New work. Book reviews. Ideas. Likes and gripes. The following blog is something of a random visual and written notebook brought to you by totalcontent. We’ll be covering a wide range of topics, from projects and prospects, to words and writing, to typography and technology, graphics and popular culture… and much more besides. Hope it tickles your fancy and feel free to have your say.
It’s time for Jim to don the trusty wig and gown once more, as he has been invited to judge two of the UK’s leading design awards for 2009.
In November, he’ll be reprising his role as part of the Print Jury at the two-dayDesign Week Awardsjudging. There’s always a frightening amount of work to assess in a short space of time, but checking out the most inspiring graphic design of the year, and hanging out with the leading lights of the industry makes it a real pleasure.
Then in April, Jim will take his place onD&AD’s Writing for Design jury. It’s his second stint on this one, and he will be joined byAdrian Shaughnessey,John Simmons, Elmwood’sRichard Scholey, and several other old friends. This has quite a different vibe from DW, and while it’s tricky judging one type of writing against another, the day looks set to be a real eye-opener as usual.
