Introduction Welcome ladies and gentlefolk to my blog! It is here that I would like to share with you my theories of design being in fact, well, massive. It encompasses our lives and I believe that true design isn't pompous or holier-than-thou it's functional, usable, beautiful, quirky, important, influential and inspiring. It effects our day to day lives, how we interact, how we live, how we move and how we communicate. From simple, striking packaging of my favourite gum through to mind-blowing engineering and architecture that shapes our world, I hope to show you some of my favourite examples both old and new. On a day to day basis I work alongside my husband Ben (aka Ben the Illustrator) managing our art and homewares label "Wish You Were Here", designing and producing art prints, cushions and fabrics! Together Ben and I are also the creative force behind Speakerdog! I also take care of our varied art projects, including the hugely popular Speakerdog Paper Toys! I'm keen as mustard about design in every shape and form; interior, product, industrial you name it, I dig it. I love keeping it local. I hate vertical blinds. Join the design massive.
