October is up, up and away before I was ready!
I have some very exciting projects presented to me in the last few weeks from magazine postings to book ‘parts’, involving new threads organised for some new clients. The usual ‘suspects’ are as always catered for and once again from their commissions I am introduced to new clients – for which, I am humbled by their kind words and remain dedicated to ‘tinkering and dabbling’ for all my clients and pride myself in being able to write some extraordinary and unusual threads to use as they so wish.
A couple of interesting entries I can sing and shout about – completion of the FIRST edition gazette entitled ‘The Spectacle‘ for and on behalf of Piccadilly Opticians – this small but quaintly quirky opticians packs a punch, nestled in THE most wonderful Arcade in the heart of Birmingham’s City Centre. Not just a joy to work with – these folk really have things squared out, their direction and drive to cement something a little bit different amongst the giants of international eyewear sales seems to be their forte – their customer care and ‘eye’ for the newest hard to find glasses is a hard act for anyone to follow.
……….I have to admit to have a second reason to showcasing this particular project, as it is the first time I have worked alongside my eldest daughter, Emily Goater (www.behance.net/emilygoater & emilygoaterzine.blogspot.com) is also packing a punch when it comes to marking her territory in Graphic Design and in point of fact is ‘doing it on her own’ and needing no help from anyone to showcase her amazing talent – even though I am slightly biased! The two-part Goater Girls are on the map……but whats this.. a third part is making an entrance…..my youngest daughter Sally now coming up through the ranks was lucky enough to bag an event as a spin-off to this Gazette – Sally already having mapped out her own future as a photographer covered the Birmingham Style Fashion event in collaboration with Asa Slatford within the prestigious Mailbox. This year hosted by Martine McCutcheon and showcasing the fashion show in all its glory, with the likes of Harvey Nicholls, Selfridges and featuring local and international designers. Sally was in place to capture the runway shots making this her debut as Birmingham’s newest photographer at 15! (A selection of pictures from the shoot can be found by clicking ‘maybe of interest’ page – September 2012).
……..so maybe, just maybe, the trio can look forward to working together in the future – an exciting promotion to offer you folk a whole package – Goater Girls…Photography, Graphic Designing and Writing!
MY projects have once again took a back seat – may have to hitch my tent somewhere remote to complete – YOU think I am joking!
….shhhh! so who noticed the post was late?
….enjoy the rest of October…..X
