With the same folksy approach to life, all things humble and all things pretty (made out of felt and handstitched). After I responded to a Facebook post, the team met me at my office to give me a free copy of this months issue, they papped me next to the cutout zebra, had a look around, photographed some of my paper models and that was that. Lovely to meet them all.

In an increasingly digital world are we beginning to lose sight of what real interation is?For PhilipsSound we challenged people in Camden to try Philips headphones and if you think they're better than yours, then you can keep em. For PhilipsLighting we hit up Greenwhich market to Give Light Back this winter. Shorter days are now not so gloomy....watch this space for our Christmas video... Its a jolly one.
It was time. Time to stop thinking about paint and colour every night of every day.I now have dreams and nightmares about not painting. Its a bit crazy but its true. So I started....and these guys helped me along...long may it last. Paint makes me euphoric.

AQA the examboard who brought us limbo, limbo like me, needs theri new site and collateral printed artwork illustrated....we tried tesselatign classroom objects, jigsaw books, cogs (cos you gotta). Working with young creative team Claire and Elena on this so hopefully Staurday will be full of light and inspiration..... we've now moved towards an identity involving twisting threads representing teachers, AQA and students all working together to get through the A-level changes.
Yep the Pizza lads want some gourmet illustations and an instagram app for their fb page. So this morning after collating their new list ingredients, I sketched all the elements, scanned it in, switech it into duotone with Dominoes blue and then in illustrater traced some fill shapes and added a grain texture to all of them before multiplying the shapes onto the background.

One weekend, two girls and two laptops later. From concept to creation, Party in my Mailbox was a collaborative project between me and Chloe Watts from Saturday to Sunday.. After going to Deconstruct in Brighton last Friday we decided it was time to start The Hackettes. Designers and developers together making stuff, pointless or puropseful. Partyinmymailbox is a service aimed at young creatives to help them get a personal email to match their site or blog.

|My first sketches that I sent to Kate.|
|Kates designs showing how we wanted a contrast between the gold and the concrete.|
Kate documented the journey for me so now I have these lovely photos of her process. From her studio to the "gold man" from pliers to a blow torch. Beautiful work. Thanks Kate.....next project...concrete soap dispensers...

The final edit and we are pleased but there is a lot of improvement to be made for the next one.
The next one I think will involve a limited colour pallette and hopefully will invlove animals and forests.
So watch this space for more animations with paper.
I was asked by Washed Out and Philips to create a social campaign to launch their new site The Sound of Creation. Pulling nine quotes from each of the sections from the site I created nine visual posts that would be launched on the Philips Sound facebook page.

|This was the set that I drew to model from.|
|Heads, hands, feet, weapons, hills cloud and mountains. These guys had a ball!|
I received a brief to pitch a project to go up for one night in Tooting Art Market so I approached Kate Innes and Henry Fraser to assist me. We drew up an idea based around Kates final year project around monsters. I was keen for the project to be experiencial so we combined our visions to make monsterbuild- An interactive dressing up project which brings out everyones innerchild. Like a photobooth but more fantasy orientated. Our wonderful friend Henry Fraser came along to film the project and whist eh await for me to finish the credits for the mini movie here is the first edit.
|Off I go complete with new Lumix/Leica Lens Camera|
|I painted Ionas hair the night before with Fudge paintbox pink flamingo.|
|These girls were fanatastic, bumbags n all.|
Fudge.com launches in September and I went to SGP to take some photos of the hair that attended. SGP is famous for its crazy dressers, catsuits, glitter and masks a plenty so off I went and between the mud romps and the dancing I managed to capture a few beauties. Watch out Brixton Village you're next!
