A Present for My Grandma.

A Present for My Grandma.

Like most web designers, I barely use photoshop for its intended purpose. It’s obviously a very powerful photo manipulation tool, which happens to have an added bonus of having everything you need to create designs for beautiful web sites and apps. Arguably though, its real power lies in the transformation of raw camera footage, into […]

Shooting video with a DSLR.

Shooting video with a DSLR.

One of the features of my new Canon 550D is being able to record HD video. That and a really wide aperture, means that I can shoot drastically hipster videos of my friends and I at our ‘Gout Nights’ (horrible name, I’m sorry). This is a night when my friends and I get together, drink […]

Amateur Photography.

So my Christmas present to myself this year was a Canon 550D camera, with a little prime lens. I’m not quite sure what I hope to achieve with it, but I can never expect to master my field as a visual designer, without understanding the basics of photography. With that in mind, I bought this […]

An A-POLO-gy from Nestlé.

In August 2013 I wrote a letter to Nestlé. A week later I found myself on the home page of the Daily Mail, and in articles across The Sun, Huffington Post and Yahoo News. It’s my first (and probably only) experience of going viral, but what’s interesting is how the story spread and the reaction it received. Here’s […]

Part of the problem.

One of my favourite lines in the first Die Hard movie… If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Quit being part of the f*cking problem and PUT THE OTHER GUY BACK ON! This is a sort of ink-blot, homage to that. It was created using a series of paint splat […]

Doodling.

It’s been a while since I’ve turned to Adobe Illustrator to start a project, mainly because of a lack of any branding/logo work. So to keep the skills fresh I’ve been brushing up by turning some of my doodles into vector artwork, before moving to photoshop.

Video: Timelapse

When I found out that Quicktime has screen capture functionality, I went through a phase of recording everything I was doing at work. Other than showing me that I spend an inordinate time in the loo, creating this video actually helped hone my photoshop skills. After I’d shown the video to a senior designer, he […]
