The Rhythm of the Night


Earlier in the year I remember a late night at a friend's house and we were all lounging about watching TV half asleep. Suddenly one of Bastille's festival sets came up and I remember how majestic it all looked and how amazing it would be to see them live. Months later, I was gleefully presented by a ticket for their June concert by the same friends from that night and I couldn't have thanked them more. 




It was as amazing as I imagined it to be and the experience was a thousand fold more amazing than watching them on TV. They're definitely a band that sounds better live than on record. Alison Wonderland and Foxes did an amazing job as supports and I was very surprised (and somewhat annoyed) by the amount of very very young teenage Bastille fangirls who were on their phones the whole damn time (okay fine, more annoyed than surprised.) You can spot the girl's phone in front of me in that last GIF - that was my view for almost half the night.

Nonetheless, they played amazingly and was disappointed that it felt so short - but I'm just happy they at least performed "Of the Night", "Pompeii", "Flaws" and "Laura Palmer". Definitely a band to see.

I think I'll definitely do more of these typography on GIF posts with all of my other goPRO footage - I feel a bit lazy editing full length videos (but might do them in the future). Next one up will be Ellie Goulding's concert!

Useless Things

You've heard it all before by your fellow classmates -
"I put the pro in procrastination"  
"Study? What's that? Something you eat?"
These are just an example of a very small excerpt of troubled tweets, statuses and snapchats floating around during the last couple of weeks nearing the end of semester. I, myself, was definitely feeling the pressure of my last few uni projects and with that pressure comes great desire to do useless things. Useless things definitely include making a list of even more useless things to do in the holidays. (But I'm guessing a lot of my friends would argue that catching up with Game of Thrones is definitely not a useless thing.) To make it a lot less useless, I decided to share it here:



Now that today marks the start of a project-free six week holiday, I'm so excited to do all this! (while trying to fit it all in with working full time.. woooo...)

What's on your to-do list for the winter holidays?

Ampers&


Here's a piece I worked on for my current graphics class for uni. We were basically asked to create a "diagram" depicting our design journey or design approach. What I wanted to show in my diagram was that my design approach isn't a one way street. I like to drabble in many different things and usually my designs consists of bringing really different elements together. To show this, I chose to go with my favourite character - the Ampersand.

Young Volcanoes


Someone please tell me volcanoes is the correct way to spell it? The more I look at the word, the more it looks strange and I begin to doubt my spelling skills.


Anyway, here's a piece of hand lettering that has been sitting around for months. It was conceived last year in August during a workshop I attended at Work-Shop run by the amazing Gemma O'brien. During the workshop we were told to pick a favourite phrase or name to create our own hand-lettering masterpiece. Panicking, I picked the first song title that popped into my head at the time - Young Volcanoes by Fall Out Boy. After the night of the workshop the sketch was rolled up and left in my drawer and I finaaaally got around to transferring it onto Illustrator this year.

Pretty proud of the outcome. I admit it's not the smoothest Illustrator-pen-tool job but I'm working on it!

Expectations



A little piece of type I conjured up during the lead up to the influx of uni projects coming up. I have always believed in this. I'll listen to criticism and I'll always consider feedback, but in the end my work is my work. My style is my style. If I want to call it my own, I will make it my own.

Do the Logomotion



As the fifth week of semester rolls in, I'm starting to feel the pressure of a third year design student. The level of expectations from our tutors is now a lot higher and the workload keeps on piling up. Despite all this - I think it is a tad too early to be complaining. I've told myself that it is time to become more on top of things and to dedicate less time to window online shopping during lectures (probably won't).

twenty one.

It's been centuries since I've last posted to this blog frequently so I've decided to challenge myself to post up once a week. So to start things off with a bang, let's go back two weeks ago to a fun night at the Argyle where I turned 21.

Hoot Hoot

So yes, its been almost nine months from my last post - and in those nine months have been a whirlwind of adjusting to a new job, attending concerts and events, spending time with friends and family, changing my hair colour 4 times and going through uni project after uni project. So you'd think I would have had loads to blog about but I think all I had was writer's block. I'm not really a person of well thought-out words. But I've decided to stop being afraid because honestly - who reads this thing anyway?

Anyway, to anyone who is - here's a quick one! Anyone who knows me knows about my huge addiction - Black Milk. Today I received a shiny little package containing a pretty little thing called the Midnight Owls Skater Dress. And I fell in love. What's amazing about this dress is also the story behind the artwork. But you can read about it here :)

I was feeling a bit under the weather today to be in front of the camera so I played stylist and dressed up my baby sister (whose modelesque figure I envy a lot) and here's the result!

Season's Greetings


A very belated post! (This is becoming a bad habit) Been so hung up with all the festivities and work, I didn't have the chance to post this yet. Merry Belated Christmas and new year to everyone, anyone who reads this blog. Hoping you guys all had a very festive and safe holiday and that the wet weather didn't dampen your Christmas!
This year I spent Christmas with my extended family as usual, celebrating at my grandma's house. One thing I love about spending Christmas there (besides the feast and having fun with my little cousins) is the house itself. Her garden is constantly flourished with so many vegetables, fruits and flowers and her white gate has been the perfect backdrop for many beautiful photos (including one of my auntie's wedding photos!)
