"The Street Where Originality Lives"

Last summer I wrote about some excitement in the Wick. Here at Bridget Riley Studios we were all very preoccupied watching the shooting of the aptly (for us) named Adidas advert "The Street Where Originality Lives". Beckaham and Snoop Dawg have been spliced in, I can't imagine they graced the Wick with their presence.
As my good friend and studio neighbour Wilfrid Wood said:
"...that looks like terrifically good fun! I wish Dace Road really was like that all the time."

Found in Bath

I have just delivered some of my prints to a lovely new shop in Bath. Found is a boutique stocking undiscovered fashion labels, heritage brands, hand printed stationary, books and a tightly edited range of accessories from across the world. It is a true gem in one of my favourite cities.

The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Awards

I have just designed the poster for The Foyle Young Poets Awards 2010. Its a nice big A2 number that hopefully will be prominently displayed on school notice boards up and down the country.
The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award is now firmly established as the key award for young writers aged between 11 and 17 years. Founded by the Poetry Society in 1998, the competition has been supported by the Foyle Foundation since 2001.
Each year 100 winners (85 commendations and 15 overall winners) are selected by a team of high profile judges, and receive their awards at an annual prize-giving event on National Poetry Day. Winners from the 15 to 17 age category attend a week-long intensive residential Arvon course where they develop their creative writing skills and establish peer support structures. Winners aged 11-14 benefit from poetry residencies at their school followed by distance mentoring.
Alongside these prizes Winners of the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award benefit from on-going support and encouragement, via publication, performance, promotion and internship opportunities.
