'Face This'

Jos van der Hoek and his girlfriend Jelka Priem are the innovative force behind 'Face This', a charity set up to raise funds to support education for kids in Indonesia.  In true Indonesian spirit the idea of collaboration is key, leading Jos & Jelka to work directly with local schools & their children.  Artists are invited to create a tshirt from drawings supplied by the kids.  Each artists interpretation is a pictorial union of many of the kids drawings, bound up with their own bit of creative spin.  The resulting collection has an inherent child like charm with the confidence of a contemporary design practice.  With the likes of Billie Jean and Dan Page as contributing Artists you'll be hard pushed to make a choice, ; ) !

'Eight With Em'

I don't seem to stop being impressed by the integrity & passion of our under-graduate generation of late. The students at Westminster University are one month away from their Degree show & producing some fantastic creative statements with which to impress Joe Public on their PV night, June 12th (details to follow).  Meanwhile, Emma Buckley is pursuing a career in creative journalism although currently studying 3D design at Bath School of Art & Design.  'Eight with Em' her snappily titled blog, sees her asking eight questions to creatives working within the design industry.  
Pretty industrious & impressive stuff Em.  Discover more here.
