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…

03/02/2014 – Chicken and a good book

I have had a lovely day today for a variety of reasons. A few examples being a I had great day in work, followed by Earls Court Road being blocked off so there were no cars whilst cycling home, then I went to Nandos with the ever delightful Kat (former housemate) and finally snuggled up in bed with “Just my Type” one of my favourite graphic design books! This Monday was a swell Monday, let’s hope the rest of the week plays nicely too.

02/10/2013 – What’re you reading?

I’m currently looking at redesigning/improving my website 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?
