We have two desks available to rent in the No Days Off studio, and we’re looking for two nice people to come and share the space with us.
We are based in the Lighthouse Studios on Shacklewell Lane, E8 2EB. The desk spaces measure approx. 1220 x 650mm each, and you would be sharing with four other friendly designers. The studio is 660 sq ft, with a separate library room and a quiet room with sofa/ fridge/kettle etc. The space would suit someone who works in web design or development, animation, SFX, editing, illustration, photography, or anything else that requires sitting at a desk! We’re always up for collaborations so would be great to get someone in that we can build a relationship with.
The studio has lots of natural light and loads of character. There’s a lift, intercom, free parking and use of a shared kitchen. It’s close to all of Dalston’s glorious cafes, pubs, shops and parks. The Shacklewell Arms is right next door and Mouse & De Lotz is a few doors down, so drinking and eating are well taken care of! The space also has a roof terrace, which is great in the summer.
Lighthouse Studios is filled with lots of nice creative people, so there’s a great sense of community. It’s 5-10 mins walk from Dalston Junction, Dalston Kingsland or Rectory Road train stations.

We were asked to make a new typographic print for a recent exhibition at AMV BBDO. It was an open brief, which always makes it a lot harder. But after a few false starts, this is what we came up with.
We took the opportunity to use some our our own exclusive ‘Hatred’ paper stock, which we recently had made by Two Rivers Paper in Somerset. The stock is 300gsm and was made by pulping all our unused stationery from our old studio, so it’s 100% recycled, but in a much more direct way. It’s off-white and has a really nice fleck in it – if you use a loupe, you can probably spot some bits of our old business cards in there. We’ll post some images and video of the whole process soon.
You can buy one of these prints in our Shop – it’s an edition of 25.
Here are some images of the prints being printed, kindly supplied by James at Tru Forme.

We’ve made some new prints. They’re part of a series we’re calling ‘Rock Rock’, for obvious reasons. They are partly a comment on the dominance of white male rock stars in contemporary culture and the increasing homogeneity of rock music – once a powerful revolutionary medium, now a commercialised by-product of our capitalist society – and partly an excuse to put funny rocks on Elvis’ head.
They are available to buy now, along with our other prints, at our new online Shop. Thanks to Alex at Pumkin for getting it all online.
C-type photographic prints on Fuji Crystal Archive matt paper.
Editions of 25, signed and numbered. 10 x 14 inches. £40 + P&P
