The Endless Possibility of Nails
In graphic design, my field of choice, you work within limits. Be that timescales, budgets, client briefs or self imposed boundaries. I like limits because I feel that is where creativity comes into its own. You can push against them, stretch them, come at ...

The Invisible TV
We have a gaping black whole in our lounge. Our television, when off is an unavoidable dark space that detracts from the over all lightness of the room, but with Samsung this need not be an issue any more. Earlier this year the South Korean electronics comp...

New Art Space Catches the Eye
Nicely done, this historic community hall has been updated to house student digs and a pretty cool iridescent theatre and art space. Thats the bit I am drawn to, the shimmering tiles don't look real, so otherworldly. It could have landed from space.  Archit...
