Inspire me

I don’t know whether it is because I am eating healthily at the moment or my subject for my dissertation is influencing me but looking photographs of food that are shot really well is grabbing my attention and inspiring me. 

Phil Cook has photographed food for Marks & Spencer (one of the reasons why I found him) and all of his photographs really do look good enough to eat! 

Focusing on recipe book layout for my third year essay will be lovely I think.

Some of my work

I thought I should post some work whilst also posting inspiration I am finding over the months. 

One of my favorite projects from the last term was a book cover design brief. I designed covers for Jane Austen books. 

I am still getting to grips with loading photographs and documents onto here so I hope this works!

Sunshine & Photographs

One of the small tasks I have set myself this summer is to take more photographs. Since I live in a picturesque place that lends itself to photography it is easy to find lovely things to picture.  

I am happy with my digital camera, the weather has helped a lot to make the colours stand out and create eye catching images. 

I am going to experiment more with photography and try and make this into a book as well.

Getting started

Starting my summer, trying to stay focused on doing work whilst wanting to go out and play in the sunishine constantly!

So I am working on 2 briefs at the moment, I must admit it is at quite a leisurely pace! The first is the street talk brief and the second is a competition for Amelia Magazine which is a lovely one.

I am reading 'Tease' written by Immodesty Blaize which is great, I went to a performance of hers the other day which was absolutely stunning, full of glitz and glamour.

I will upload work soon but for now here is a little photo of the cover of the book, gorgeous in my opinion.
