Our first release is NOUR by French photographer Celine Stella, focussing on the way neon light is used in design, architecture and daily life in Saudi Arabia.

My long feature/interview with Jason Becker appeared on Red Bull's site. Becker was the teen heavy metal prodigy who was struck down by ALS (a kind of muscular dystrophy) in his early twenties and despite paralysis and the other constraints of the disease, has continued to make music. Read the piece here.
My long feature on the four year quest to redesign, rebuild and eventually dredge up the long lost Doves Type was in the Sunday Times magazine in January. Visit Typespec for more information and to buy the font, and read the story behind the Times' paywall for £1 here.

I was a guest on Monocle 24's excellent Daily radio show talking about the changing demographics of the heavy metal scene with host Andrew Mueller. You can listen to it here, I'm on from around the 50 minute mark.
I was the in-studio guest on The BBC World Service's 'Weekend' programme for two hours a couple of Sundays ago, discussing the European elections, South African truth and reconcilliation, archive footage of the British Empire and the release of America's hostage soldier from Afghanistan.
