Should be seeing more of these in the next couple of months.
Collaboration with Lottie.
Film in progress
Here are a few screen shots of a film I’ve been working on recently about the Inn’s of Court in London. Currently trying to be a bit more experimental with moving-image, overlaying etc…
Over the last one or two years, I have been working with the hairdressing salon Fourth Floor in London in order to update their website. The idea behind their new updated website was simply just to show a short film that in a sense would celebrate the style and background of the salon, whilst not necessarily focusing on the obvious subject of ‘hairdressing’.
Working with North who have managed to develop a very strong identity for Fourth Floor over many years of working together, the premise for the film was that some scenes would take place in and around the salon whilst others would be filmed in the city of where the products are originally made, in Padova, Italy.
All the shots were filmed and directed by myself. Having started filming in late 2011, the final edited version is finally live online, which you can view here. The music in the background is specifically created by Rob Bagshaw.
I would really appreciate if you could take a look at the film. It’s quite a slow film but only a minute and 52 seconds long so try to hang on till the end if you can. Click here to be directed to the website.

Light Show: Hayward Gallery 30 January - 28 April 2013
The Hayward Gallery is hosting an exhibition starting today under the title ‘Light Show’ which explores how light is used to sculpt and shape space in different ways, showing works that have been created between now and the 1960s.
It will be interesting to see how the gallery curates such an exhibition as each piece of work will be very different to the other with regards to colour and scale, and also what the walkthrough experience will be like. I’ve seen Anthony McCalls light projections before at the Serpentine (the predominantly blue image above) which was really nice so I’d be interested in finding out how McCalls work is shown in the same gallery as the colourful nature of Carlos Cruz-Diez’s work (also shown above).
There are some big names in the exhibition like Dan Flavin, James Turrell, Jenny Holzer, and Olafur Eliasson, amongst others. I’m a big fan of light installations and after viewing the images above, it looks incredible and is definitely on my to-do list.

Fourth Floor: Cards and Packaging
I took the first four photographs shown above a while ago inside the hairdressing salon Fourth Floor. They are now being used as wraparound stickers for the salon’s 2013 box-packaging.
AGI Open 2012: Identity by Hamlet Auyeung
Some nice work from Hamlet Auyeung in 2012 to promote the AGI Open event in Hong Kong. Each year AGI (Alliance Graphique Internationale) hold an event hosting some of the world’s best graphic designers. Last year it was based in Hong Kong, the year before in Barcelona. This year it will be held in London for the first time ever in September. This is something truly not to be missed.

Comedie De l’Est: Claudiabasel
Following from the same kind of theme of my last post, Claudiabasel’s work shown above for Comedie De l’Est uses a printed grid to apply a more handmade touch as a second foreground layer. Really nice lettering and combination of different mediums.
