Are you an aspiring artist?

June 26, 2008

Beck’s the beer brand is having a competition for artists and designers.

The competition is to do a piece of design/art on the theme of ‘Collectively Individual’ Which simply put is when a designer creates a piece of work with a musician. The musicians in this case are Does It Dffend You, Yeah? which is a pretty hawt London electro-pop quartet despise their emo name.

The winning piece will be showed at the Beck’s Fusions gig headlined by Visual art collective United Visual Artists (UVA) and Massive Attack on Sat 6 September in Manchester.

This could be a good one for you students out there looking for a claim to fame to land you that dream job somewhere exotic.

This is another campaign by Outside Line which are everywhere at the moment 🙂 Good job guys!


Yours, constantly hitting the spell check


James Houston

June 24, 2008

I went to the D&AD Newblood looking at digital designers. I was’nt impressed. It seems that in graphic design and illustration they have been learning a lot and there is some great talent out there. However it seems the digital courses are struggelig a bit in finding good tutors since there aren’t that many washed up digital designers. The result is that the young digital dersigners have more to learn when joining an agency.

But this entry in to the Radiohead competition by James Houston is a real gem. James Houston makes videos and I am certain his video of old computer harware preforming Radioheads ‘Nude’ will get him a pretty sweet job somwhere if that is what he wants.

Yours, in awe
