Museum of Brands

Thought I'd put a few images up from when we went to the Museum of brands, packaging and advertising in Notting Hill. It was pretty cool walking through the different ages of brands and getting a feel for the era. Some of these 3D ads for Smarties and Polo also seemed well ahead of their time, as did some of the Cadbury's Roses boxes. Anyway it's a cool little place to visit and they have an exhibition on at the moment about sustainable packaging sponsored by Tesco.

I'm scared, but I want an ice cream

I love the adverts for Alan Carrs new show. A bit creepy at first but so funny! Shame the show isn't as good though.

Lemon's First Award

Saturday was our opening night for our final show at uni and also the night of the first annual Trevor Awards. This is us having just won one, meaning we get a placement at BMB which is great news. It was a really good night and would be great to carry on every year at BCU. The 181 show is on until Saturday 19th at BIAD, Gosta Green in Birmingham so check it out!

Lewis Hamilton, 104

I couldn't resist but take a picture of this crazy old man and his beloved scooter, bless him. I genuinely believe he felt he was Lewis Hamilton on the final straight of Silverstone. I was dying for some traffic to arrive but it didn't happen unfortunately, although at one point he completely defied the rules of driving and cut the corner sadistically heading into oncoming traffic. The sad thing is i followed him for at least 10 minutes hoping he would irate people, i guess this shows i have an obsession for drama and peoples wrongdoings.

Coffee Art

The other day I went to a Gloria Jeans Coffee place instead of a Starbucks. They do this really cool thing where they draw pictures on your drink with the sauce. I almost didn't want to drink it to preserve it. This chocolate macadamia latte is nothing on the Starbucks gingerbread one though, even if you can only get it in winter.

Obama in Birmingham

The other day we went to see the Obama's People exhibition at BMAG, a series of photographs by Nadav Kander. Each portrait showed a different personality, some very serious and what you would expect and some more revealing. The photo's were so detailed some of them were actually quite scary. Definitely worth a look though, especially for free.
