Do what you love
I truly love what I do. I love pen to paper. I love print.
Hours by the table writing stories, drawing Bart Simpson over and over again, glued to Neil Buchanan on Art Attack (showing my age) but yes, I was that child, who has evolved into that adult; by my laptop all day... Even in travel. School book margins all the same width, neatly covered – no graffiti or creases – it was all about my work’s appearance! Amazing actually, how design and presentation has been my life’s passion, even as a child.
So where do I start?
I. LOVE. MAGAZINES. I love weddings. #Boom! Well, there’s a little more to it then that I guess.
So, I’ve been designing prints forever (still do) and have been obsessed with magazines even longer, collecting them throughout my teens and twenties -I mean, even my degree title is ‘Magazines’ lol! Literally. Really, it is.
I just absolutely loved the concept of having a collection of beautiful photos, articles and tid-bits on the things I had a passion for, in between the physical pages of something I could keep forever. I luurrrvved that I could take them with me and read them ANYWHERE. The creative shoots, the typography (my fave fave bit), the writer’s personality and inspirational content did everything to get me where I am today. Lol, obviously, I’m still quite obsessed.
