Good morning Oxford

Typographic curiosities lurk at Oxford covered market

So, the missus and I have been living in Oxford since January of this year (before I could legitimately call her the missus, and even then I can’t call her missus as she’s Dr…) and I’m finally getting the hang of it here. The daily commute from Oxford to Paddington threatens to obliterate my creativity, so I’m going to work harder to ensure this doesn’t happen. I’ve been given some fantastic tools by colleague and friend Alastaire Allday that should change my daily habits, and now that I am equipped with the newest iPhone I have a phone that works. Meaning I can blog on the go, and share my musings in the form of the written word. Alastaire is a great copywriter and was generous with his time last week in a way that has indirectly given me the kick I needed to remember to write for myself. Starting with the blog and peppered with One Minute Briefs and my new interest in typography.

Ad that I love the most at the moment: The Robinson’s one with the psychedelic duck in the sky and the catchy, silly score. You know it, it’s colourful and fun, the perfect antidote to the current trend of overly-emotive tearjerker tv spots.
