Junior Mixtape

t/ A few friends of mine run this neat little website called 'Junior'. It's a resource for young creatives (mainly for those wanting to break into advertising). On the site you'll find helpful hints, interviews, and they also run talks every month. Great stuff!
They asked me to design something for their mixtape section. This is what I came up with. I was worried it looked a bit emo, or like something you'd see in Dangerfield. But it's ok and served its purpose. I was pretty happy with it in the end.

James Blake - Limit to Your Love

James Blake - Limit To Your Love from James Blake on Vimeo.

t/ Finally, my first post on Fruity Legsia! What an honour to be sharing and creating things with two lovely ladies I admire so much! (Apologies if I stuff up the linking to stuff. This is all new to me!)

Well, this clip has been doing the blog rounds of late, but I still wanted to post about it. I’ve been watching it over and over and not getting sick of it. The floaty camera work, the odd things going on, the detail, the close-ups, the clever use of lighting – it creates a wonderful feeling of intimacy and loneliness at the same time.

The director is Martin de Thurah and you can see a lot of his other films on Vimeo. I highly recommend the short piece titled ‘Water City’.

You probably recognise the song as it is originally by Feist. I would go as far as to say this version is better though. James Blake is only 22 and creates such unique music. It is so different to what I have been listening to lately - a bit dub, a bit RnB, and a bit of something else I don’t know. I highly recommend his latest EP, (aptly named) ‘CMYK’.

bellingen global carnival /

m// Illustration and logo work created for the BELLINGEN GLOBAL CARNIVAL, held in bellingen in NSW, Australia every year in spring. Unfortunately the festival got flooded this year and had to close early.

work of late /

m// Ive recently updated the logo/identity of fashion designer ELISABETH BANG of SOI as well as designed a simple website with blog attached (programmed by STUDIO WARHOLM HAUGEN)as well as a folio catalogue. I have also created a new logo for her previous businesspartner KEVIN AZZOPARDI, based on the SOI logo. they are both now focusing on solo project rather than SUM OF ITSELF.

m// more, more! there is more on his WEBSITE too!

albert exergian /

m// sometimes i come across amazingly clever work and I feel a mix of excitement and jealousy. the work of VIENNA based designer ALBERT EXERGIAN does work like this. his poster interpretations of famous TV SHOWS are just fantastic. I would like to have some of these posters on my wall. they remind me a lot of the work by MULLER-BROCKMANN. love!

winter came early /

m// trying to settle home in NORWAY takes time... Ive finally got my computer now, so i have big plans for more posting in the near future....yesterday i woke up and the city was covered in a white blanket. winter came early! as Ive lived in AUSTRALIA for the last 7 years and mainly been home for summer, I havent seen snow in ages. I felt like a little kid at first, but then i was quickly reminded of the uncomfortable cold and wetness that follows. oh well, its better than rain and wind. Ive posted some photos here of the first snow...the shoes are old traditional norwegian shoes called NESNA LOBBER and the mittens are called SELBU VOTTER. and last but not least, we have a new posting companion, VELKOMMEN TESSA!

Also please make welcome our friend Tess to the blog, she is now our eyes and ears in MELBOURNE. Marianne is now our nose and mouth in OSLO and I remain a pigmentation in LONDON...

break /

m// Sorry for the long silence of late. I have made the very hard decision of moving home to my county of Norway indefinitely, and naturally this has brought a lot of preparations and emotions along. I hope to be back to blogging shortly...
