BOY CRUSH..

ROO PANES


I have just stumbled upon the musician Roo Panes who currently features in Burberry's A/W 2012 campaign.

I am at a loss as to why I have not picked up on him sooner... Within half an hour of seeing a picture of him I seem to have developed a rather unhealthy obsession...

Not only is this hairy man rather delightful looking, but his music is also pretty beautiful too!
Sounds like Bon Iver & Alt-J's lovechild!

I can't stop listening to Indigo Home.

Building Images

"a homage to the boredom one may feel working in an office surrounded by colleagues all day. Unsure of whether she’d be able to sit still for that amount of time, these images express what she may do if forced to work in an office environment."

BLOG RE-VAMP & JAMES JEAN


The other day I gave my blog a bit of a re-vamp. I was getting a bit bored of my old decor & didn't feel it really worked - it was time for a change!!

For a long time now i've been a bit obsessed with James Jean's beautiful illustrations. The image below is one of his most recent pieces and I've gone a bit mad for it!! His work is just sick!


 The image below was a taken on your classic old school disposable camera on an outing to The East End Thrift Store. Unfortunately, as per usual, my face looked pretty grim & ruined a nice photo. So I began playing around with ways to cover it up and this ended up being the result - success!

LARISSA vs VOLT


UNI UPDATE:

My first uni brief is finally done and dusted. We got our results back the other day and was over the moon to come out with an A for both parts - great confidence booster!!

We've now been divided into three groups, each studying a different specialism: Graphics & Imaging. Photography & Styling and Marketing & PR.

I'm starting off with Marketing & PR this term which initially seemed the slightly less exciting subject,  however, I'm really starting to enjoy it!

We've been divided into small groups and have two live briefs:

One is from handbag designer Larissa Hadjio, who would like us to help her communicate her brand and identity to a wider audience via a city-based project which has a digital concept.


The other brief we have recieved is from a high end fashion publication called Volt, who would like us to help them promote the arrival of their new online student platform.


So far we've mainly been doing independent research into the two clients but have also started to work as a group to discuss and brainstorm potential ideas. I'm so glad this is a group project as it's finally given us the chance to socialise with others on our course and I'm loving working with other creative minds.

In the next week we're going to be meeting and interviewing both clients as well as visiting Larissa's studio so that we can learn more about the brand and see what they think of our initial ideas.

So far i've been really impressed by the amount of interaction we've had with individuals that work within the industry - we have guest speakers/lecturers almost every week who have all kinds of creative backgrounds and experience.

We don't have a huge amount of time for this project, but I'm really excited and positive about the ideas so far and looking forward to putting them into practice!

INHALER


So. As of recent, I have been a complete ball bag when it comes to blogging.
I thought moving away to uni to study fashion would result in me blogging constantly, alas this is not the case!

But let's be positive and try to get back into it!

We'll start small.

I can't get enough of Foals' new track Inhaler. They seem to have totally changed their whole sound & vibe again - but it works! Looking forward to their new album being released in February - definitely gonna try and see them next year if I can.


Having said that, there's a lot of people I'd like to see perform at the moment. 
Really getting back into my music - I feel 16 again!

HEAVEN KNOWS I'M MISERABLE NOW


Procrastinating like a bitch with my first deadline around the corner.
Right now, blogging is much more appealing.
Here's some music!
