I was asked by a woman who makes hand spun yarn to create her some branding. I thought she needed more than just a logo, she needed a new angle on yarn that was further from grannies knitting and closer to sexy fashion images. So as well as creating her a logo and website I styled and art directed a shoot for her and created these blackberry and beetroot necklaces to enrich the image and give it visual interest, texture and context. I had various concept ideas including plastic disco balls and sculls, etc but these 2 were my favourites.
When I moved to Berlin, I started a sketch book that I filled with things I’d found, photos, sketches and quotes. I filled the book in about 2 years and it’s now one of my most precious things I own as it reminds me of everything that happened there, better than anything else could. I smile every time I look through it. I planned to continue this exercise and start another book for London but of course it hasn’t happens as London swallows your time like no other place. Those years in Berlin are forever captured in the book and I though it would be just me that sees it. Then I had the opurtunity to use some of the pages for a series of cards, mugs and t-shirts I designed for Moonpig. Now the vintage photos I found in Treptow flor markt and the photo booth images from Bar 25 are being used as place holder images for photo upload cards and mugs for Moonpig (where you upload your own photos to the design). It’s nice to know they’re getting an airing.

I created this image by cutting out my boyfriend Chris and replacing him with the view of him through my teleidoscope. I played around with the colours a little.
