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.

On a 600gsm stock my business cards are fabulous, really sturdy and thick, they also have a great feel to the finish. They also feature some of my fave projects to make a pocket portfolio!
When the ReST vulnerability hit the news, I was happy that my hosted websites were already safe.
At some point in the discussion of a new branding project, the client will almost always ask what files they expect to receive. At first, I found this an odd query, although perfectly valid, my assumption was alway that I’d supply every file they’d need, why would I design a logo and do anything less?
