Last month I visited some studios in Amsterdam (again), which involved another really enjoyable visit to Dolly Rogers. As a thank you for once again putting me through their unique form of torture – Powerpoint Karaoke – and giving me some really great feedback on my work, I created a little something for them:
The poster has now found a happy new home in the Dolly Rogers studio.
Today was my last day at Tilt. Me being me (obsessed with cakes), this seemed like the perfect opportunity for some Tilt branded cupcakes as a thank you.
Throughout my time at Tilt tea seemed to be a running theme – who’s turn it was to make the tea, whether you put the milk in first, whether the colour of the tea looked weird today… those guys are NUTS for tea, which as a non-tea drinker amused me constantly. So it seemed only fitting that the cakes should be chai tea flavour, and they went down really well.
Continuing the tea theme, look what they gave me!
A mug with everyone at Tilt on it, done in the style of their recent Facebook campaign for Real Gap (if you haven’t already seen this then have a look – the song from the video will stay in your head for WEEKS). I can’t say I’ll be drinking tea out of it any time soon but I’ll definitely be enjoying copious amounts of deadline coffee from it.
Thanks to Chris, Dan, Jon and Sas for making my time there really enjoyable, I’m quite sad to leave because it means having to face the looming and terrifying prospect of third year!
Then you can help me out with my self-initiated project by filling out this questionnaire.
I’m doing something on encouraging students to cook for themselves more rather than relying on convenience food, inspired by my flatmate Ollie’s one-a-day pizza habit. Not much to say at the moment because I’m still in the research stages, although I have found some really interesting theories on cooking being the thing that makes us human.
That’s right… biscuit typography!! I’ve been thinking for ages about doing something like this – annoyingly Anna Garforth got there first and has done a better job than I ever could have. It’s beautiful though. I wonder if there’s a job out there that just requires someone to make typography out of foodstuffs? If there is, I want it.
