Degree Shows, Margaret Calvert, New Designers and Coming Soon!
Phew, it's been busy times here at Lucky Escape HQ. Not only for ourselves but for all the newly emerging graduates. Happily we've been to visit a number of the wonderful graduate events, inc. 'Headlines' - the University of Hertfordshire's fantastic degree show, revisiting the lovely people at the Cass for this year's final year show, and also a visit to New Designers over in Angel.
Our highlights included a beautiful nautical illustrations from Marta Alvim at the Cass:
Powerful and delicate illustrations bringing hunting issues to the forefront by Joe Barnes:
Stunning nature inspired illustrative patterns by our lovely friend Catherine Cooksley, who also was a finalist, and went on to win the Absolut New Designers Part 2 competition:
Catherine, Imogen and Scott inspired us to have a to have a go at the visitors version of the Absolut contest. Here is our entry:
Finally awe-inspiring design work from D&AD award winner Ryan Panchal:
We also went to a fantastic D&AD talk round the corner at Shoreditch Town Hall. We still can't believe we got to hear a talk from the amazing Margaret Calvert. Her talk was so delightful and engaging. We loved seeing all her working methods and works in progress.
Finally we just finished shooting a project that we have been squirrelling away at in the background. We were very fortunate to be given a hand by the extremely multi-talented Max Last and his excellent eye in lighting and composition. We can't wait to publish it! We have a few more things to do, but watch this space as it should be appearing shortly!
