YCN due tomorrow!

Sorry for my lousy blog last week up till now. Have been quite stressed! I will improve soon I promise!

Here's a little preview of the YCN brief "Why let the drink decide". The idea was to show the message using the dictionary. Instead of having the dictionary's definition of the three keywords; pain, regret and pressure, we used personalised definitions. What do you think so far?

Will put up the rest later when they're completely finished! Now, off to town to buy some boards for the images to go on!

Adieu! -N-

as we love the internet...

D&AD brief -Ikea

These are my final images, what do you think? Please feel free to critique! :) I like it harsh people!


I've just handed in D&AD, feels good to finally be finished. Even though, I don't feel as relieved as I thought I would. I suppose its because of the next two hectic weeks of dissertation, YCN, self promo video and the saatchi competition that has to be done!

The sun has been out all day, warm enough not to wear a coat. Feels like a good day!
Now for a little bit of YCN before I fiddle a bit more with my referencing in my dissertation!

A bit of Cheryl?

Todays been a long day. Been at the library, printed off my D&AD brief and started mounting it. Uni is so expensive! Have to go to the library again as some of the images didn't print out right.. but first, a little nap!

oh! and got the next brief from Saatchi recruiting! We are to recreate an ad that we like, as well as present it and then put it on youtube. Have to do a bit of thinking for that, but I think it was a really cool brief!

bzzzzz-y bee

Been working intensely on illustrator these past couple of days to finish D&AD. Its been going well and I think I'm pretty much done. Going to see Mike my tutor tomorrow for final retouch-tips.

Saatchi announces the third brief on facebook tomorrow, so the first thing I'm doing when I wake up is check their page!

Now, I'm going to continue watching 'Becoming Jane' on BBC iplayer!

Good night everyone!

Ring Ring.


Sorry for the temporary silence here on the blog! Was busy catching up with Steph in London,
I also met up with my highschool friend, which was fun. He looks the same! Wonder how he sees me?
Since I've been back in Lincoln I've been making my D&AD ads, will put them up here soon! Have one
left to draw, but not really sure what to do yet.. the illustrations are looking a lot better than I expected though, so thumbs up to that!

gotta get cracking on the ads again...

Ciao for now!

 Arthur S. Mole and John D. Thomas photographed thousands of soldiers to symbolise American history.


Going to London today until saturday! Unfortunately, the Karmarama visit has been prosponed, but I'm still going to visit Steph and have a London night out.

Spent the morning helping Nadine and Tom out in the studio. I should be a photographer. No.. advertising is what I'm destined to do, but I really love it.. Took a few photographs for D&AD as well, a bit stressed out about it as it needs to be "pre" finished for monday. eek.

Tom & Nadine playing it cool

Meg and I did a bit of modelling for them

3rd year studio, my desk is right behind Nadine :)

Keep you updated!

If weed was legal..

it might be packaged like this:

Print magazine made some cool packaging for weed .. makes it look rather cute and innocent.

A love story

A beautifully made stop motion animation, of a girl daydreaming of how her life would be like with her crush. The storyline and the "old camera" look of the clip reminds me a little of the movie Up. Its sweet and brings a smile to your face.

From dust to design?

In my last blog I posted a video of a Scott Wade (USA), making designs from the dust on the back of dirty cars. Although I cant find the video, I've found some of the designs he has made.

"I have dementia"

Delaney Lund Know Warren won the pitch for the Department of Health and are currently doing advertisements about people with dementia.  I think the strapline is really simple and clear, with a strong message.
