Journal

Neighbours and local business SK1 records have an in-store event this weekend with our other neighbour, reggae purveyor, sandwich master and general raconteur Dom from Blood & Fire records.

17 Little Underbank, Stockport. Go and listen to the bass wobble.

Is a question my three year old asked me the other day. It’s not such an odd question; it was only a few months ago that we were going round Tatton Park and I was trying to explain how weird I found it that the bulk of a tree just comes out of the air. You can understand how people get bigger – they eat real food which has mass and so you then do. It seems to much more strange – to me – that trees do the same thing from the air.

Anyway, Richard Feynman has done a much better job of explaining this, as you’d expect, and here’s his take.

It’s also another chance for me to plug the posters we did – the Feynman one can be found here.

Northern Comfort Shop

May 14, 2019

Today we launched the Northern Comfort Shop – an outlet for the various pieces of work we like to create in the studio when we’re not working on client work. Some of this work is just for fun, or to experiment with new techniques; some is work with quotes which mean something to us and to our process. All is work we’d like to own ourselves.

 

Do check it out here.

Podcasts.

May 13, 2019

I don’t really listen to podcasts. Not in a ‘LinkedIn I’m up at 5am on the grind #working #dontstop’ kind of way (because I’m not) I just find it really hard to concentrate on one whilst doing anything else. Same with music really, I have to have the blandest music in the background when I work otherwise I end up listening to that, rather than working.

Increasingly though there are tonnes of incredibly useful information available on Podcasts, so the way round this which you may find valuable is https://podcastnotes.org/. Depends on which podcasts you like to listen to – they summarise the most popular (in certain areas) podcasts online with the key takeaways and summaries. I prefer reading to listening anyway, and if you combine this with, say, Evernote and Tiago Forte BASB, you can really build up a database of knowledge about any areas you’re interested in.

Favourite ones for me are Rhonda Patrick, Naval Ravikant, Tim Ferriss and some of the Joe Rogan ones. Your mileage may vary, as they say.

Worth email subscribing, and if you do find it useful, support them on Patreon. It’s only a few dollars, and you should support sites you find useful.

Uncle A-Z Food Posters

April 10, 2019

As part of our ongoing work with Uncle, we often get asked to create posters and other collateral to be used internally in their buildings for their tenants.

At their Manchester city centre location, they wanted
to celebrate the diversity of their tenants with an International Food Celebration, so we created this for them. We had to check the spellings quite a few times.
