SNASK is a multi disciplined studio based in the depths of Sweden, their individualistic yet distinctive approach to a variety of different challenging briefs is something i admire, alot alot. They have a great ability to create one off identities something you will note in their portfolio, and their advertising campaigns are second to none, well maybe Saatchi? Check their blog here.

Rose Blake

Rose Blake is a London based illustrator who graduated from Kingston University, she was lucky (or probably just because she is so damn good) enough to win the D+AD award for Best New Blood. Rose is also part of the collective 'This is It', check it out. My favourite thing Ms Blake has done is definitely her T-shirts for the Talking Heads, amazin'. (buy it here)

Jenny Bowers

Commissions include work with Channel 4, AOL, BBC and Creative Review. Her work is very cut out and paste yet it has a quality that brings in pattern and superb colour palettes. Her work makes me very happy, i think it would be impossible for Jenny Bowers to do something sad but why would she....... Check out Jenny's agency Peepshow here lots of nice stuff going on.

Emma Rendel

This girl is from Sweden, sorry no pics of her lovely face but please check out her lovely work. Emma is interested in violence, embarrassment, loneliness, melancholy, human shortcomings, depressions, veganism and jaffa cakes. Wow they sure make em nice in Sweden ey.........

James Laurie

Simple yet very rewarding responses here from recent graduate James Laurie, his ability to answer a question in the simplest form is what makes him stand out from the crowd.

Stefan Marx

Brilliant mark maker and entertains with it, Stefan looks to bring an experimental design style yet it remains familiar. Not to sure if that sums him up so just check him out for yourself. I love it......... Also check out his books for sale at this wicked on line zine shop ( Nieves Store ), so many great things there.

Antti Uotila

Antti Uotila is a freelance illustrator and graphic designer based in Helsinki, he studied graphic design in the University of Art and Design, Helsinki and Tama Art University, Tokyo (what a mix). His use of pattern work and photography is something i am loving at the moment and he nails it. Mr Uotilla works for Finish agency PEKKA which showcases the best of Finland's illustrators and graphic designers.

Matthew Hodson aka Matt The Horse

I met Mr Matthew Hodson aka Matt The Horse 3 years ago whilst on my Foundation in Leeds (he was my tutor), he was a fantastic person to have around whilst experimenting with illustration and graphics. Recently he has done work with illustrator Jon Boam and Nobrow Press which has brought him to the attention of many people. He has also started a great little t-shirt company aptly named H-O-R-S-E which sells limited edition hand printed tee's for 20 nicker, bloody bargain. I think we will be seeing much more from Matt...............

Enter The Void

This film is visually ridiculous, when i saw it i felt like my eyes were actually bleeding (in a good way). Directed by Gaspard Noe who directed controversial film Irreversible, Noe does not dissapoint here hitting the screen with a big visual treat. Its showing at cinema's nationwide not your showcase's more your smaller independent cinemas, genuine must see although not for the faint hearted. Enter the Void.

Hatch Show Print

These guys have been bouncing around the deep south of america since 1879, and all this time they have been making banging posters that just make you want to touch them up. Tactile i think is the word i'm searching for? The process of print has not changed since day one as explained here by some lovely gent. As he says Hatch just kick with a larger boot...... Check it


This lovely little collective, aptly named Plats (which is Swedish for space apparently) are based in London have done shows as far stretched as Germany. They have a fantastic attitude to muti-disciplinary design. Plats look to offer film, illustration, photography and instillations which you can check out here. Here is a great little video crafted by Laurie Innes called International Politics, it was produced for YCN for Christian Aid..... lovely.

New use for this lovely space..........
