I haven't posted for a little while, so this is an apology. I am currently working on my new website which when completed will be viewable at www.fivesandzeros.co.uk. The website will act as my online portfolio and means of contact for hire and other things.
My blog will run along side it acting as documentation of all my work as I am working on it. The final outcomes will be found on the website.

(The website is up now, but not finished, my identity marks are currently viewable though, along with contact details).

Words of wisdom

After reading the editorial of the current issue of Grafik magazine, I came across a short, but sharp motto of wisdom. Given to Angharad Lewis (Grafik's editor) by her friends dad, who also happens to work in independent publishing. She says to imagine it in a South-East London accent:

"Keep buggering on, Angharad, keep buggering on."

She says it always gets her through the days when she feels nothing is going right. A motto I think we can all relate to.

New prints

I have 2 new prints for sale on my new Society6 store.
One is the Gill Sans piece I posted a few weeks ago, and the second is an art print of my rather popular 'Low Ink' pillow/tote bag designs.

The print looks like this:

Inside spreads

Three samples of how the inside spreads of the magazine look.
Each double page is based on the same grid structure and equal column widths.
The black bars above blocks of text indicate the beginning of an article or a new section within an article. Each type of article is colour coded and featured in the top left of the spread.

The body text is set in 11pt Adobe Garamond Pro, and the image references are in 8pt of the same face.

The finished article

My final magazine photographed alone and next to 'competitors'.
I am extremely happy with the quality of the outcome and the professional look of the whole project.
