138 days. That’s a fair amount of time to have a break from WordPress. I think after posting over one hundred posts at Level 5 it was definitely needed!

This Tuesday kicked off the first ‘It’s F•cking Drawing’ session. With the studio numbers low today this meant there were only four of us in but it was a fun session where we did some drawing and brainstormed ideas for the future.
The Cass was open to students today and future designers that are looking to join a Visual Communications course here at London Met, so I spent the morning helping out Kim and getting some more experience in the Letterpress room.
We got our brief last week and today was the day we were coming in to start the printing process. After our last session Kim had printed up our designs with the type we had chosen in order to speed the process along and try and get everything finished before the deadline!
Last year I spent a few of my Wednesdays in the Letterpress room with Kim. Using type physically is pretty great, and enables you to think about the letterforms more so than if you were using digital type.
After the Summer break we are back to regularly scheduled Spotlight posts! The first artist I’m looking at is our very own Lucy Miners, so enjoy her work and her answers to a few questions I had for her regarding the year ahead.
