Supernew Supergraphics, brilliant new book by Adrian Shaughnessy, Tony Brook & Sarah Schrauwen, Unit Editions, fantastic work and really worth reading all the text. I am sure they will sell out very quickly so worth buying very soon.

I am very pleased to have some projects in this edition (see below, there are more too) and being asked to discuss Supergraphics at Unit Editions with Ian Cartlidge, Tony and Adrian last Monday and a great audience.

I am still amazed that I was able to speak in this fantastic building to a great audience. The theme of the conference this year was ‘SUSTAIN’ and my talk title was ‘Me to You, You to Me (ad infinitum)’. Thank you to everybody at Typo Berlin giving me the opportunity.  A couple of reviews from Paul Woods & Slanted Magazine and thanks to all the people who came to talk to me over the last few days.

It’s now early Saturday morning and I have an exciting day ahead of me. I have just completed applying the stencils to the letters and spraying is next. Then at 10am we are going to LCC, Elephant and Castle, and going to paste our posters onto the shipping containers. According to the radio the weather is going to be beautiful today and so it will be great to be working outside. So excited to see the results.

Lemmy is supervising our painting of the new exterior signs going up for the LCC Summer Shows 2011, I wonder how many marks out of 10 we will get?

We got to the Design Museum ‘Font night’ in good time, it was absolutely buzzing Bruno Maag was holding type workshops in the cafe area, everybody was eagerly cutting, pasting, drawing type and having a few drinks. As usual I was super nervous worried about boring people on their Friday social evening, also I was first on which filled me with fear. I had a 20min slot and had obviously prepared a font specific talk. 7.30 and I started it seemed to go quite fast and so hopefully it did for the audience. I did like preparing for this talk as it made me think about why and how I choose and use certain fonts. When I finished, I immediately thought of the things I didn’t say but hopefully I enthused people about how AMAZING, EXPRESSIVE and BEAUTIFUL letter forms are.

Next overtime is the Summer Party, Friday 1 July, 6-10pm, they are always great evenings packed with loads of things to do and see and really worth booking some tickets for. Luke and I are going to be doing something.

Nearly all my Nokia PURE stools have sold, I am so pleased as all the money is going to the The British Dyslexia Association.
If you fancy one they can be purchased from the Design Studio — £150 each.  I have to confess I bought two myself ‘LOVE’ for my mum and ‘GOLD’ for me I really wanted ‘LADY & ‘LUCK’ but they had gone!

I have been asked to contribute to the April Font Night on April Fool’s day at the Design Museum so I better be careful! Looks like it is going to be a fun night!
Instead of soaking up the sun I spent the weekend making my flyer, Tony Brook and Bruno Maag have also done one, plus more by other contributors on the way.

Early that day I was told all the tickets for my talk were sold out // Typographic Circle that night, which made me more and more nervous, I get so anxious before a talk. Thankfully Luke, Vilma & Holly came to support me, we left the studio at 5.30pm and took a cab to the JWT offices in Knightsbridge. The room was full of screens and masses of chairs I was petrified! I am always so worried people will fall asleep. I spent ages editing the talk but still ended up with 300 images — I was asked to speak between 60mins — 90mins — 90mins meant 18 secs per image equivalent to 15 Pecha Kucha’s by one person!!! Then the room filled with people, the lights went down and I just started talking, I spoke for 92mins. Some of the audience came up to me at the end and just said ‘inspiring’. I had a couple of drinks and went home relieved and happy. Thank you to John Bateson and the Typographic Circle for asking me to talk and for the cute badges made for the audience in return for their tickets and thank you to Alan Dye, NB: Studio for kindly organising the printing for my poster, much appreciated. A very special thank you to the audience for coming to see me on a cold Thursday evening, listening so intently for so long and being so enthusiastic!
