British Design 1948-2012

I can’t explain how excited I am about the plan to visit the British Design 1948-2012 exhibition at the V&A in June.

V&A exhibitions are always creatively laid out with stunning graphics and interpretation

‘The V&A’s exhibition, British Design 1948–2012: Innovation in the Modern Age, celebrates the best of British post-war art and design from the 1948 ‘Austerity Games’ to the present day. Over 300 British design objects highlight significant moments in the history of British design and how the country continues to nurture artistic talent and be a world leader in creativity and design.”



Gone to the beach!

Cypus Wedding InviteMaria and Phil are a very special couple who are off to get married, in Cyprus, in July.

They needed an invite for their wedding reception in UK, when they return. Now, Maria is a lady that knows what she likes but also likes things a little different. No flowers and swirls for this girl! Beach huts and sand were the way to go. It made the process fun.

I hope they have a truly wonderful wedding and I look forward to raising a glass of champers to them at the party.

Biggin’ up PSPR Creative Communications

Philippa Stagg – the lady behind PSPR is a whizz at all the PR and copywriting magicalness (is that a word? I’ll ask Philippa next time I see her – she’ll know).

We met when working on the website. Philippa worked for DairyCo and I re-designed their website. She has now set up her own company any is a joy to work with.

Check out her mini site:

Octavia’s Bookshop wins award

Just heard today that Octavia’s Bookshop is a regional winner of Business Growth Fund initiative!

They are through to final where Octavia could win individual mentoring sessions with Dragon’s Den Deborah Meaden. And if that’s not special enough, they are finalists in The Telegraph Magazine Britain’s Best Small Shops awards – winner to be announced on 22 Feb in London!

I’m so proud and happy to have been able to design their website for them:

Logo in exchange for cakes? Yes please.

Well Fi is my aunt so when she said she needed a new logo for her and my cousin’s home baking business, who was I to refuse?
Especially as I was offered payment in cakes!

We talked about colours and styles and Becky sent me a page from an interiors magazine, showing the colour palette she was thinking about. So I got to work.

I really wanted to give it a kind of fifties feel/ american retro diner. You can now see it at work on their website.
