Inspiration in the fields

If you read this blog regularly, you will know that I have left Brighton and ventured to Dorset to brave the working world for the first time. As someone who grew up in the city, I did find it all very strange coming down to the countryside and my city friends quickly nicknamed my current location as ‘The Land of Cows and Sheep’. The slower pace, the whispering winds and colossal cliffs are all regular features here. Awe is the word that comes to mind when I witness this scenery, but for others, it is inspiration. Continue reading “Inspiration in the fields”

Happy New Year my Tech Savvy Fellows

The New Year has rolled in and 2015 gives us another chance to up our game from 2014’s design, engineering and technology successes. After having a quick read of The Telegraphs technology forecast (click here for it), I became particularly interested in ‘The Smart-Home’. Continue reading “Happy New Year my Tech Savvy Fellows”

Simplicity is Key

I have literally just slowed down enough to come back to my blog. Everything has been pretty manic between a trip to Brazil to see my family and discovering that I got a full time job! I am all packed and ready to move down to Dorset now. While attempting to find all my belongings and wasting time on the net, I came across 3 Red Dot Award Winners that made me smile.

Quintessentially British

Great Britain. The land of rain, tea and the Queen. An oversized island of rolling hills, bustling cities and pints galore. But what makes something quintessentially British? Is it having a cuppa or drinking a few too many pints in the pub or the incredible continuous conversations that revolves around the weather? That is the question on George Osbourne’s lips as he asked the public to define Britishness. Not in the form of words, brewing or baking but rather through currency. Through the British Pound Coin to be exact. Continue reading “Quintessentially British”

Bike in a Bag: Kit Bike

Apologies for the lack of posts. I’ve just finished University! Officially (scary) and have had all the celebrations and serious thoughts of becoming a ‘real’ adult! Now that graduation is over, I am currently trying to strike a balance between time in the sun, packing up my house and finishing job applications. I WILL give an update on New Designers that happened earlier this month, but, for the time being, here is a fantastic 21 piece bike that fits in a bag that twist and lock together!

New Designers: Build Up

Today was the last setting up day before the top UK design graduates eagerly welcome potential employers in London’s Business Design Centre. Companies such as P&G, Mars and John Lewis will be awarding prizes tomorrow for a range of products seen at New Designers. The Business Design Centre, Islington, was bustling today with graduates painting, building and positioning their work with the hopes of being recognised, making contacts or, fingers crossed, getting a job! Now that would be living the dream hey? Continue reading “New Designers: Build Up”

The HACKcessible Project

Time and time again, I’ve heard of this project mentioned: Hackcessible. As someone who tinkers around with bits and pieces to make up for my lack of height when it comes to high shelves and other such obstacles, it seemed only natural that I would eventually stumble upon a project like this, but I never accessed their website to take a proper look until now. Continue reading “The HACKcessible Project”

Creative Classroom Motivation

Graphic design is one of those things that is so often thought of as something ‘some creative’ does on a computer. In fact, it is TOO often thought as that. If you’re a BuzzFeed addict you may have already come across this duo from Columbus College of Art, but they have got this Graphic Design ‘thing’ right.
