…Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me…
Last week I went to Pick Me Up Graphic Art Fair 2012, which is currently on in Somerset House. It was a very nice day out with a good reason to meet up with my two college friends: Alma and Lizzy. We have chosen Friday, as Lizzy and I wanted to attend Anthony Burrill‘s workshop, which was on that particular day.
I wanted to share with you a picture I have received from Kasia Jezowska. Kasia’s curated Design Faction exhibition (my Urban Dolls project is part of this touring exhibition) had a huge success in Lodz Design Festival 2011, and Kasia was asked to show her exhibition once again, but this time in another town of Poland - Cieszyn. The exhibition was on 3-12 February 2012 in Zamek Cieszyn. Thank you Kasia, due to this event I had a record high my website views.
Last weekend Mindaugas and I went to Yayoi Kusama exhibition which is currently on in Tate Modern. Not mentioning 30min queuing up for a ticket (5 cashiers were open), we have managed to get it. Inside of the exhibition as we have expected was – crazy. I never seen so many ‘art thirsty’ people running around, as all 14 rooms were full. I would like to share with you my favourite pieces that I photographed using my best undercover photography skills.
To celebrate Terence Conran’s 80th birthday, Design Museum invites people to the The Way We Live Now exhibition, that explores Terenc’s unique impact on contemporary life in Britain. Here are few snapshots from the opening evening. The exhibition runs from 16th November – 04 March 2012.
I think to most of us Nokia associates with nostalgia. First phone, first sms… Today Design Museum is opening its door and invites its visitor to a journey back and to a coming future. By the way , the first mass-market phone Nokia 1011 is celebrating its 20th anniversary! Happy birthday!

Last week one of the biggest design talks – Typo London 2011 Places was storming the capital of England. With the most impressive speakers list – it was a total temptation that was difficult to resist. Unfortunately, due to last minute change of plans, I’ve managed to see only 1 speaker – Morag Myerscough, who was as always – brilliant!
Last evening, small Text gallery based in WC1 was completely packed with people who came to the opening of Imaginary Menageries exhibition, where 19 designers from all around the world were exhibiting their tongue-twisting interpretations. It was very sweet to to watch and listen to people trying to read the tongue twisters in perfection, not just in English, but in Russian, Spanish and other languages as well.
How exciting is that! Our 100 A0 billboard posters designed for LCC (London College of Communication) summer shows 2011 have arrived! Aren’t they fab? The colours look amazing. One is brighter than another… Looking forward to see them going up. Not long to wait.

Wim Crouwel is called one of the leading graphic designers of the twentieth century, and I think, this name is given to him for a reason.
Last night we (the studio) went to the launch of Nokia Pure typeface at Tramshed, Rivington Street, where Morag Myerscough alongside other great designers, such as Alex Trouchet, Bond, Build, Cartlidge Levene, DesignStudio, HelloVon, Nokia Design, Non-Format, North, Practise, Value & Service & Z.A.K were exhibiting her installation of 20 PURE stools.
One of the best girls time ever!!!! Sara, we should go and do things there again! And in the same way we did in June 2010. _More
