Business Cards 3

The third in the series of books on lovely business cards by Michael Dorrian and Liz Farrelly, which I stumbled across in Magma on Friday – I’d forgotten it was coming out this summer!

It’s a lovely resource for all kinds of inspiration and styles. And I’m very proud to have my cards be part of the collection (must be scraping the barrel and all that – before Coxy could say it). But yes, very lovely and happy they’ve been so well received :)

Been a while since I posted any of my own work, this is an identity I did the other month for the lovely Mancunia based photographer Jo Harter-Tong, of Mojo Images.

Christmas Flickr Meet 08
Posted in news,photography,random by Mark on the December 24th, 2008

My first Flickr meet – I’m hidden somewhere towards the back what with being tall. My friend Matt or monsier Coxy as he is more widely recognised was there, he’s mentioned them quite a bit over the years but I never managed to time it well enough to go before. Plus I have a slightly less embarrassing camera finally and have been wanting to do a bit more photography in my spare time.


So yup yup it was quite good fun despite the extreme cold, met lots of lovely random photo type people, and Eleanor D even managed to take the above passable photo of my good self when I wasn’t looking. Plus it was an excuse to visit the Christmas markets yet again :)

Some more if you clicky. (more…)

Let it glow
Posted in news,niceness,photography,random by Mark on the December 22nd, 2008

Ok ok you have permission to shoot me for that post title :D Anyway I’ve been slacking off with my blogging so apologies, as my friends know I have a magpie-esque love for things that glow, and have all manner of lights and things. I’ve photographed some of my favourites, along with the new wonderful toy I got for my birthday.

This is my new toy, a Philips LivingColor light. Looks pretty doesn’t it, it also and this is the bit which makes me giddy, changes colour according to a small remote control which lets me adjust the colour using a colour-wheel, the depth, intensity, brightness. Basically like letting me have a bit of Photoshop in the real world, terrible idea… ;)


My Christmas tree from last year which I bartered with Habitat staff for as it was the last one in stock. Pretty glass red thing.


Assorted glittery lights.

Oh and also – I’ve recently upgraded scrapbook to WordPress 2.7, the admin interface is now very sexy indeed – however my fancy font titles have stopped working, not sure if it was a recent Flash update or the WordPress upgrade – will fix it when I get a moment hopefully!

So yeah, wow I’m 27, not sure why 27 seems such a big deal, I guess it’s rolling that bit closer to another decade so I can’t keep pretending it’s mid 20s. Scary stuff. Will blog about a few random presents and things later in the week.

Still no word on my posters sorry have had a lot of other more pressing stuff to deal with, but I’ll get to them eventually :) In the mean time, I’ve updated my Flickr with some random pictures from the last few weeks.

Photo scraps – Vienna
Posted in news,photography by Mark on the September 26th, 2008


Well I’ve been rubbish again. I really really really do mean to keep posting but work and – more recently – an addiction to my 360 has been getting in the way. Anyway as promised I’ve been making the most of my shiny new camera when I went to Vienna again a few months ago, and have posted a few here.

I’ve been working with Rihards again recently on a new blog/site which will be full of geeky goodness, and I’ll post all about that when that launches :) (Think a month or two rather than weeks, we’re both very busy!)

This lovely shot was taken by Matt Cox, aka Coxy (He’s fairly insufferable at photography – his flickr be good), as we were wandering back from a gig – clouds of dust were billowing eerily across Oxford Road, and we found this building being ripped down at a very odd time.

Though speaking of photography I do now have a flickr account full of some pretty terrible photography :D

I have recently purchased myself a bit more of a proper camera – planning to get more into it as a hobby so hopefully I’ll upload something a wee bit prettier in the future. And a big thank you to the various people sending me some very lovely emails lately, not sure where my site got posted recently but seems to be going down a treat :)
