My son created this video for his yr12 A Levels Graphic Communication final piece last year. In the video he uses several techniques of paper folding, hand drawn images and stop motion, to combine all the work he did throughout the year in the final project. He did get an A for it! The video is his idea of how to promote the British Museum in London.

Week before last I went to Pulse on the Sunday. It was very inspiring, particularly the Launchpad section featuring designers new to the market. Here are a few that caught my eye:

this book as soon as (actually, before) it was released. The name was tempting enough, but as soon as I saw the cover I knew I would need this book. I waited 3 months for it to arrive, which it finally did, 2 days before my birthday, which was perfect timing! Here are a few photos I found online of the inside pages of the book. Absolutely stunning 'normal' family homes filled with character, beauty and love. These homes are not 'designed' by any means, and have been photographed beautifully (by photographer Simon Griffiths) in their natural state. The story (brilliantly written by Leta Keens) that goes with each home is fascinating, telling the history of each home and the people who live in it. Highly recommended!

Wow it's been ages since I last posted.... my mum's been visiting us in London all the way from Sydney, so we've been busy with lovely outings, plays and musicals. On Thursday night we saw the Lion King which was great for all the family. And on Friday we saw Peter and Alice with Judi Dench! Amazing to see her live on stage! The play was absolutely brilliant overall. On Saturday Mum and I went to Fenton House in Hampstead - a lovely National Trust property - because she was interested in the harpsichord and old keyboard collection there. The house and gardens were stunning as well!
