RHS_Bulbs_1320

As we enter the winter months of 2013, we look back over another year of working with the RHS on a wide variety of projects for all seasons. From marketing of their gardens at Wisley, Harlow Carr, Rosemoor and Hyde Hall, to materials for their Christmas retail offerings. One standout piece from 2013 was for the promotion of sales of bulbs in their plant centres – we turned to the brilliantly talented Sarah J. Coleman (aka Inkymole) to produce an illustration for the campaign, presenting the autumn-planted,...

Minding my p’s and q’s

LCBA_1320

At the London Centre for Book Arts last night I found myself rubbing shoulders with website editors and primary school teachers as we came face to face with traditional hot metal and wooden letterpress type. The three hour workshop gave everyone in the small group the chance to set a single line of metal type and their own composition of wooden letter forms. Getting hands on with such an authentic, traditional printing technique was great fun and a refreshing break from the daily digital equivalent....

Changing the face of men’s health

Tuesday 04 December 2012

The upper lips of the male contingent of Premm Design collectively participated in Movember this year. Those of us with normally hair-free faces joined with those who usually sport some degree of facial furniture to grow the obligatory moustache for the month in our efforts to promote the charity’s work, raising awareness around male health issues. So far the Premm MoBro Posse total stands at over £150 and we hope that will increase to over £200 once all the promised generous donations have...

On your marks…

Friday 29 June 2012

Following our successful appointment to The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) design framework (as featured in Design Week Fri, 27 Apr 2012), I was fortunate enough to be invited along to a walking tour of the Olympic Park. It provided me with a valuable insight into the LLDC’s intentions for the future of the park beyond the Olympics and Paralympics and it was a real privilege to be able to walk around the site so close to the games beginning. We look forward to helping the LLDC...

An E-motional Evening

Tuesday 06 March 2012

I was lucky enough to attend the E-motional Type lecture at the British Library last night, the final event of their Spring Festival. It was a rare opportunity to hear from FUSE legends Neville Brody and Jon Wozencroft, along with Adrian Shaughnessy, Jonathan Barnbrook and Teal Triggs. Each speaker was given ten minutes (ish) to make their presentation on the role of type and visual language. I thought the format was a great success, with a wide variety of topics covered; from the experimental work...
