Nordic hill house

Nordic hill house by Rebecca Hawkes

I talk and write quite often about appreciating the small things in life, capturing beauty, being grateful and overall living slower. These are values I hold dear to my heart and I believe that we can all gain a lot more in life from simply appreciating what do have. Beliefs, however, are different from practice …

One photo every hour | A Saturday in October

One photo every hour | A Saturday in October ~ Rebecca Hawkes

A day in my life as a designer looking for inspiration outside of the usual ‘office hours’. One Saturday in October I took one photo every hour to show how I get back in touch with my creativity and give myself time to create. 9am – 10am As its the weekend I don’t even attempt …

Danes start the new year with a bang

2014 went out with a bang. Several of them. From becoming tour guides and host, to the joys of spending the last few days of the year with those closest to my heart, our year finished with a final bang as Danes light up the streets with streams of fireworks. We were in Copenhagen, a …

You can always go home

As the saying goes, ‘you can always go home’. That is exactly what I did a few weeks ago. Yes, if you have been wondering why some of these posts have been few, and far between this here, is the evidence. Cafés in Brighton, distracting graphic design, beaches, tea parties and of course good friends …

Spotlight On // Fanny Latour Lambert

Sometimes great things happen. Like stumbling across art that makes your eyes light up. This was the case when I came across the photographs of French photographer Fanny Latour-Lambert. Her images are playful, thought out in a way that makes me go ‘huh? what a great way to look at that theme’ (for example her …

Spotlight On // Patrick Fitzgerald

If you are a reader of Kinfolk (if you are not, I highly recommend picking up a copy) or their newly released book The Kinfolk Table, you will be familiar with the photography of Parker Fitzgerald. I have spent quite a bit of time looking at his work but had never put a name to …

On Set | How to book an agency model in 5 steps

Now it may seem so simple after booking models for several years but I still look back at my university years and wish someone had told me how to book an agency model. I think because the steps are simple that once you have worked with model agencies you quickly forget how difficult it once …
