Mike Dempsey

Mike Dempsey’s blog on graphics and living…

I remember seeing CDT’s work, even applied for a placement years ago… MD has written 6 parts on the history of CDT (Carroll, Dempsey & Thirkell. Point 11 of from his ‘pearls of wisdom’…Encourage everyone to soak up all of the other creative disciplines; graphic design is not the only thing on the block, there’s far more out there.

Part 1 – Part 2 – Part 3 – Part 4 – Part 5 – Part 6

Anamu aka Ana Maria

Finding new blogs to follow by accident somehow seems more special…anyhow my new blog to follow is by Anamu (aka Ana Maria) a ‘LA native living in London’…(stumbled across her posts for Poppytalk the other day…) what swung it for me was a pretty awesome mixtape (when I say awesome, I mean totally blown away) that she has put together for March. Check that out on 8track..!

So much to check out on her site so will be definitely spending a whole bunch of time perusing this over what is left of Easter…

In her words: ‘I’m a flea market fanatic with a knack for diy, music, pretty things and being a tourist wherever I am.’

Umbro HQ – Love

A terribly lazy post, seen via What Makes Us in my usual daily/weekly sweep of favourite blog links…

Really lovely work from Love, (based in Manchester) for Umbro HQ, signage + generally making the work place a space to  ‘inspire and motivate’. Images via Love.

A little extra is that Love has a blog as well
