Best of June
2nd Project 49
3rd Tabarka Studio
It may not have seemed it to you folks but, behind the scenes, June has been the busiest month yet. We’ve travelled well over 1000 miles up and down the country checking out your degree shows. Regrettably we couldn’t visit as many as initially thought because of our busy schedules but mainly due to the lack of planning on our part. In essence our meeting went something like:
“Alright mate, d’you want to do this today?”,
Never the less, we had a couple of bloody good road trips. We’ve learnt from our mistakes and I’m sure next year we’ll be a lot more efficient and professional.
More importantly, what did we see? Well, we saw some very, very, very, very good work! What I found interesting though is something I hadn’t previously thought of; we met some lovely people. Blogging is usually a one-way process, I post content and you look at it. So it was nice to explore this new dimension where I actually got to meet and talk to some of you.
When visiting all the shows it became clear to us that there is a lot more to be explored than just a simple review, so we have a few extra degree show related features coming too.
Some of you may be eagerly waiting for Type That We Like to launch, I’m sorry to tell you that you will be waiting a long time yet. I was so excited about the initial idea that I rushed into it, bumbling along trying to create a masterpiece without any proper direction. Realising this, I took a step back to rethink the whole project. Not to worry though, I have brought Lewis, the same friend who came on the degree show tour, into the fold and we are now on our way to creating something very special. I have a lot to say about TTWL but I’ll save it until next months round up!
