Function over form.

This print is based on a philosophy Ashley applies to his designs and believes it should be adhered to in order to achieve set goals through design. Function should always be prioritised over form and the function must not be sacrificed because of unnecessary embellishment.

1 colour screen print by Ashley O’Brien, a Birmingham-based graphic designer, who produces simple and relevant design and is inspired by music and fashion.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Not all those who wander are lost’ is a line borrowed from a poem by J. R. R. Tolkien. In the age of GPS and route planners it’s always good to remind yourself that it’s still ok to wander a little, and leave the maps for the followers.

2 colour, black and metallic copper screen print designed by UK based freelance designer Chris Henley.

The only truth is music.

I think the quote speaks for itself really - The fact that music is universal language that unites and divides, creates emotions and feelings beyond the material world. “I am a big fan of Kerouac and the ‘Beat Generation’, so it was nice to be able to mix this with my passion for typography.”

2 colour, screen print designed by UK based designer Ian Caulkett.

Black Gold - Coffee screen print

Screen printed using a highly concentrated mixture of instant coffee & espresso, these prints are varied and organic.

What started as an idea based on my new found love for good coffee, has now been realised with the help of the awesome team at Get a grip Studio. The coffee mixture is complimented by the Ellie poo 300gsm stock on which it’s printed, creating unique and individual textures. Because of the nature of the print, the colour, texture and consistency does vary between the the 30 printed, but that’s half the charm!

If you love coffee, you need one of these 30cm x 40cm limited prints, which as always, fit perfectly for a frame.

Grab one now for only £9.50 & check out more photos

Fit for a frame has landed.
The first series for Fit for a Frame is now available! It’s been a couple months of planning, organising and building, but you can check it out now at:
http://fitforaframe.com/
Fit for a Frame is all about selling gorgeous prints, thoughtful design, created by arange of designers and artists and not having the hassle and cost of finding a frame to fit it.
The big idea is to release runs of 3 limited edition screen print designs every 2/3 months, including different artists each time. It’s not about mass-production, making big bucks or a ‘that’ll do’ mentality. It’s about building a collection of varied art & design and making the experience of buying a print easy and enjoyable.

The first series of prints are available today, and have been created by Claire Hartley,Ryan Dean-Corke and James Braithwaite. For more info and photos check out the links below, and the previous blog posts for some production shots.

Do what you love, and tomorrow will pay the bills

A slight variation on the original quote by Felix Sockwell, this is the reason this website was started. If you do what you love, and love what you do, you owe it to yourself to focus on what makes you happy, not necessarily money.

This is a very bright and vivid 2 colour screen print, which looks great framed (50x70 sizes) or not. It was designed by Ryan Dean-Corke, a user interface designer currently based in the English midlands. He’s also the creator of Fit for a Frame and other projects.
