Another month, another Long Lunch talk for our London readers. The next talk at Westbourne studios is taking place next Tuesday (2nd February 2010) with speaker Tom Muller of Hello Muller and Kleber fame taking centre stage. To promote the event this shocking orange fluro ink 811 post has been printed which is apparently so bright you can see it from space. If you fancy getting your hands on a copy as well as seeing Tom speak about design, Sci-Fi, comics, logos and much more do the right thing and buy a ticket for next weeks talk.
Tickets are available through the Long Lunch site where there is more information about the talk. Tickets cost £8/£6 NUS and doors are 7pm with the talk starting at 7:30pm. Hope to see some of our readers there next week.
For all those in the know it was Australia day yesterday (it tends to help having an Auzzie sister in law). In celebration of the day I made the classic Mars Crispy Crunch courtesy of my Dads many Australian Womens Weekly cook books. They nothing short or moreish. If you fancy giving them a go you can find the Mars crispy crunch receipe here.
On another note, a big batch of soft toy stuffing arrived for my yetis. However when the delivery person arrived with this huge box (over 10kg) I’m starting to think I’ll have enough stuffing to keep me going for a long while.
A couple of days old but still news worthy enough, the Felton Annual report is becoming as a regular mark of another year passing into a fresh January.
Infographic trend setting geek, Nicholas Felton has produced what looks to be another sterling effort of beautifully representing data graphically. This year he’s shifted from selfish data mining to focus on the people he has had meaningful contact with over the last year. The final report is all designed and currently being letterpress in NY and is available on pre-order now for release in March.
Rob Ryan’s latest book was sent into FFF the other day. Coinciding with his current exhibition at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, it looks like a pretty nice book and flicking through it some good interviews offering insight into his working practice and the commercial successful Ryantown/Empire.
Rob Ryan for world domination? Wouldn’t surprise us. Hopefully a more in depth review with more shots of the book on FFF soon.
