tells us that 'There is no right point of view' and that 'If you want to be interesting, be interested'. All good food for thought. But, my favourite (for today, it will change tomorrow as... Continue reading

Booked our favourite couriers to take a couple of boxes print along to a long standing client. Very impressed they sent a cycle courier... with a trailer. Even more impressed that he's riding fixed wheel (good core stability for stopping power!). Continue reading

My ten year old daughter has announced that she wants a Hollister hoodie. She wants one so much that she's prepared to spend £50 of her own money on one. Oh, and she would like a Blackberry for Christmas if Santa can't stretch of a iphone 4S. Where did this come from? I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, we're raised to make brand decisions from day one - are you a Pepper Pig follower or a In the Night Garden follower? How influenced are we by what our friends like/ watch/ listen to? As a parent starting to consider secondary... Continue reading

The deadline for entries into the Cardiff Design Festival Awards 2011 passed at midnight, and we've entered into the brand and website categories this year. After winning the Brand award in 2009 for Macario Lewin, we've submitted the RGB brand into this years Brand category.

The new brand reflects the company’s values and aspirations. As such, it’s bold, confident and accessible. The brand reflects the technical capabilities of the... Continue reading

A recent visit up North took me the foot of Antony Gormley's magnificent Angel of the North. The steel structure which stands at 20 metres tall and 54 metres wide is a fitting testament to the industrial heritage of the area and in my humble opinion worth every penny of the reported £1 million it cost to create and construct. Whilst kicking around Gateshead I took the opportunity to visit the home of one of my arts branding crushes - The BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art . Another awe-inspiring industrial structure (former flour mill) sat on the south bank of... Continue reading

A little project to build myself a single speed 'hack' for my daily commute has taken a little longer than anticipated, but here it is finally after two years! Built from an old 90's Peugeot road bike I stripped it down, resprayed it and got my good mate Ade at Fresh to apply some very retro looking graphics. I tried to keep the components as simple and 'old school' as possible getting most of these from the nice bunch at VeloSolo. I rode it today for the first time and thank goodness, it didn't fall apart! Continue reading
