There has always been a part of me that has lusted after exploring inner and outer Europe, unfortunately, for one reason or another, (mainly work commitments) I haven't experienced anywhere near the number of cities and countries that I would've liked to at this point in my life. It's no bother, there's always time to head out and see what's happening elsewhere in the world.
As designers, it’s well known that we consciously steer towards working with companies that claim to embrace a strong design culture - but what if the culture isn’t understood or established from the outset?

As of last week, I've been a happily married man for 1 year... This means that I'm by no means a seasoned pro at all of this married life, husband stuff just yet - I’m still learning the ropes as it were; and this post is just what I personally have found out since saying "I do".

Famous last words. With evenings' getting longer, weather getting warmer and more people picking up cycling on a daily basis... night's out on 2 wheels are coming thick and fast at the moment. It's always fun to test out the new fixed gear riders legs on some of the local hills. There's always that sadistic niggle in the back of their minds which makes them wonder whether their legs can handle some of the bigger climbs nearby.
With BBQ season now in full swing, well at least in our house it is; the Perkins' fridge is always stocked with all of the necessary ingredients and accoutrement to make burgers.
Longer evenings, warmer weather and some sunshine in places; There's only one thing for it... BBQ!
