After a year or so of this blog collecting cyber-dust, I have decided that a ‘reboot’ may be in order.
Since graduating from University my minimal designs and artwork have come to a halt. For me, this is a shame. I love creating work like my movie posters – it’s good practice for me and it’s cool to be able share them online. Unfortunately I am powerless to stop the inevitability of growing up and the demands of non-student life, which means less time to play on Photoshop.
HOWEVER – I think it would be cool to keep my blog running this year, as a platform for a my thoughts and ideas around the future of tech, design, and advertising. Heck I’ll throw in the occasional bit of original design when it happens.
Let’s see what happens.

About 12 months ago I posted a spoof poster advertising/mocking the iPhone 5 (original post here)
I actually liked the art direction of the poster, using the apple logo within the number 5 is a neat touch I feel. I went with the slightly sarcastic (yet somewhat true) strapline of “Because you have more money than sense” – my little dig at apple fanboys who just can’t help but snap up the latest apple goodies.
Overall I was happy with the design, it was a bit of a laugh and I re-shared it earlier this month when the phone was actually released. I thought that would be it, just another portfolio piece done.
So Imagine my surprise when my friend texts me to say that Sabotage Times had posted a photo to their Facebook account showing an apple retailer in China that was proudly displaying my poster in their shop window:
I have no idea where or when the photo was taken – I’d love to find out though.
Obviously my sarcasm doesn’t translate well in the far east.
