08/10/20 – Always time to read

I got up at 6.45 this morning to chat with my best friend that lives in the Philippines. It was 2pm for her, so worked out perfectly, as she starts work at 3pm. I cannot tell you how lovely it was to spend my early morning catching up with her. After that I had half an hour to kill so got back into bed to read.

I try hard to spend less time on social media and more time reading when I have these pockets of downtime. Something that’s really helped me is downloading the kindle app to my phone. It makes it a lot easier to make that switch from watching copious amounts of TikTok videos I’m possibly guilty of doing…

02/10/2013 – What’re you reading?

I’m currently looking at redesigning/improving my website www.stephjones.co.uk. Mainly, I need to get some sort of portfolio on there! Enter Web Design: Portfolios by Ed. Julius Wiedemann, a really good book that has countless examples of different online portfolios. Sometimes there’s nothing better than a bit of offline inspiration.
I love design books. I have plenty to my name, all neatly stacked in my bedroom with various bookmarks poking out. What would you recommend a designer has in their collection?

08/06/2012 – I GOT A JOB!

AMAZING NEWS TODAY! I got the job in London that I mentioned when going there for interviews! In July I’ll be moving to London to be a web/graphic designer at Digital Window! Today was an awesome day, I had to quickly have a meeting with the external examiner at uni, in which I was so giddy we chatted for 20 mins over my time.. oops. Then went for a celebratory lunch with my housemate David, that was only our starters! After I packed up some things ( and realised I have lots of books!) I headed h0me to Cardiff where this lovely cake was waiting for me that my mum made! The W is styled like the logo I did to gain the job!
