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.)
Today I did a series of illustration workshops with first year LIPA students. The students experimented with different drawing techniques and also explored characters and costume design.

I was recently approached by established Liverpool hair dressers Barbara Daley to produce a set of illustrations. The illustrations will appear on packaging and other promotional materials for a new set of blended teas, created especially to benefit your hair. More soon.
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!
