Phil to make the POOT site

Phil has been asked to help POOT (Portrait of our time) - a community based website that will hopefully collate & curate the goings on of the rather disparate community of Finzean, Strachan, Balogie & Birse and Feughside...It will be a great opportunity to implement the lessons of developing RSS / CSS driven websites... It's a great opportunity to help a community that uses computers to communicate - to communicate effectively and "cleverly" meaning that individuals can actually contribute to a website without having to worry about programming HTML or uploading new pages via FTP!...basically, give a lot of pre-set blogs to some authors and mash up the feeds from RSS into "the portal" - presto - a live, evolving, current and relevant website! - watch this space.

Typeface Classes with Craigielea School

We've been working with Peacock visual arts for the "Creative Identities" project, where we've been working with some pupils from Craigielea school, Aberdeen creating handmade typefaces from a range of materials.

We are working for four sessions utilising Found objects, Ink & Paint and Animation with several finished outcomes planned for the creation of the type.

We'll be posting some of the outcomes here, and also featuring a suit of typefaces in the typefaceaweek blog.

We'd like to thank Peacock Visual Arts for this opportunity, and look forward to running more workshops with them!
