I still have a couple of prints available in the Grand Neue Haiyan Print Auction. 100% of the proceeds go to the Disaster Emergency Commitee Philippines in support of their current relief efforts in the Philippines, so get bidding!
I’m very proud to be part of the Grand Kind print auction raising money for the Philippines Disaster and Emergency Committee alongside a whole host of talented artists. Check out the auction, buy a print and help us raise money for those in need: grandkindhaiyan.co.uk
Over the past year I have been busy working on my first book, with the most excellent Rockport Publishing. Titled ‘Paper Cut’ this 192 page book brings together 25 of the world’s leading papercraft artists and illustrators, delving deep into their working practices through in-depth interviews and rarely published behind-the-scenes imagery.
Now in it’s final stages I want to say a huge thank you to all the artists involved in this project. I’d also like to thank Chris Clarke for helping me design the book, Nick Redgrove for his proof-reading expertise, and everyone at Rockport for getting me involved in this project.
'Paper Cut' will be released in spring next year. Keep your eyes peeled for further details.
I was recently asked by ShortList Magazine to rework their logo for their 300th issue alongside the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier and Jimmy Choo: www.shortlist.com/the-shortlist-logo-challenge
My design was inspired by the Selene spacecraft, which launched in September 2007 – the same month ShortList began. The spacecraft orbited the moon for a year and eight months.
My work is featured in the new book ‘Petite Typeface’ by Hong Kong publishers Designerbooks.
I’ve just arrived back from a fantastic week in Helsinki visiting Agent Pekka. The trip coincided with the launch of a campaign I worked on for Outdoor Finland promoting a service that let’s people send compliments to one another, something which Finns are supposedly not accustomed to. The text translates as “Hey you, I love travelling to work in the morning because I get to see you at the bus stop.”
Great to be featured on the cover of IdN magazine this month along with a big feature and interview.
