about me.I am by no means an expert in design, or even a designer. What I am is a design addict; a design geek. I am endlessly fascinated by design and soak it up like a sponge. I'll share what I find here - just in case you find it interesting too.

Here are the fruits of my labour.
The boy and I went along to Pick Me Up at Somerset House yesterday afternoon; the first contemporary graphic art fair in the UK, and I have to say, it exceeded our expectations. It smelt of paper and ink and making things, which is always a good start(!) and there was some great young talent there, but most exciting of all was Rob Ryan‘s studio, which had decamped there in its entirety…
