Today, Very Own Studio celebrates its 1st birthday. The first year has been better than I could have expected. Iâ€™ve balanced working directly for my own clients with assisting established design agencies when they are busy. It has been a learning experience in many ways, but the journey has been made a lot easier by all the great people Iâ€™ve met along the way. So, Iâ€™d like to say a big thank you to all the clients, collaborators and suppliers who have worked with me and helped me find my feet. Hereâ€™s to the next year. And the one after that…

Landschaft mit haus
A beautifully simple series of images by Suzy Yes found on Flickr. All of her pictures feature a solitary house in a landscape, depicted using just horizontal blocks of flat colour. The images all follow the same composition, but vary in the way colour is used to show different surroundings, seasons or times of the day/night. The images are reminiscent of looking out of the window of a train, with the landscape blurring together as the train speeds along. I really like the simplicity of these images and the way the colours have been used.

For some reason I have always liked rainbows, I love the ‘wrong rainbow’ prints by Patrick Hughes and the cover of Pink Floyd â€“ Dark Side of the Moon is an obvious design classic. So when I saw the third of these images by Ryan Taylor on Flickr I immediately had a look at his site. A description of how the balloons images were taken (there are two images tiled together) can be found here. The other images are of paint vibrating off a speaker and lumps of gelatine being hit by a pellet.

In the beginningâ€¦
This blog is a collection of thoughts and opinions on design and items from the wider visual environment such as art, photography and illustration. The blog will feature visual items that have inspired or informed the work I am doing and things I have found interesting but have been unable to link to my work. I will also be using this area of the website to release company news about projects I am working on or have completed and I will talk about the processes which lead to the final outcome of the design. Iâ€™ve got several ideas of themes Iâ€™d like to talk about, but youâ€™ll have to wait and see that they are.
