London visit – Pt. 2 – Company Magazine

My second visit in London, which was my first individual visit, was with Company Magazine, a young women’s fashion magazine. I met with Tanita Montgomery, the magazine’s Art Editor in the lobby of the Hearst Magazine Building in London, having arrived freshly from Amelia’s and said she could see her on the pages of Company. She also liked my Macmillan work (the fox & bear story), which is one of the favourites of everyone I’ve met so far it seems, and liked my use of pattern and colour in general. It’s funny, because the Macmillan pieces were quite a last minute decision on my part and rather rushed, yet they seem to draw a lot of attention. I suppose it shows that when something comes quickly and naturally to you as pattern seems to do to me, there’s a good chance it might be right and it will work out in the end.

How I can say the meeting went very well, is Tanita has asked me to do some work for the magazine! Though I’m not at liberty to share much about it here at the moment, I am obviously quite excited and am looking forward to it as it will be some of my first work on a national scale.
