I was determined to do something creative today, and here it is. It could make a nice wrapping paper for Mothers’ Day.

I drew it in pen and ink in my Moleskine which I am mostly not brave enough to use, it being rather nice and all!

I have just finished a 3 month internship. Having finished uni well over a year ago unconvinced that design was really for me, I really wasn’t sure whether I’d see it through. However, it was fantastic, and I’m being kept on! For the next issue at least.

Working in a creative environment has really brought me back to where I need to be, in my head, to be creative. Not only have my design skills and creativity come back tenfold but also my confidence. Being trusted and completing something as all-consuming as a magazine redesign has been a huge learning curve. Stressful at times but always enjoyable, I’ve learned a lot about a lot of things! I believe that this is owed to the fact that I did this in a very small publishers and worked with some great people. I would now recommend it to anyone doing any design related course, it really gives you a feel for what it would actually be like to this for a living, both the good points and the bad. There is a huge amount of debate as to whether internships are ethical etc, my advice would be only, look for one that fits you.

My favourite bit of the design is the navigation, which works like a colourful phone book with a side bar for each of the areas featured.You can see it below.

It was a scary few days waiting to see the mag once it had gone to print but it was well worth the wait when it arrived! Backpax also has a new website for its new look.

Inspired Times has also gone to print so I’ll post some photos of that too when I get it!

TYC is a new project to showcase creative people under 25. It is run as a WordPress blog which is nice and accessible. This is a feature about me which can be seen here (notice the ‘recent’ photo!).

It’s really great to see work from people my age. These are Anna and Emma‘s blogs, friends from uni who are also on TYC.

If you fit the criteria and would like to be featured go here!

Let me know what you think please, it’s unfinished, any suggestions welcome. I will finish when I get time! Click the pic for full size.

Some sketches I’ve been working on for a book about Marmite. I’ll put the one thats being taken to completion up, when its complete.

Basically the idea will revolve around scraping the dregs out of a pot of Marmite, but without the tattoos (shockingly someone else had this idea too).

So this week I will be mostly doing two jobs, jobs being like buses of course. It feels good to be working hard on something that I can really get my teeth into.

I’ll keep you posted on further developments and should have the final piece ready in about a week.
