About time?

The last month has been hectic to say the least, so here is a quick update in attempt to redeem myself of my poor blogging skills!  


In short; I've now flown the nest and made the leap into the big bad world. Finishing university was a rollercoaster of emotions, a celebration of achievements and teary goodbyes with some amazing friends and great tutors. Last week I attended the Millennium centre along with my fellow course mates for our graduation ceremony. A wonderful weekend of proud photographs and one too many cocktails. The perfect end to the best 3 years of my life. Congratulations to all the BA Graphic Communication students at Cardiff school of art and design! 

I've just completed my first week at Rant Media, a mobile app and web design company in Cardiff. It's been a great week, I won't say much, other than I'm currently working on a very exciting project that I can't wait to get up on here. 

In the meanwhile here are some photos from graduation.

Inspiration



I have just come across this fantastic video, giving an unusual take on the usual extreme sports videos we are all familiar with. Everything from the music to the quirky camera angles pulls you in and I for one can't get enough of this video. The colouring and music teamed with this action packed video are particular highlights for me, along with the subtly used, and stylish typography.

Check out more videos here.

Exhibition
















Above: The reason why my blog has been lacking entries and if you know me, the reason I have been stressed to the point of tears. This is my exhibition space in the Graphics studio, if you'd like to pay a visit it's at UWIC's Llandaf campus, Cardiff.

Some beautiful packaging from the student spotlight on the Die Line. Lovely detailed illustrations!
Packaging for organic tequila, if only it tasted as nice as it looks!

Reflective Journal
















For three years this reflective journal has haunted me, I handed it in yesterday and I couldn't be happier! Time for a well earned drink!

Young



Just come across 'Young' a creative agency based in Manchester. They have some fabulous work on their website, I particularly love this work done for the Royal Exchange Theatre for a competition on playwriting, especially the use of typography in the beginning! Very nice! Check them out here.

Apache

I've stumbled across a wonderful animation to end the week, a music video for the band 'Danger Beach' on Damage records.
