Due to impending move to Birmingham, I instigated #GlugBrum, but later passed it over to LISA HASSELL, DIRECTOR OF InkyGoodness, when my destination changed to Stockholm


In July I collaborated with Piece of Cake and Oli Frape and produced a food-themed story-telling event in Portabello Market called Food Stories: West


WHILST BEING A body model for  his lettering on humans project, which inspired his temporary tattoo workshops at the tate and v&a


JUST BEFORE LEAVING, MY GRAPHIC DESIGN CLASS GRADUATED FROM SHILLINGTON college. So much fun being a teacher, super proud!

Shortly after my move to Stockholm (after 14 years in London), I was asked to be a judge in Bunch Design’s #PrintPoetry competition


And I WAS ALSO ASKED TO contribute AND INTERVIEW AND CASE STUDIES to Becoming a Successful Art Director, an introductory resource for design students to the world of art direction. It's being written by Steven Brower and published by Bloomsbury/Fairchild in december


During my move, I also co-curated the biggest Comic Sans event ever having graced the graphic design industry since its inception; Comic Sans for Cancer AT THE PROUD ARCHIVIST, London


And a big group show with Emma Taylor, Jonathan Knowles and 10 artists called #Bagsie, also at the proud archivist in London
