Fun in the studio

At the moment I find myself really drawn to all things pastel and soft. I think the spring palette has been influencing my work lately as all I want to design are beautifully delicate cotton candy coloured images.

It may also have something to do with the beautiful new book I rewarded myself for FINALLY finishing my dissertation, (yay!) I have been building up my collection of the PALETTE books for the past year and only last week acquired the next one for my collection. 

My little brain has been buzzing with lots of ideas for how to incorporate my new colour obsession into projects. These little images are just for fun, I love colours that look unrealistic or have a sense of the unusual about them.

More little projects

The past day and a half I have been working on re-designing my website keeping the same theme but just adding to the colour palette and layout to make it feel more like who I am now in terms of design and personality.

The above images are just little shots for composition and to show off all the cool things I own that are orange (seriously that chalk pen has changed my life). I'm hoping to get the ok with the flat layout and them get to grips with actually coding this thing! I anticipate lots of late nights and many cups of hot chocolate in m cosy little study corner in my room. 

I LOVE hand rendered type and recently i've been obsessed with scribbling out little sayings and phrases and trying my hardest to fit them into projects, sometimes thats nice and everything works out that way but other times its also nice to just create them for the sake of pleasing myself. 

Tomorrow I go back over the border on an overnight trip to Edinburgh with my Uni and i'm so excited! I love Edinburgh and can't wait to visit the Fruit-Market Gallery and walk along the cobbled streets and head to the City Cafe for breakfast (any other suggestions for food? i'm all ears) I'm taking my little polaroid camera and sketchbook and i'll possibly upload some snaps on here.
