COP workshop//Speed Designer Dating

For the context of practise workshop we did an activity which was a play on Speed Dating.
Basically we had to come to workshop with 3 designers; male, female and company/studio. In the workshop we had 4 minutes to discuss with our partner the designer. We had to talk about them show them examples and say everything we can about the designer. We had to do this this 3 times for each designer. As we were going through we had a sheet to fill out. This consisted of designers name, referred by, if i like them and notes. After the workshop we would go away and research into the designers that we were told about that we liked.

We were doing a project in college on screenprinting and one of my friends mentioned him, I took a look at his work and was wowed. I love the whole concepts of his designs and how he works with colour. He also experiments with other materials which i like. Recently he has done 3D wood work which i love too.

Linzie Hunter
I didn't really know of any female designers so i researched into some and Linzie was my favourite because i like the style of her work. Illustration and type in her main work.

Female, Scottish.

Specialises in illustration and type, known for both of these.

Originally from Scotland and studied at Glasgow University.
Was a theatre manager before hand.
Studied illustration at Chelsea College of Art and Design

Studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design doing illustration, then went onto Glasgow University.

Enjoys doing illustration but also loves to work away from the computer on print and print making and book binding.

I like the style in which this design company works in. Its really fresh and clean and using vibrant colours. I like they way they work with image and type and how they lay it all down on the given media. It is excellent design work. I love it!

I first came across them when i was in college in my first year. I saw the promotional mailer they put together and love the whole concept, design, colours etc of it. Since then i have kept looking at there work and used them for inspiration in alot of my own work.
