Banksy’s Dismaland has been the subject of much hype in the art world. It’s effectively an “anti-Disney” theme park in which themes of capitalism and ironic commentary on society run riot throughout a carefully curated selection of both gaudy and subtly clever artwork. This bleak theme park is perfectly situated in a derelict and abandoned […]
I was fortune to visit the incredible Horniman Museum in SouthEast London last summer, and it was a wonderful experience. This museum is easily one of the oddest, and most entertaining, museums in Britain — if not the world. The museum is the private collection of Frederick John Horniman, an affluent tea trader. His collection […]
Since it’s #MuseumWeek, I’ve been digging through my own archives of museum visits — and I realised I had somehow forgotten to post about the gem of a transport themed Aladdin’s cave that is the Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum. It’s one of the strangest, but most charming, museums imaginable — but it’s also terribly hard to […]
I’ve been working as an embedded journalist with IJAD dance company for the past few weeks while they rehearse and develop their performance for the Science Museum- which is tonight! As part of that, I’ve found the movements and subject matter very inspiring to my own personal work designing and drawing. Since I had done […]
Now as I’m sure most of you know, the London Transport Museum is literally my favourite place on earth, and it also houses my favourite gift shop on earth. Here’s a collection of some of the lovely fonts you can find there!

One of the best shows I’ve seen in London, hands down. The show is a collective of various artists using light as a medium for their work. Works include neons, dancing LED lights, playing with shadows, and exploring optical illusions. You can’t take any pictures in there (and rightly so, as you really don’t want […]
Here’s a selection of type faces found while wandering around Greenwich this morning- both from the streets, the Cutty Sark, and also the National Maritime museum!
The V&A’s Theatre section has a great selection of vintage theatre posters. Here’s some of the best vintage type faces I saw: They also have a rhino that represents fascism, cause, you know, why not?
Today I headed off to the lovely Museum of Childhood, in Bethnal Green. This is a V&A museum, and is housed in a gorgeousbuilding which dates back to 1872. The Museum houses toys from all over the world, as well as other childhood objects – cribs, strollers, and currently has a very interesting exhibition about […]
