    Graphic Design Festival Scotland 2016

    I am very late in posting this. Every September/ October time Graphic Design Festival Scotland holds a poster design competition. You don’t have to create a poster on a specific thing, you just create a poster. The best posters are then shown in an exhibition at The Lighthouse in Glasgow. Here are the photos from the second year I went (from last September). Like I said I should have posted about this a long time ago. THE POSTER EXHIBITION I feel weird saying this but this exhibition wasn’t actually that good. The posters don’t have a specific theme which means it can be very overwhelming. Some were interesting to look…

    A Day Trip To London To See Lazarus

    Way back at the start of December my Dad and I took a quick trip to London to see Lazarus. The new musical written by David Bowie before he died. Here is what happened. We started off the day by getting the first train from Edinburgh to London. I wouldn’t really recommend this but it worked out that getting the train there and home on the same day was cheaper than getting a hotel. With most musicals this would have been totally impossible but Lazarus is in Kings Cross theatre (just next to the station) and it’s much shorter than typical musical. BRITISH LIBRARY We got to London for around…

    A Winter’s Afternoon In Glasgow

    I had a really nice afternoon in Glasgow the other day. I went to the cinema with a friend before trying out a new Asian place for lunch. Then checked out the Christmas Market at George Square. Here is what I got up to. I was a 90s kid and as such grew up during the time where (in my opinion) the best Disney movies were released. Seriously from 1990 to 2000 Disney Animation made 12 movies including Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Mulan, Tarzan and The Emperors New Groove. The problem with that being when I think of Disney…

    Visiting The House of MinaLima In London

    I may not have mentioned this before but I am a tad obsessed with the graphic design work from the Harry Potter movies. An exhibition of the graphic design work from the Potter movies recently opened in London and it is possibly my new favourite place. It’s called the House of MinaLima. Named after Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima who were the graphic designers that worked on the Harry Potter movies. THE HOUSE OF MINALIMA The House of MinaLima is free to get into and right behind the Palace Theatre. So if you’re down in London seeing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child you have no reason not to visit. The exhibition…

    Visiting Cosmonauts At The London Science Museum

    This is something I meant to post weeks and weeks ago so I apologise for talking about Christmas when it’s the last thing anyone want’s to think about right now.  I apologise for writing about this post so close to the Cosmonaut exhibition closing. You still have 6 weeks if you want to see it (and you should). I know later on I’m going to complain quite a lot about it. If you have any interest in the space race Cosmonauts is something you have to see. COSMONAUTS AT THE LONDON SCIENCE MUSEUM My dad is currently working down in England so at the start of December I took the train down…
