BA Graphic Design Exhibition

Last night I went to the private viewing of Glasgow Clyde College: Cardonald Campus’s BA Graphic Design exhibition. It was great to see both my classmates and my own work up on display. Samples of our books were available for a closer look at the real thing, and it was great to see the progress made over the last year. Here’s an image of my boards on display. Some samples of our work can be seen on the graphics website here.

Inspiration: Misconceptions by Jess Wong

99U Quarterly

I recently came across 99U Quarterly magazine, a magazine created for designers on how to turn your ideas into a reality. I love the style of the magazines as they each feature similar styles but are exciting in the creative way they use typography to convey the information. I’ve always been a fan of bright, bold typography and instantly fell in love with the layouts and often use them as a source of inspiration. You can view the magazines here.
