I’m a sucker for writing applied directly to walls, painted or transferred or whatever, I’ll almost always take a snap of it, perhaps I’ll put a collection together at some point.
Now there’s almost always the opportunity to see some writing on walls in art galleries. The exhibition at the Quad didn’t disappoint with plenty of transferred writing applied to the green walls, and it looked pretty great to my eye, most, most satisfying.
As well as the introductory text, all of the exhibit details were applied to the walls or surfaces, as seen on the green photo below. I’m sure they are simply rub down transfers, but it looks really tidy, good job!
And it’s in marked contrast to some of the lettering at the Nottingham Contemporary at the Huang exhibition, which looked atrocious I’m afraid, I was so disappointed I took a picture, not really expecting to find the contrast at Quad the following week.
You’ll see the ‘Please do not touch’ is applied directly but the description of the work is on some kind of sticker. Also, small irony, you could climb some steps and enter the plane in the exhibit, so you were encouraged to touch it. Fail.

We are really happy with the comprehensive branding solution that Kieran has put together. It was very important for LEL to have impact and be visible to the public as well as supporting the cyclists with essential kit. Kieran seamlessly brought together multiple elements to give the brand continuity and help position LEL as a noteworthy cycling event.

Well all the hype, all those times you’ve had to hear Prof Brian Cox and his unusual way of emphasising words. Rolling eclipse news with expert eclipse opinion from 6am.
And the cloud came.
All were disappointed.
Cloud is greater than Eclipse.
Outnumbered as I am 3:1 by ladies in the family, I do on occasion turn my design talents to some more girly design tasks. Our eldest, obsessed as she is with the endlessly successful Disney film Frozen, chose this as the theme for her recent Birthday party. Here are the invites I created.
So a little while back I was invited by the excellent people of free invoicing and accounting software, Debitoor to have a chat with them about design and branding.
