Dublin, could quite be possibly, be leading the charge in neon signs for the folically challenged. Make no beans about it, that’s some statement. Somebody, somewhere, without an ounce of irony – but possibly a moustache – decided the best way to market their message to the greater Dublin area […]

While convincing the Archipelago gents to stand out in the Baltic night air out in Dollymount to catch the Pigeon Chimneys at night for this portrait, I took the oppurtunity to try some light painting. Its simply painting with light into a long exposed frame – think of writing your […]

This is chocolate. Well, no it’s not. But it kinda is… Strangely enough, for something that is so familiar, so commonplace, so everyday or even twice a day, chocolate is a bit of a mystery. Any film clip you see of a master chocolatier making chocolate always starts with them […]

RIP David Carr. Sad news this morning about this passing of David Carr, famed New York Times columnist and bullshit destroyer. I embarrassingly enough wasn’t too familiar with his work, life and deserved notoriety before he dropped over to Dublin in November for and off-WebSummit talk courtesy of fine folk […]

Function overrides form in this. You need to be able to see a fast moving sticker printing press with tack sharpness. And you need to be able to explain to the designer that you can modify to the die-cut without affecting the grid bleed on the printing press (or something […]

I was lucky enough to have some down time on commission over in New York last spring. I was in the throes of a new found love and amazement with Android’s Photosphere – it’s a pretty amazing bit of software tacked onto the later native stock Android camera which allows […]
