afternoon tee (another one, I'm really sorry)

Second round. I thought that this would be quite a nice, simple and jokey idea. I was also toying with the idea of having it say awesome instead of lousy but only feedback will tell!

it's all in tee detail (bad pun, sorry)

Here is a quick mock-up for a tee/hoody design for Cardiff School of Art and Design, the place I like to call home. Suggestions and criticisms are more than welcome...but be gentle.

an animated beat poem? makes sense if you are Tim Minchin

I came across this earlier and thought it was brilliant! Having already heard the beat poem performed by Minchin, I had an idea as to what the animation would be like. However, I was massively impressed by the attention to detail and overall style. The style, slightly, reminds me of the opening sequence to the Channel 4 show, Misfits. The poem is funny and clever, the animation is exquisite and very well executed. And that is enough from me...now go forth and view my young friends!

Uh, hi. I've been meaning to call.

This just keeps happening and I apologise from the bottom of my little designer heart. I haven't been around much recently, but that isn't because I don't love you...I, I've just been busy. Promises were made at the very beginning of this relationship and I have completely failed in living up to my end of the deal. I guarantee that, if you give me one more chance, I can be better, I can do more, I can be here for you!

How about if I give you reasons for my absence? Ok? Right here goes, since our last encounter I was afflicted by a foul demon that I simply could not get rid of, or even slay unfortunately. It went by the cursed name of Dissertation. Gaah! The name still makes me shiver. Anyway, it was a long, hard fought battle that i thought would never end. However, I vanquished the vile beast (and bound its awful carcass in purple hardback!). So that takes me to mid January. And it all started with a glass of Glayva. It was a competition module so I had to try hard (I'll show you pictures, when you are less mad at me). Hence, two more weeks away from you. Then came a mistress known as the D&AD. Look, I wasn't cheating on you, it was for work. A further two weeks fly by. And now for the big one, the five weeks I spent wrestling with an odious and horrific piece of typographic legacy. Papyrus!! I see it everywhere I go now. I get Vietnam style flashbacks now and again...You don't know man, you weren't there!

Well, there you are, that is where I have been. I apologise again. I also promise to provide documentation of each of these instances to prove my innocence. So...am I forgiven? Yes!? Yes! I won't let you down! Thank you....Speak soon.
