Trail running in Yorkshire

Quick post. Over the weekend I went off to Yorkshire to run with the fab Due North. I have taken part in 3 of their events now, and enjoyed each one thoroughly. Although I had a terrible cold and slight strain in my hip I ran the stunning 14 mile route, starting in Grassington and then through Burnsall. The weather was completely insane, and very challenging at times because of -3 degree temp, high winds and blizzards with intermittent bursts of sunshine! Thank you to Mel, Sue, Hillary & Sarah!

I’ve recently been working on a sans serif corporate typeface for a logistics company (whilst at Nonconform). A lot of the characters have been built from scratch, but I used Avant Garde Gothic as a base. I’ve created Book, Book Oblique, Bold & Bold Oblique weights. (Click on the image.)

I’ve been working on x2 sets of gates for the Grow Speke community garden. They are now installed, but not quite finished! I had brightly coloured glass discs made by the brilliant Definitive 1 that will be welded to the gates over the next week or so. They glass is in 4 colours representing the colours in the Grow Speke logo. Once they are all finished I’ll add a full section to my site. The gates are made from Corten steel and will rust naturally.

I’ve not had much time to post anything recently, so here’s a VERY BRIEF post. I’m working on an exciting new project that aims to transform a derelict wasteland into a thriving community garden. I was asked to design gates that will bookend the space. The gates are currently in production. I’m working with a wonderful group of people who have helped me transform a pencil drawing in to the real thing. There’ll be glass elements incorporated, thanks to Definitive 1. I will be posting a detailed blog and full section on my site soon! Read more HERE follow on Twit etc… Go and volunteer too!
