the postcard holders have arrived, this is what they look like:http://www.3ddisplays.co.uk/displays/brochure-wall.htm

and Jim's thoughts about A1 stuff:

Any pref re. tablecloth colour? O.K, mountboard - it can look good if you decide to use it. You would have to transport quite a bit of it down, in A1 folios. I would recommend it myself. The other option is to stick with double sided tape 3cm strips of millboard on the top and bottom of each printout so that they hang down, but off the surface of the board. This is what I did last year with the large printouts and worked well. You could do a test - I think just sticking them on looks a bit cheap.

Ok... D&AD meeting Monday 22nd at 11:30am... we need to have ideas and visuals, and be prepared to make yourselves heard!! We have to pretty much finalize everything on Monday.. also if you see and graphics crew pass the info on. GO BIFF!!! We are going to blow those london colleges away!! woooo!


hey guys,

so i missed the meeting on tues but i hear everyone is very unhappy about the post it notes idea, i too think this has been done many times and would not do our work any justice... why did no one say anything at the meeting!! well, i've just emailed Jim to propose two other ideas (courtesy of Lizzy).. frist idea is that we each do a handrendered letter to make up ILLUSTRATION and get it printed massive, or we print ILLUSTRATION in a simple typeface outline and colour all over the insides of the letters... what does everyone think?

Hey guys, thought I'd post up a couple links for future reference

First one, Goodprint UK, is where I got my business cards. They're pricier than Vistaprint, but often have good sales. There is one going on at the moment, plus this 50% off promo code that is valid until June 18th "MAH238"
Goodprint has a variety of options like the shiny gold cardstock mine are on, and in general their paper and print quality is very good. They also offer rounded corners (and you can pick which corners to round if you want round and square) for only 2 quid extra per 100 cards.

The other link is for crafty things - Craft Superstore. They have nice and cheap cellophane sleeves and envelopes or blank cards with envelopes, and even with the cheapest delivery option my orders have come two days after I placed them.

Room for July

I was just wondering if any of you are looking for a room for July? I'm booking out of here the 3rd but I've got my place till the end of the month. It's 300 quid if anyone's interested.


hopefully some people will read this in time...

Would five people be able to volunteer to help me get the tables for the shop tomorrow? we need to get them from the textiles studio in hunter building. it will take 6 of us as there are 3 big tables. Harvey has put me in charge for some reason... Argh. thanks!

Back to normality.

The blog hasn't really had much of an artistic theme of late so here are a few illustrators that I've come across during the last year.

A sudden brainwave!

Does anyone own face paints, or know where we could cheaply buy them? Then we could paint the faces of kids and hippies at the meadows festival for a good whack? Who else is enthused by this idea?


OK so harvey told me to contact stewart cordiner about the shop and what we can use and i did and apparently he wants to meet with us at 3.30 today. PLEASE can a few of you come. PLEASE. I dont want to have to go alone!!! Urgh.
