“lovingly and effectively designed – stylish yet readable – exactly as it should be”
(Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet Int.)
Some of you know by now that the magazine I’ve been Art Directing has now gone bust in it’s current print format. Richard writes a lovely goodbye piece on the FP blog, mentioning not only the lovely design – ahem! – but of course all the fab content and contributors.
It has been a brilliant, challenging and rewarding experience working with V (Editor) and although it was a sad day to send the last issue to the printers, plans are afoot for new and exciting incarnations of the ‘Sheep and the website is having a much needed tidy up right now (to go live in Feb) so right now we’re feeling pretty positive.
Dodgy trimming by the printers on the first issue notwithstanding, think this is going to work… :)
You’ve probably noticed that I haven’t blogged much this summer… Have been working on two big projects; one of which came to fruition last night at the Roxy Bar & Screen. I’d designed the Electric Sheep Magazine website earlier this year, and V had such interest in the writing, it was launched as a proper print magazine yesterday at the inaugural Electric Sheep / Resonance FM film club!
I’ve never designed a whole magazine before, so it was quite daunting… There was the usual printer nightmare, but overall am really pleased with it. Everyone was great to work with (thanks S for invaluable print advice) all the writers wrote to count, and it was great to read whilst putting it together :)
Well done Lady Vengeance!
The Film Club runs every month (next one is Tuesday 2nd October)

It has been a busy few weeks this summer, but have just uploaded the final PDF of Electric Sheep Magazine (the print version) to go to the printers today. It’s out on September the 1st and there’s the first film club / mag launch at the Roxy bar and screen on the 5th… Reading through it I already want to see the BFI’s collection of squelchy sea films by Jean Painlevé and to check out the 70 (count ‘em!) dance routines included in the film Opera Jawa out in September. That’s an almost Actionette level of dancing, heh..
