I’ve been watching the build up to the Olympics for a while and indeed have seen this banner in my hometown of Chiswick for weeks, each night on the 94 bus stop at Turnham Green Terrace. Today I walked past it before going home to see the closing ceremony and wanted to capture its sentiment. […]

‘Special’, ‘Process’

6th August 2012

The use of the humble Process Magenta and Process Yellow as some of the London 2012 colours has allowed the games to become immediately distinctive. These colours are two of the four inks that feature in standard printing, from newspapers to literature and the smart thing is, that by using these, allows some collateral to be […]

When the torch relay came to Kew my daughters were there. As Samsung and Lloyds representatives handed out flags, clappers and ribbons the girls waved and bashed their handouts in sheer joy of the torch soon to arrive.Then the Coca-Cola truck came by – reminding them of the drink only allowed as a treat now […]

They say, ‘What goes around, comes around.’ and this seems quite true for the world of design and motorsport. Surfacing on Nick’s desk recently, the beautiful 1986 Austrian Grand Prix leaflet alongside a rather identical angled 2012 Singapore Grand Prix version.

The Great and the Goodwood

13th July 2012

The sun held out on the last day to create a truly ‘glorious’ Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012. Beautiful cars were driven as nature intended and the usual eclectic mix of die-hard petrol heads rubbing shoulders with young bronzed champagne-fuelled ladies.
