If there’s one thing that Apple have got down to a T, it’s packaging design. They know that it’s about so much more than the product – it’s about the whole experience, from looking, to purchase, to unpacking, to setup. I recently upgraded to Snow Leopard, and was reminded how much fun it is to use Apple products. It’s so beautiful and intricately packaged. Wonder how many people use Apple for that reason alone?

Posters live where things happen. So much culture comes to us through a screen – whether it’s movies, the internet, or video games. But posters live in theaters and clubs and political rallies, places where real people meet other real people. And I believe our need to do so is even stronger now that we’re in such a virtual world.
I won’t be blogging tomorrow, so I created a little design to send some Christmas cheer your way in advance…
Have a great Christmas!
I’m hosting a gig tomorrow night to mark the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day. It’s in Bloc (Bath St, Glasgow) from 9pm, costs £4, and features music from the delightful Yvonne Lyon, Ben TD, and the Potential Strangers. How’s that for your money’s worth! Come along, bring yer mates, and lets raise some funds for Christian Aids vital work on the HIV/AIDS pandemic!
Any Glasgow-ish bloggers wanna re-post the flyer on their site for me?! Thanks!
This morning I’m doing some research on designing a calendar, and on designing a brochure for the Fields Of Life guesthouses here in Kampala. It’s been fairly relaxed so far, nothing to strenuous, as I’m just taking it easy and getting acclimatised. At the weekend four different teams from Northern Ireland will be arriving, so all the staff in the guesthouses are busy busy busy preparing for that. Then things will really kick off!
I’ll be taking some photographs over the next week or two of the two guesthouses, Shalom and Emmaus, trying to capture them at their best. If you’ve got any experience of interior photography, leave a comment or drop me a line and give me some advice!!
