I had the pleasure of attending this year's Pictoplasma conference in Berlin with Joseph Lattimer to present an upcoming project at their character forum. The conference focuses on character design with lots of crossover into film, advertising, and design. The line-up of speakers was very inspirational and entertaining, and the unique Berlin venues made for a memorable few days. Great to meet such an international collection of creatives and hear about other parts of the industry. I had really been looking forward to hearing Lucas Zanotto so getting a sneak preview of his new app was a bonus, and some other favourites were Yomsnil, Brosmind and Wong Ping. And, I may eventually get this song out of my head...



I'm very excited to announce the birth of Fancy Lamp, my new creative agency. Things are off to a brilliant start thanks to a little help from The Barbican and The Trampery who have invited us to take part in their new frontier - Fish Island Labs. We'll be taking up residency in their Hackney Wick victorian warehouse turned creative/tech bubble for the next 10 months as we work on our first big project. With a program full of workshops on entrepreneurship, innovation, social media, and creative startups, we look forward to sharing our experience with you!
