If that’s what your thinking, read this article and get an insight into the process designers around the world go through daily. Enjoy : ) Read the full article here.
I came across an interesting gallery on my travels recently. Although the gallery was shut, after knocking I was let in by the artist Maurice Golotta. I love meeting other creatives and having a friendly chat about their work, what inspires them and life in general.
Maurice was a cool dude and his artwork was equally awesome. A mix of bold colours, typography and imagery finished using a variety of techniques including large screen prints and small canvas prints finished with a resin coating for a high gloss look.
Above you can see a couple of photos I took whilst in the gallery. You can check out more of his work here.
Stop Lambeth Council and Network Rail ripping the heart out of our Community
The independent shops and businesses in the Brixton railway arches in Atlantic Road and Station Road are at risk. Their landlord Network Rail, in partnership with Lambeth Council, propose to evict over 30 units in order to complete a facelift, estimated to take over a year. Once completed, tenants will face massive rent increases of around 300%, which in effect, will exclude them from the area where generations of these families have served the local community for over eighty years.
