Association of Illustrators- Images 31 Exhibition and book launch

Congratulations to Øivind for having his work selected for Images 31 which is produced by the AOI. Øivind's work was selected from over 1,000 other illlustration submissions and has been included in the Books section of the Exhibition and Images 31 book. Images 31 is the 31st annual edition and is considered British illustration's most important document.

The AOI was established in 1973 to advance and protect illustrator’s rights and encourage professional standards. The AOI is a non-profit making trade association dedicated to its members’ professional interests and the promotion of illustration.

Unfortunately Øivind is away in Norway at the moment taking part in his annual wooden longboat endurance holiday (!), so Simon and myself went along for the private view at the London College of Communication.

Checking out D&AD New Blood 2007

It's that time of year again, where the new design graduates come to London and show their work to the masses. Being two whole years since we were in the same situation, we wanted to see what the new wave of designers had to offer. Apart from D&AD getting too big and too saturated there were some really good pieces of work which stood out from the rest.

Away from all the viewing, Si and myself bumped into an old tutor and got chatting about what we have been doing with LO-TEC for the past two years and how much we have achieved. This led to an invitation back to our old Uni in Plymouth to give a talk to the current students on setting up your very own design studio. Which is very nice. So keep watching this space for a LO-TEC seminar near you.
