Not many people know this but I am also a Font Designer and let me assure you, I have had some success in this field. I turned a Uni project into a Font called Remnant, which can be found on Dafonts and 1001fonts. Since it was first published I have received emails about how it has been used from satisfied users, two of which are worthy of note.

It’s been a long time since I last posted an update but I am pleased to announce the redesign of my website! The site has been completely redesigned and upgraded to HTML5 and WordPress. I’ve also taken the liberty of making it responsive too which means the website is pretty much as up-to-date as possible. The work in the portfolio has also been updated to newer much better quality of work. Well when I say new I mean that it wasn’t on my site before.

Okay so once again I have neglected my blog ever so slightly again however there is good reason as I am updating my website. Yes, I have kept it hidden for ages now but soon I will be finished and it will be amazing. Since my last blog lots of things have been happening like Instagram being bought by Facebook. Very exciting news indeed when it happened as it was something that was trending and expected to keep growing. So for it to become one with the ‘book and what would happen to it became part of the buzz.

American-Apparel-Nude-Adverts

No stranger to controversey, nude American Apparel ads have been banned and it comes to no surprise for those familiar to AA advertising campaigns. It was reported earlier today that Advertising Standards Agency have put the lid once more on the latest campaign from the trendy fashion retailer. The adverts in question displayed the breasts and buttocks of the models and were described in complaints as “pornographic”. The ASA later stated that the ads were exploitative and the gratuitous nudity would causwe widespread offence. They were warned not to use similar images that were exploitative and sexualised women again.

So I’ve jumped on the Instragram band wagon for a while now and find it quite fun. I know it can be annoying to those outside of the circle who get waves of instagram related posts on their Twitter/Facebook feeds but it can be quite interesting to see what people post. I’ve not done a whole deal on it myself but finding the time to get your phone out and take snaps isn’t always the best and sometimes you just plain forget. Anyway I hope to add more fun and interesting pics in the future!

Spam Blocker Activated

Written by Chris

So for many months I have been plagued with spammers trying to spam the heck out of me by sending comments, luckily I set it to get approval from me before posting the comments so all efforts from them haven’t been successful. At long last I have activated a spam blocker which should stop the amount I get, recently they have gone up so much. I have absolutely no idea why!

Still Alive!!

Written by Chris

Hello folks,

It’s been a while, a long time even, however I have returned to blogging! Yay I kind of stopped because I just couldn’t find the time with my new job. I have been working as a Junior Designer since November and it’s been great. The people there are very nice, I work with a great team of like-minded people and it’s been good getting to know them. Besides the people I work closely with the rest of the company are just as great, a good mix of a variety of skills and experiences of people and I definitely look forward to getting to know them more. Besides my day to day tasks I recently found out it is possible to write blog posts for the company blog. So I got involved in it and here it is, my first blog post for theEword!

Mobile Web or Responsive Web Design?

So go on have a read because I definitely enjoyed writing it! I think I will end this post here for now but expect more from me from now on!

What am I upto now?

Written by Chris

I thought I’d give a bit of an update as to what I am doing right now. Currently on a placement and doing lots of lovely work and learning loads. One in particular when finished will be popped up on here and into my Portfolio too! I am also contemplating whether to put up bits of work I have lying around to boost up the content I have on here. It would certainly be nice to put up some new stuff which is more relevant to what I am doing now and the direction I want to take in my career. Also a website I am developing as a freelancer is taking a good direction forward as a bit of development issue I’ve been having really brought things down for me. It also made the project tedious but now I am excited about it again! Anyway I shall leave at this for now! Hopefully post more in this month than the last. Yes I know I said that last time but I promise you!
