The Festival of Nature is the UK's biggest free celebration of the natural world, and I'm taking part in the Bristol Festival 9th - 10th June 2018. It's completely free, full of amazing workshops, interactive activities and a nature focused art market, which is where I'm turning up! The Festival is a platform for people of all ages and backgrounds to see the places that we call home in a different way, and to better understand how nature impacts our lives, health and wellbeing. It's open on Bristol's waterfront on Saturday 10-6, and Sunday 10-5, and I'd love to see you there! Click the photo for more info.
My next live event is a Design Led Lifestyle event hosted in the beautiful tourist town of Stratford Upon Avon. The event runs on 7th July in the Town Hall 10-4, click the photo for more info.
My final (so far!) event of the summer that I'm turning up in is an exhibition at The Old Mayor's Parlour on Hereford's historic Church Street. The exhibition runs from 9th June until 9th August and is open every Tuesday to Saturday, 9.30-5.
A few months into being at moo.com now, so when an invitation commission comes along, I automatically think: "that would look great on a postcard."
Hope City Hereford, who I have had great pleasure working on a number of commissions for, have built a new premises and wanted to shout about their opening ceremony...
Other ideas included:
A charity in Hereford City wanted to document building works of a new premises. As no stranger to building sites from my days of working with a Property Surveyor, I got involved and just a little dusty!
My lovely big brother is marrying a fine lady this month. They asked for a table plan that represented meaningful Italian cities, so of course I got straight down to work! Can you recognise any..? If you can't, please don't tell me!
Following my brochure work earlier in the year (scroll down!) I was approached to create another series of architectural illustrations for a commercial property undergoing a complete overhaul, so that the development company could attract new tenants before the work was completed.
As a happy coincidence, I had also drawn the architectural plans for the property whilst working through my Uni summers, so knew the old girl quite well already!
A slightly distorted Streetview image of before work began...
With a spot of imagination...
I'll aim to add an "after" image once work has finished.
Lately I've undertaken a body of work for a property development company, creating a brochure and its contents from scratch to assist a large scale planning application. This involved research of the people involved, scripting the proposition, illustrating architectural drawings, providing photographs and finally designing the layout and hand binding each proposal. I wonder if I get a bonus if it's passed..?
