This guy once told me that he must be donating to charity because even though work takes up everyday he’s poor all the time. I now know the feeling. With that said.. PRAGUE HERE I COME!

Absence & Silence

"Better to have a spectacular failure than a mediocre success"

- Matthew Harding

It’s a wonderful thing when you find your collection of notes. I learned that we should be scared of bad design and that in the field of 2D thinking a word is a thousand pictures … providing it is the right word. As a design student, jumping in the industry where competitiveness is beyond ridiculous, I feel the need to be able to establish a direction and a drive. Avoid becoming lost upon the waves of mediocre successes or worse yet, forgettable failures. Having said that I didn’t set out to write this on the MG News feed to regurgitate and recount what I learned, but more so to attempt to inspire the same sort of creativity I found earlier this year (If not for myself, for others too)

I want to be exposed to ideas and then get addicted to the way of being creative when you’re in a design lab or tutorial, it’s a difficult task to be able to force ideas to fulfill a brief, yes it’s fantastic training for the real world, but it puts a big dent on your drive. We’re a little bit of a lazy generation, and we grew up less and less influenced by role models. Young Designers need successful Role Models .. this one really brought it home for me, Who do we as the next generation aspire to be? we seem (or if not, I do at least..) to be asking the wrong questions 90% of the time…

"What am I going to do?"

is the wrong question, it is

"Where am I most useful?"

When surrounded by “truths” like Designers are Wankers and Advertising is evil It is also so unbelievably difficult to find an ethical stand point in design, where does the line stand from what is commercial to what the designer intended, we aim for useful design and yet no one really buys anything for a rational reason (according to Adam Hunt anyway)I have also found the constant need to be aware that when standards decline slowly, no-one really notices. I know the MG project is just a project, and through this platformm is where I’d like to really keep to my design philosophy. It’s not about wanting to SELL things to people, clearly seeing as we’re not selling anything at the moment, it was really about creating.. and just DOING.

I set myself some role models:

James Dyson for his ridiculously heartbreaking hard work
Benjamin Hubert for establishing himself in 5 years after graduation
James and Jonathan from Something Splendid.. for making something splendid
& all those other people who .. Just did.

A young illustrator Olso Davis taught me to be constantly open to silly things, Be in tune with your frustrations and annoyances because sometimes it can be the source of ideas and inspirations.

At the end of the day the biggest reward is to have your design make people smile, evoke that emotion. I hope the work that comes out of MG this summer accomplishes this. I told you earlier .. finding notes are a wonderful thing. Time to go work on something.

So tomorrow we’re getting really geared up to do this press release photoshoot of the new collection featuring the beautiful model Maddie ,our stylist Baz from Little Lady Love and the very talented photographer Christine Ai

As I spend this night frantically sewing clothes, putting together pendants, flame polishing off pieces AND moulding some cuffs, I am just so super duper excited to be doing this shoot. Stay tuned for our official Launch Party and brand spanking new Facebook page.

Yep..

Alex Gaskarth just kissed me..

This morning I finally had time to breathe for a little bit, so I decided to made some stack cuffs as a little teaser to what you can buy when the store is up. this means you can mix, match & wear them in what ever way you can think off. Not going to lie, wearing mine right now.
