Here’s a little sting I’ve made, experimenting with new plug-ins we’ve got here in Multimedia. It was done with 3DS max and the plug-in Particle flow box 2 and put together in After Effects.

So the end has come, and after a month of selfless fluff-growing it’s time to say goodbye to our lovingly nurtured face-space. We’ve managed to raise over £250, supported by a fantastic moustachioed cupcake bonanza, and donations continue to rolling in for our Best ‘Tache Vote.

The Lowry exhibition opened at Nottingham’s Lakeside last week – great paintings and drawings, very atmospheric portraits and a reminder of Manchester and Salford landscapes that have largely disappeared. It’s also free!
We’re always happy to see Julian Bray dropping into our business as he continues to run drawing lessons with our designers on a regular basis… And now there’s a fantastic chance to view and purchase some of Julian’s own work…
Maggie’s Centres are places where people affected by cancer are welcome whenever they need support – from just being diagnosed, or undergoing treatment, to post-treatment, recurrence, end of life or in bereavement.
A £3million centre has recently been completed at the City Hospital Campus at Nottingham University. The architect, Piers Gough CBE, was a personal friend of Maggie Keswick Jencks, and is famous for his bold and imaginative architecture. Nottingham born Sir Paul Smith has designed the interior.
I attended the Typo London conference last week. The event which hosted a wide range of speakers from Neville Brody to Lawrence Weiner, had the theme of ‘Places’ but to be honest was much broader than that. It was brilliantly facilitated by Erik Spiekermann and Adrian Shaughnessy (among others) and was easily the best conference I’ve been to in some time. One of the best things about it was that most of the speakers stayed for the duration and watched the other presentation, which created a real feel of community.
It’s the first time this event has been held in England, having previously been in Berlin and judging by the feedback from everyone, it looks like it’s going to return to the capital next year. I will be putting together a presentation covering all the amazing talks which will be shared here but for the time being here’s additional reading about it from Creative Review and Design Assembly.
These are a selection of illustrations by Will Haywood who recently visited Linney Design to show us his portfolio. He has a very unique style and some great work. What are your thoughts?
Cheeming Boey is a cartoonist whose medium of choice is the Styrofoam cup. While seemingly innocuous, original Boey’s routinely sell for hundreds of dollars, sometimes even over $1,000. Trained in computer animation, Boey found himself in a coffee bar without any paper, so he doodled on a discarded polystyrene coffee cup. Boey’s drawings often take the form of some kind of narrative or theme, such as Japanese woodcut art, and have become so popular that he is a spokesperson used in promotional campaigns for Sharpie permanent markers.
