Projects - The Hepatitis C Trust

About 18 months ago I started working with The Hepatitis C Trust on some design projects. I've been lucky enough to work on a variety of projects for them from silent auctions to christmas parties. I've also learnt a lot about Hepatitis C - for more information on the virus click on the link above.

Most recently I've designed some christmas invites and menus which are available to download from the website with useful information and recipes to hold your own Great British C Party! Check out the video of Boy George's Christmas party with food by celeb chef Gizzi Erskine.

#adventdoodle is here! All you have to do is doodle one thing a day in December up until Christmas Day... and you will have created your very own, very special and personalised advent calendar. This is for everyone, young, old, designers, complete beginners and people who really can't draw (I always love those kind of drawings best!). There's a template you can use below but I'd encourage you to use whatever is to hand - napkins, newspapers, cereal boxes - doodle wherever and with whatever - pencil, pen, chalk, crayon, lipstick! Include the number of the day if you want. Your doodles can be tiny or massive, just go for it and have fun. 

Most importantly we all want to see your doodles so make sure you Facebook, tweet, instagram and send me any images you are particularly proud of. I'll be posting some up through-out December and then putting the best (and worst!) together to create an ultimate doodled calendar.  #adventdoodle or send me images to

So who's in? please share and re-tweet any posts to spread the word #adventdoodle... Christmas is coming!! 

Click and download this template. Otherwise use whatever you can get your hands on! have fun!

Tigerprint competition

I've been working away from home for the last few days so it was lovely to come home to a nice tweet about making the Top 16 in the hand drawn typography competition! I've done a few Tigerprint Design competitions in the past but only entered 1 or 2 designs. The maximum is 5. I love hand drawn typography so I really went to town on this one and entered 5. I thought it would be fun to show you all my entries...
