Spreading the word about dyslexia

Monday 10 February 2014

Reedeeng_1320

My weekend was brightened up by the arrival of the Kickstarter-funded book by Sam Barclay, ‘I wonder what it’s like to be dyslexic’. Not only is the book a beautiful example of typographic design, it brilliantly highlights some of the issues people can have if they struggle to read. 50% of the profits from the sale of the book will be donated to Dyslexia Action. There are still copies available to buy and I hope that Sam’s ambition for people to share the book with friends...

A sign of the times

signpainters_1320

Two films showcasing the talents of artists from different continents inspired and entertained in equal measure last night as a group of us went along to the London Premiere of ‘Sign Painters’ and ‘Horn Please’ at the Roxy Bar & Screen. Brought to London by Ghostsigns (AKA Sam Roberts), The Sign Painter Movie celebrated the craft and skill of traditional American sign painters – charting the rise, fall and potential renaissance of the art through interviews with a variety...

Jan-07-Blog_1320

2014 has arrived and with it a brand new colour of the year – PANTONE® 18-3224 or ‘Radiant Orchid’. We’ll be keeping an eye out for this ‘harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones’ in the coming months. It will be interesting to see if it pops up in any of our own work between now and 2015!

Brilliant Beautiful Bulbs

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...
