Did you have a good Christmas and New Year? I hope so. Mine was great, until a bout of food poisoning led to 2011 fizzling out and 2012 beginning with a whimper. To tell the truth, I don't feel on... Continue reading

More on the subject of the designed meaningfulness of web-enabled objects. Since I studied English at university I've been interested in Sigmund Freud. I know he means lots of dodgy things to people, but I just think there's something interesting... Continue reading

This is my new notebook. I really like it. I spotted it in Foyles on Charing Cross Road. Nice and simple colours. It's like a school exercise book, but just different enough. I like how the white lines keep things... Continue reading

I love this film about the stickiness of Sugru. It speaks to a bit of me that's more and more interested in makeshift, ramshackle, improvised solutions to all kinds of problems. Not just from a thrift point of view, but... Continue reading

I wrote this thing for the D&AD recently. It's possible, indeed highly probable, that you've never heard of me and are coming from over there to see who on earth I am. Anyway. In my piece I make the point... Continue reading
