BP moving into Photoshopping?

July 21, 2010

So it turns out that BP are doctoring their PR images? So what – who doesn’t? Do people really think that the girls and guys on the covers of every magazine wake up looking like what appears in print? The only anti-ageing cream worth investing in is the Adobe brand (it comes in a blue a blue box).

Lets not get worked up over this – but I predict a new meme coming – or at least a new photoshop phriday post

Old Work, Newly Discovered

February 24, 2010

A wee animated gif for the Scotsman website. As part of the contra deal between the Fringe and the newspaper I had to design them adverts!? I’m quite fond of it considering I had twenty minutes to come up with something.

Thought of the day

January 28, 2010

If you walk onto an airplane and see your friend Jack sitting a few rows back are you allowed to shout “Hi Jack”? And then shout louder because there’s people putting their bags in the overhead lockers and he can’t hear you “HI JACK!!” And then start jumping up and down screaming.

Who is Vincent Sherlock

January 22, 2010

Going through my phone book yesterday I found an entry for Vincent Sherlock. I don’t know who he is…

Either Someone has put him or her in as some sort of lame joke to mess with me or I met some random in a deer stalker called Vincent.

I’ve got a number for them so maybe I should just get over the fear and call them.

Get Some Nuts

January 16, 2010

I knew the brother of the creative who put Snickers into the nut cracking fists of Mr T last year. Keen to get a job with him I knocked this up one morning before breakfast cigarettes and coffee. I was really really pleased with it because it reinforced BA’s unwillingness to get on planes and for the world to grow some nuts.

Social Media Logos for Print

January 16, 2010

To use up part of our advertising retro deal with The Scotsman last summer I created a half page ad that gave people the wherewithal to follow the EFF online.

I found that all social media icons were pithy little 20kb gifs – useless for printing so I set about making my own and in places improving them.

PDF file that you should be able to drop into Illustrator and rip apart for vectors after the jump

George IV Bridge Edinburgh

January 16, 2010


One quiet night at work years ago I set about learning how to make 3D models for use in Google Earth. My first real stab and I got a blue ribbon and now the building is a part of a virtual Edinburgh. There are a number of problems modeling Edinburgh in GE – namely that the topography in GE is very loose and the old town is stacked with two levels of streets – Think Judge Dread city who’s name I can’t remember or be arsed to google… comments welcome… Is it Mega City One? Anyway without having a way of scooping out terrain its going to be impossible to make the Galleries on the mound and accurately describe the relationship between North, South and George IV Bridges and the Cow Gate.

Brad Neely is actually an evil genious

January 15, 2010

I love this guy’s sense of humour. The songs are brilliantly dark and I’m waiting for him to pop up on channel 4 with a half hour thursday night slot, produced by Charlie Brooker and Chris Morris
