Oops, I Did It Again…
I like words. And consequently, I like letters. So it should come as no surprise that I like incorporating letters into the design of my personal space.
Period Property Photoshop Overhaul
I came across some pretty awesome photographs uploaded by a fellow Designer and when I clapped eyes on them I couldn’t resist doing a little bit of tweaking to exaggerate their vintage and extremely characterful properties.
Grand Designs Live 2014…And Me
When you receive an email from a fellow (past) student asking if you’d be interested in providing floor plans, elevations and 3D visuals for her interior room set that will be on display at Grand Designs Live 2014, you do not ignore this email.
Photoshop is King
There’s no denying it. Photoshop is probably my most favourite acquisition at the minute. I, like a lot of people used to fear the word ‘Photoshop’. I blame Microsoft – we’re so used to the MS interface that when we’re shown something different we’re instantly intimidated by it. And when I heard about the term ‘layers’? What?? You […]
Get Your Font Out!
I’m studying design, right? And that means I’m also interested in presentation techniques in general, from a graphic design point of view.

As I […]
For The Modernist Lovers
I’ve previously alluded to my dislike of the Modernist era where architecture and interior design is concerned. I think the main reason why I’m not a fan is because of its quite stark and bleak presence. But I AM a fan of modern design.
Photoshop – The Only Limitation is your Imagination
I’ve been using a multitude of effects via Photoshop and GIMP recently for my degree studies. I usually find that all of the tools to create whatever effect you want are all readily available in the maze of menus and sub-menus in both Photoshop and GIMP; it’s knowing which ones to use is the problem.

Fotoshop Fail – The Legacy Continues
Fotoshop Fail is about applying an extremely basic image editing tool and using organic and rustic techniques to transform a photograph without actually enhancing it. Get my drift?
