The curse has been lifted!!! All is forgiven @ITVSport. 🏴 🦁🦁🦁
I have not enjoyed this game. So far.
England deserve to win this. England can win this. But will England win this?
Round of applause to @ThreeUK for selling HomeFi routers that are not locked to their network. Made it much it easier to sell mine now that it’s no longer needed. 👏🏻
Question for @aarron after watching his presentation at UX London: how do we prevent storytelling from becoming propaganda? When does building an internal culture become indoctrination? Plenty of examples to suggest this is often the result.
Today, I dip my toes into the world of journalism, prompted by a little side-project I have in mind. Can’t wait to see where this journey takes me.
With a client project briefly on hiatus, I’ve been using my free time to think about a proper redesign of my website. Looking at the 404 page – priorities! – I thought it was probably time to bring back this guy. You’ve been missed, little fella.
The Beauty of Transport is such a compelling read. @danielhwright’s latest article goes into fantastic detail about the sadly short-lived identity for Rail express systems, a programme I distinctly remember poring over as a 12-year-old train livery geek. So, so good.
The Birmingham Design Festival is shaping up to be a great event. The Renew/Rebuild discussion is of particular interest; especially relevant when many of Birmingham’s brutalist buildings have been demolished in recent years. Such a shame I’ll be on holiday when it’s on.
Watched Isle of Dogs. A fun yet timely story. An inventive example of stop-motion animation. A beautiful piece of graphic design. A work of art. A visual feast – with dogs!
Having grown up just 50 miles away, somewhat embarrassed to admit that Leicester has been a bit of a revelation to me. This beautiful, historic and vibrant city has much to offer… and only an hour away from London on the train (like that should matter).
Finally – finally – watched The Grand Budapest Hotel. Layered, light-hearted and lavish; I enjoyed every choreographed second of it.
Headed back to Glasgow, via a highland winter wonderland. Stopping at Dalmally, the train is greeted by Angus, the station dog.
For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.
Robert Louis Stevenson captures my sentiments perfectly, as yet again, I find myself sat aboard the Caledonian Sleeper, and headed for Scotland.
A Guide to Modernism in Metro-Land – the essential guidebook to discovering the modernist treasures of London’s suburbs – is currently seeking crowdfunding on Unbound. Backed!
HISBE’s refill bar is such a great idea! Using this to replenish washing detergent and other cleaning fluids should go some way to helping me reduce my plastics consumption in 2018.
