Computer Arts Issue 153


I got sent a couple of photos by a friend this morning of this months Computer Arts Issue 153 which features me in the first page of the exposure section. I’ll try and pick up a copy whilst in Hong Kong tomorrow, it looks great! Huge thanks to Luke ONeill and Ed Ricketts at CA for inviting me to get involved and I guess as they say, its available at all good book shops!


InCase You We’re Looking…

I have bought a couple of InCase products for my Apple equipment recently and I have to say they are fantastic. I bought a slider protective cover for my iPod and the backpack (shown above) for my 17″ MacBook Pro and all the stuff that goes with it. They are producing lots of really nicely designed, well made and thought out bits for all your Apple equipment needs, check them out

Cassette Badges to Be Exhibited!

I was delighted to be asked to create (for the first time) a special full set of all 12 variations of cassette badges which will be showcased together in an upcoming exhibition in London (More details and photos to come). Thanks to everyone who bought a set over the past year or so.

It’s Nice That, apparently!

Thanks to Will Hudson at It’s nice that for posting up my new mailer. I have had some great feedback from many people on it so thanks very much. Some really positive responses from Sydney agencies too so watch this space for news on a job over the coming weeks hopefully.

Web Designer Magazine Issue 149

I was delighted to hear that my Cassette badges have been chosen to be featured in the upcoming issue of Web Designer Magazine they will appear in the Hot Stuff section of Issue 148 – on sale 28/08/08.

New Poster/Mailer Photos!

My CV/Poster mailers were delivered from the printers today and look great. Printed on Cyclus offset which as well as being 100% recycled gives them a lovely tactile, fibrous quality. I went to the printers to see them being produced and have added some new photos of the process in the projects section of Effektive and also in the CV/Poster folder on my Flickr. The CV’s have been folded and packed and are heading out Sydney mailed in their sealed plastic bags as I write this. Fingers crossed they work!
