new typeface a week typeface up "maple" by Phil

...The typeface is a mash up of metrostyle & times...if I remember correctly! It's a bit clunky, a bit unfinished and a bit prickly...yes, just like the band....

Bird Tattoo - Dave Officer

Aberdeen Photographer Dave Officer loved Gabi's work so much - that he got a Tattoo of her song thrush on his forearm! It's ana amazing statement to make, getting a tattoo, and Gabi is particularly proud that Dave chose her design for his permanent statement... 

Thanks to Dave for sending photos "hot off the needle"...

Creative Identities classes complete!

Gabi and Phil have completed their classes with Craigielea school... we've had a fantastic time working with the pupils and teachers - and we would like to extend out thanks to them as well as the Peacock Visual Arts - Creative Identities team. It has been a wonderful opportunity for us to not only showcase our typeface a week project - but to proves that we can facilitate and run classes as professional artists.

We've been asked to come back to Craigielea in the next semester, and we've also been asked to work further with the Creative Identities project - so things are looking fantastic creatively for us. Particular thanks to Adam Proctor and Nicole Plumb for having the belief and trust in our work.
