I came across Morag Myerscough when she gave a lecture at the Manchester Design Symposium earlier this year. I found her approach to type and design really playful.
She is a mixture of graphic designer, installation artist and sign painter. Her colour schemes are mental, don’t stare at her website for too long or you may get a headache.
Not bad that.
This is her most recent work called The Movement Cafe, a temporary cafe and performance space in Greenwich. It was built to coincide with the olympics.
One thing I always notice about her projects is how they have a positive effect on communities, schools or just your average joe bloggs walking down the street.
Heres a quick look back from Last Christmas, when I visited the MOTI (Museum of the Image) in Breda, near Amsterdam.
A truly incredible museum which I keep looking back to for inspiration for this years self-initiated projects.
This guy was pretty special..
The Manchester Design Symposium is set to return next month for its second outing, and although the organisers haven’t yet released the full line up, they’ve revealed that among the speakers will be Adrian Shaughnessy and Morag Myerscough.
Just ordered 3 half price student tickets, there is now only 6 left, so if you fancy this, be quick!
Every placement’s worst nightmare… the studio Christmas card.
A tree and its star prefaced Detail’s best wishes for Christmas 2011.
Getting stuff through the post is always nice.
We received this from Tea Cake, a studio from Manchester who do some nice stuff with type.
We got some letterpressed beer mats, and a double sided A3 poster. Lovely.
Even the label on the envelope had been considered, and they had gone to the trouble of printing
Ted & Paul’s names on the invitiation.
These little touches really make the difference, and make the invitation feel more personal.
Bought off ebay for £200…
