It’s all fun and games…

We haven’t posted for a while but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy – because we have. We were tasked with coming up with a nice Christmas design with a little id-iom twist. Which is sometimes tougher than it sounds. After a few schmaltzy design dead ends we finally hit on the ‘fun and games’ quote which seemed just perfect for a Christmas party. Once we’d thrown some green fade stripes and festive baubles on the design we were good to go.

The classy foldable board is about 2.5m square and is to be used as a dancefloor backdrop for an upcoming Christmas event. They’ve got some UV lights which will strobe on the board once it’s in situ so we included some UV reactive paint on the lettering and some little snowflakes which are otherwise invisible. Unfortunately we don’t have a blacklight in order to test how well it worked but I’m quietly confident. To finish we also drilled a few holes in the baubles so we could put some fairy lights through for that extra pizzazz. We couldn’t leave the boards out all day in order to get a twinkly night shot so you’ll just have to trust me that they look the business. That is all.

Cheers

Chuffy

I was going through my computer recently looking for images to use as inspiration when I came across a folder of photo’s from a friend’s wedding. There were some great pictures contained therein so I decided to play around and sketch a few. This picture is based on a friend’s dad who has always been known by the slightly mysterious nickname ‘Chuffy’. I’ve never been able to ascertain why. Anyway, as I was finishing sketching I came to the somewhat shocking realisation that we hadn’t got my friend a present for her wedding or, more recently, her birthday. With a picture of her dad in hand I thought this could be corrected with a simple trip to the post office. Since I’ve posted it I have thought that perhaps it’s a bit weird to send her a picture of her dad? There’s not much I can do about it now anyway…

Bonus fact: I based the Chuffy text on the famous Chupa Chups logo. Which, I was surprised to learn, was designed by Salvador Dali. So there you have it.
