One Day We Will Look Back On This And Laugh

imagesHELLLO!!!

Sorry it has been a bit quite here lately I have been super busy.

First of all we reached our kickstarter target! (YAAAAY) so will be heading off to London in June for New Designers. So a big big THANKYOU to everyone who supported, donated and shared out campaign, the support has been overwhelming and greatly appreciated.  You’ll all be getting little gifts and rewards sent out in the next few months.

In other news I have been busy preparing for assessments and degree show. So it has been a hectic few weeks of finishing pieces, painting, setting up spaces and presenting my work. However all of the stress is over  and I cannot wait for next Friday. The degree show Space is looking fantastic.

It’s also nice to have a little more time on my hands so I’ll try to use that to keep up to date on here.

Until then go have a little looky at my Facebook page and brand new website:

‘Our House’ Olafur Eliasson

I need this book in my life (if only it wasn’t limited edition and extremely expensive)

Our house is a limited-edition artist’s book by Olafur Elaisson which was comissioned by the Library Council of MOMA in New York.  The visually appealing book consists of lasercut pages; negative impressions of the artists house allowing readers to make their way through the rooms of the house as they flick through.

AMAZING.

Amongst all of the making and writing and making and sketch-booking and making we have also been doing some Fundraising to help send some of us  to New Designers. New Designers is an exhibition for graduates and is a fantastic opportunity for young designers to showcase their talent, kickstart their career and get themselves and their work out into the “real world”

It’s pretty much the place to be!

Only 1  problem: FUNDS.  We gotta get a stand for New designers, get ourselves and our work to and from London and accommodate ourselves for 1 week. As full-time students we just don’t have enough £££ to do this by ourselves. That’s where YOU come in.

You can help a diverse group of talented, hardworking designers take an invaluable opportunity to launch their careers and show off their talent.  Have a look at our KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN to learn more about us, see some of us in action and see what YOU can do to be a part of it all. And remember in the words of TESCO “every little helps”…we might even give you a little something, just to say thanks.

Oh hey, I have a blog…

forgot about that for a while but hi, hey I’m still alive. Sorry been away watching Hart of Dixie.    AND writing a dissertation, working towards/having minor bursts of panics about this little degree show thing I have coming up…oh and Graduation…and New Designers. No big deal or anything.

Anyway here is a little photo update of what I have been up to: IMG_20121210_010349 IMG_20121214_130243 IMG_20130125_163009 IMG_20130130_174615 IMG_20130201_181140 IMG_20130211_143528 IMG_20130211_144703 IMG_20130214_122234 IMG_20130218_204015

I’ll try to keep in touch.

Farewell for now.
