May 24, 2018

The awesome folks over at ∆ Studio—JQ ∆ have been sharing this incredible poster design for the FIFA World Cup 2018 that will take place in Russia. It is a follow up from their wildly popular set of retro posters they created for the UEFA Euro 2016. The style is super simple, very Swiss Style like and the presentation of them is beautiful. It’s almost like a cropped version. For this post I will share some of them, but they will be adding more posters to complete the teams in the World Cup. So far, Brazil is my favorite (not biased at all) :) Continue reading

Ten Artists to look out for at the Wimbledon Art Studios

Wimbledon Art Studios is a good place to go if your an art fan. Separated into three different blocks, each with multiple floors, it is studio after studio of art from so many different artists.

Sometimes it opens its doors to the general public, twice a year in fact. It means that people can go in, have a nosey and buy art directly from the artists. Open door also means exactly that, you just wander in and look around, chat and then move onto the next place which catches your eye.

We popped along with Katy Earley from the Modern Edit, she was accompanied by her two daughters so it made for a fun day out. The girls were choosing pieces to buy from each of the studios meaning that our imaginary bill was soon racking up.

But the scale of the fittings in each room has been altered, to give visitors an Alice In Wonderland experience. The intention is to draw to attention to the typically overlooked decor of white walls, plastic window frames and wood floors. Continue reading
