Fantastic new East London prints from Tomartacus
Cockney Sparrow at Design Store
Jude has lived in Bow E3 for 18 years and draws her inspiration from traditional East London culture, and, in particular Cockney Rhyming Slang. An experienced graphic designer, Jude previously worked as international creative director for two global media brands where she split her time between London, New York and Tokyo. Working from her studio in Bow, under her own name and the Cockney Sparrow brand, Jude's bold designs explore the juxtaposition of the traditional and contemporary.
Wooden Jewellery from Turpentine.
Not that sort of Turpentine, but new jewellery from Turpentine Design. Created by in-house designer Jude de Berker, and inspired by her dad's carpentry workshop, she has produced a range of jewellery that mixes solid walnut wood with brushed steel, copper and brass.
We are delighted to have the full range of the collection in our stores right now
One of the great things about having a shop is when great design literally walks through the door. Well in the case of Slow Lighting that is exactly what happen a couple of weeks ago when designer and inspiration behind Slow, Luke Rose walked into our Stoke Newington shop with his latest creation.
The 'Podium Lamp' is a table top lamp featuring a spun brass plate base which ingeniously incorporates hidden touch control to adjust the brightness and all to turn the light on and off. With a copper version in development we are chuffed to bits to have these beautiful lamps in store.
Swissted prints from Mike Joyce
Swissted is an ongoing project by graphic designer Mike Joyce, owner of Stereotype Design in New York City. Drawing from his love of punk rock and Swiss Modernism, two movements that have (almost) nothing to do with one another, Mike has redesigned vintage punk, hardcore, new wave, and indie rock show flyers into International Typographic Style posters. Each design is set in lowercase Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk medium—not Helvetica. Every single one of these amazing shows actually happened!
