logan and adam mix for dirk van dooren / aspesi

Here’s an unusual little thing. Created by myself and Mr Logan Fisher for Dirk Van Dooren inspired by cassettes Dirk had from years ago and his travels around the middle east. I think he got most of them off taxi drivers. We created ...

good santa

Ah, way back when early on in the millennium we produced this rather fun Christmas mailer. Consisting of a festive mix of treats, first of all there were two mix cds (assisted by the always reliable Mr Logan Fisher on the ones and twos) - Good Santa (proper Christmas party ...

stop it and tidy up

It’s a chore isn’t it, the old tidying up? You get by for a while simply putting things in carefully arranged piles, but eventually it is inevitable that you have to actually have a proper sort out, which usually involves things getting in much more of a mess before putting ...

fist of power!

Another entry from the halcyon days of the Royal College of Art. I don’t want to cast aspersions upon our willingness to take these things seriously, but this was a live brief for the Alfred Heineken Music Foundation to encourage people to take part in entering their musical scholarship scheme. ...

where’s me keys, where’s me phone?

Well, that song could have never been written back when I got this, my very first mobile phone. It would have just been “Where’s me keys?” as the Nokia ‘brick’ was nothing if not substantial, and therefore impossible to lose. But what a great phone it was - with its ...

royal college of art ‘time out’ postcards

It’s not easy to imagine now, what with our the Facebook and the Twitter and the Pinterest and all that, but in the days before the worldwide internet, letting people know about what was going on around town was a much more mechanical affair altogether. One of the most successful ...

letterpress poems about air hostesses

berlin late 80s screenprints

So it’s the end of the eighties, and the Berlin wall has just come down. So off we pop with our ideals, long hair and gung-ho spirit to live in what was until very recently East Berlin for a bit to go and see what’s what. An informative time of ...

good housekeeping

This book was something I made at the end of the eighties, when people were just starting to get into computers in a creative sense. And whilst this felt like 'the future', in its current form the future was terribly flawed. The biggest problem with the 1 megabyte monsters was ...

“Doctor, Doctor! My family think I’m mad!” “Why?” “I like gherkins.” “You like gherkins? There’s nothing wrong with that, I like gherkins too.” “Ooh, you must come round my house and see my collection. I’ve got hundreds!”...
