Summer vibes getting us in the mood for Thursday night with this one from Smutlee.
Beautifully illustrated children’s story book by Priyjah Paramasivam.
The Brief : To take a famous speech and create a piece of design that reflected that person.
Sollution : I took the “who taught you” speech by Malcolm X and wrote and illustrated a children’s story book that talks about equality through owls. After all how old do you have to be, to be taught about equality.

Retroflex EP and Visuals.
Packaging and visuals by third year Matt Clixby and soundtrack by his brother Ollie.
‘The influence was a fused development between consciously gathered and identifiable childhood influences, to archives if memory that reside in both sunconscious and - to a physical end - home video… In the initial stages of Retroflex, the off-camera moments that were not documented but remembered often seem to be those of re-watching the tapes as a child… Through pulping the original artefacts, all structural context is lost. With recognisable VHS aesthetic, the fear of the unknown is once again restored within the footage. The soundtrack a beckoning spiral of collaged samples with a sense of the impending and the hypnotic.’
