A beautiful book by Rose Thomas, an A-Z of pattern created with each letter of the alphabet set in Times New Roman. Look closely on the image featured to see which letter makes this classic style pattern.


Aesthetic Apparatus

Aesthetic Apparatus

A badass design studio from Minneapolis, the duo met in 1998 and set up the studio a few years later to merge their love for posters and music full time. A truly diverse and delectable portfolio of work, this sweet collage style screen print for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds really caught my eye and is now available to buy.

Word Collective

Word Collective

Hello guys, it’s been a while since my post because I have been busy printing at Levi’s on Regent Street…I will write a separate feature about this. However, today I am posting about Word Collective. (I know it’s not print-based, but words used to printed right? Or they still are in some cases? Maybe you can print the words off on your Epson inkjet 500000000.)


30 Alternative Book Covers

I could stare at the dark trippy creations from this Australian born Illustrator all day long. Layers and layers of flawless detail and colour. Kinda hypnotising.

I was lucky enough to witness the early creation of this beautiful print by Olivia Brotheridge earlier this year for Boat Magazine and now you can see it in the flesh amongst others at The Paper Jukebox Collectives Exhibition at the Flaxon Ptootch Gallery in Kentish Town until 7th August.

We’re quite the fan of Kraggy with his angular patterned posters and designs, working both digitally and in print this guy knows where its at. He also has a sweet little shop too.


James Dicks

Josie Falconer

Theres nothing like a good book on a rainy day and a book as good as this is just what I need to get me through this very wet July. Beautiful piece of design by Kingston graduate Josie that takes you on a walk through the life of cotton.


Holly Bagnall

Holly Bagnall

We were privileged to have the lovely Liverpool based designer Miss Bagnall in London for our event of workshops on Education at KKOutlet t’other week producing some sweet poster designs. Her portfolio keeps it slick with tasty book designs and intelligent type choices. She likes small animals but doesn’t like pho noodles because they look like tapeworms, however we can see past this error of judgement seeing as she’s ruddy lovely.


Mixed Special: Camberwell BA Illustration show

Mixed Special: Camberwell BA Illustration show

There was a lot of hype around this years Camberwell Illustration show and I worried it might struggle to live up to it, but I needn’t have been concerned as the exhibition was vibrant and eclectic, although a little on the crowded side. Feature


Rare: Kingston BA Illustration & Animation

Rare: Kingston BA Illustration & Animation

We visited the Rare show on a calm and quiet afternoon to fully embrace and admire the impressive array of talent on show in the spacious, well laid out exhibition from Kingston’s BA Illustration and Animation degree course.
Impressed on entry by the quality and quantity of publications on offer, this set the tone and standard for what was to follow. Feature


Ellie Andrews

Ellie Andrews

We’ve gone grad-mad with all the new emerging talent currently on show for our hungry little eyes at all the graduate exhibitions. This young lady is an Illustrator I’ve known for years, we all knew she’d be damn good but she’s gone top notch during her BA at Camberwell taking a keen interest in geometrics and refining a delicious almost candy-like colour palette. Her work is a true embodiment of herself, brightly coloured and undeniably fun.

Brighton University students have never failed to impress me with their insane ability and quality of work. This is a degree show that you CANNOT miss! Opening night is the 5th of July and it runs until 8th at Netil House, London E8 3RL. I can pretty much guarantee that you will be overwhelmed and inspired after seeing this show.

Swiss Poster Generator

Swiss Poster Generator

Swiss Poster Generator is a collaboration between brothers Ben and Clark DuVall. It merges their respective mediums of graphic design and software engineering, exploring the nexus of art and technology, modernism and post-modernism in the era of desktop publishing. The Swiss poster is the height of precision in graphic design. In many ways, the computer has eliminated the need for human precision by reducing information down to bytes and pixels. Swiss Poster Generator is meant as a tool for the design layman, an alternative to desktop publishing programs, but never to the designers trained eye.


Video :: KKOutlet Workshop

Here is a cool little video of the workshops that took place at KK Outlet last week filmed by the super good May-Ninth studio.


Inc. Zine

Inc. Zine

There’s not many publications out there that do what Inc. Zine do, merging illustration and poetry in a fresh and exciting way. Issue 5 is out now, I also recommend listening to their pod casts, I nearly wet myself laughing.
