/// South American Souvenirs ///

It's been a while! 

I've taken time off after finishing my MA in Sequential Design and Illustration, which have been a wonderful 2 years. I am missing our studio already! 

I've had the luxury of being able to visit South America for two months (Paraguay/ Brazil/ Argentina) and we left straight after taking down our MA show in September, which by the way turned out well-visited and popular. South America was balm for body, soul and eyes - colours are much more important and vibrant over there than in grey Europe. 

We visited a great museum for south american indigenous art in Paraguay (http://www.museodelbarro.org/) which has been truly inspiring. And we found some fantastic retro gems in Buenos Aires's antique markets with wonderful typographic designs and adverts. The cover models of 'El Grafico' look like Brighton hipsters! 

With all these new impressions I'm now looking forward to throwing myself into a new chapter in BERLIN and start working on a lot of new projects!
