Recently I’ve been having numerous discussions with my good friend Chris about doing more with all the random ideas and small stories that often develop during our (mostly daft) conversations. The majority of the time these ideas only ever serve to offer us some amusement at the time of creation and never become anything more tangible. However, that is hopefully now going to change as we’ve started to develop an online home for our creative thoughts. It’s still a work in progress at the moment, but the one thing we’ve decided is that, simply, this site is there for us to display work that we enjoy and which,  hopefully as a consequence, others will too. I’ll keep you updated on any developments.

N.B. The picture in this post is from a recent story I’ve developed with Chris which I’ll post about here soon.

There’s not much I can say about Wim Crowel that hasn’t been said before by those a lot more eloquent than myself. But anyone with even the slightest interest in graphic design and typography should check out his current exhibition at the Design Museum. ‘Wim Crowel – A Graphic Odyssey’ celebrates over 60 years of Crowel’s work, and is a fantastic visual journey through his highly acclaimed and much admired career, including some of my favourite pieces for the Stedelijk van Abbemuseum and the incredibly forward-thinking and highly influential, Neue Alphabet. Here’s Wim talking about his work:

The exhibition runs until the 3rd July, and the price of entry also includes admission to this years Brit Insurance Designs of the Year, which is also well worth a look.
