I didn’t realise it was already Hothouse Talk week until Emily came into the studio this morning! Today we were host to Russell Weekes, illustrator, designer and professional experimenter.
He explained to us that he has never just stuck with one medium or specialised field of design as he allows his ideas to form the way in which projects are carried out. This has allowed him to work on music videos, photo stories, print, children’s books and a whole host of other things!
I loved listening to Weekes explain the importance of creating personal work alongside professional work as it allows you to create work you want to do, experiment and collaborate to your heart’s content! It’s really got me thinking that I need to try and find time to do my own projects (maybe I can do it in the bath or in my sleep..).
Take a look a more of Russell’s designs on his website.
