Blogging stuff I like

One long weekend, a boat load of OSB and 1000 screws equals one new studio for Liquor , a company that specialises in hand pulled, water based screen printing. Now up and running in the OSB box, here are a few quick snaps of our hard work!


“Those were the last days of disco, Those were the last days of having fun, From New York City all the way to Frisco, We thought it’d only just begun”

I have an affinity for natural and raw materials at the minute and for a an office fit-out I am currently working on I am looking at reproducing some of these elements. I think they will look great with a splash of contemporary furniture and lighting against them! Although I am struggling to locate a supplier of reclaimed wood like this in the UK.

So this morning I received an email to inform me that I have won the Brightest Spark competition from this years Interior Design graduates. I am so pleased with this, it means my work will be going to a third exhibition in October with the winners and runner ups from each creative course at Sheffield Hallam University.

“Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery, Cantor Building, Sheffield, 8-26 October 2012.

The best of Creative Spark as judged by industry professionals, this exhibition showcases the top students on each creative course. If you enjoy Creative Spark – You’ll love Brightest Spark!”


We Like Rob’s first episode of 6 Seeds was released last night – check it out, I am sure you will find it as funny as I did! It is written by and stars Charles Hopkins, the brother of a good friend of mine down under (she cameos in the promo vid!).

Well, Creative Spark’s opening evening is over and it was great! I was so overwhelmed initially with so many people looking at my project, but overall it seemed to get a great response. One of the funniest moments was my Tutor describing my project and design to the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor John Campbell. Apparently he was interested in my proposal to re-instate the currently dilapidated old head post office! I couldn’t look or listen and made a sharp exit to the other side of the studio..

Viewing my graduation project!
