Happy New Year

31 Dec

Looking over the last year, as everyone does this time of year! If you regularly watch videos on YouTube you may recognise a number of the faces!

Happy New Year!

Christmas Lights

24 Dec

This song is a beautiful song full of christmas spirit and nostalgia! I know it’s a year old but I absolutely love it as well as the video.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The web is what you make of it

21 Dec

I love the concept behind the Google Chrome advert. It is fantastic and shows how one person made the most out of the internet…

Which leads me onto my own personal experiment.

I would LOVE to work at Hootsuite, and as a result, I have created a blog dedicated to this cause! I am eager to see how social media will help me in my quest in landing a job at this creative company!

The blog is in its early stages, but have a little peek, share it if you like and give me some feedback on it! I’d love to hear what you guys think about it!

The blog can be found here: http://ilovehootsuite.wordpress.com/

Fingers crossed the Owls Hootsuite will catch a glimpse of this!

Exercise Your Will Power

15 Dec

I have stumbled upon Oscar Ramos‘ Behance profile whilst browsing the site. I absolutely love the personality given to the ‘healthy’ options! The close-ups are fantastic as well, I did spend a bit of time just gazing at the different images. Fantastic!

(I really should get myself a profile on there…)

Beer Mat Characters

5 Dec

Yes, this post has been a long time in coming, but I was going through my stickies on my mac and re discovered my list of these beauties!

@InkyGoodness posted these on their twitter. From what I can tell, they held a beer mat character competition and a number of Illustrators have designed them. My personal favourite is the happy jellyfish one! They’re all linked to the original Instagram posts with the individual illustrators accredited to.

Worst Client Feedback

23 Nov

You know what they say, everything happens for a reason and you know what, they are right! As a designer, I have had the absolute pleasure to do something that I love and to sit in on those delightful client meetings! It’s such a great feeling when you deliver an outcome you and your client love! But we all know this doesn’t always come straight away and I must admit I had to giggle when I saw this collection of posters brought to you by a collection of Ireland’s creatives. This work is in aid of Temple Street Children’s Hospital and these posters are all for sale with all the proceeds going to the Children’s Hospital. I have selected a few personal favourites, the rest can be found here. (Believe me, it’s worth it!)

 

STOP WAITING!

18 Nov

I just read this blog post by Dustin Curtis, and he’s right! There is absolutely no point in waiting for that opportunity to come to you. My high school physics teacher once warned me not to wish my life away when I said that I was looking forward to a particular day. Engraving this in my mind and this post has just rejuvenated my passion of keeping busy! Take a look
