You’ve probably guessed that we think September rocks! We are of course big fans of Summer and love nothing more than taking a well deserved holiday. But really, everyone knows September is where it’s at… So we’re giving you full permission to embrace our guilty pleasure.
Here’s a round-up of the top reasons why we love this month. Do you agree or have anything to add? Let us know and we’ll give a FREEMaglus to the best comment!
1.Take advantage of that Back-to-School Mindset!
September is the perfect month for setting yourself new goals and starting afresh. Don’t waste that get-prepared mindset of this back-to-school time of year! Shorter evenings mean more time to spend indoors to work on new projects. And all that ‘September studious’ buzz is giving us so many ideas. Plus it’s the perfect excuse to finally use all that stationery you’ve been swooning over!
We got a brilliant response from Yvonne’s blog post last week. As so many of you admired her work and story, we’ve decided to show you some more! Through chatting with Yvonne over emails, we discovered a really lovely project she had been working on – ‘Brighton Panorama’. The monochrome silhouette images really caught our attention and we knew that we just had to share them! We’ll leave you in the capable hands of the talented lady herself to explain the interesting journey from sketch to reality…
We’ve a guest blogger this week, a lovely friend and user of Maglus – Yvonne J Foster. Yvonne is a Brighton based artist and designer. Using iPad, photography, collage and her general scribblings, she creates her own world. We think Yvonne’s work is very special and the story behind it is even more inspirational.
Read on and enjoy looking at some of her beautiful pieces…
Hi, Yvonne here. I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself and what I do. So…here goes!
I simplify portraits of people and remove all their complications. I break down images into each component part, shape and colour. I love to disappear into my work and get caught up in the details.
Hi guys, Paula here..
Once again, I’m leaving you in the capable hands of Noel Joyce. This week, he is talking about new and exciting tech developments. Noel lives and breathes design and technology! So he is the ideal person to tell you more about the future of products coming our way in the not so distant future. Lucky for us, these developments will work perfectly with the Maglus product range! We’re looking forward to interacting and embracing the next generation of design. Now over to Noel to explain some more…
For a few months now we have been hearing all the rumours about the next generation of iPad and iPhones. It’s been pretty interesting as with the advent of the new Apple Watch, Apple have introduced several new technologies that while they are not as apparent right now will probably change how we interact with (in particular Apple) devices.
We wanted to bring you something a bit different for this post. If you’ve been following our blog, you’ll know that Noel Joyce has been contributing regular posts on all aspects of Maglus and design. We thought it was about time you guys found out a little more about the designer behind Maglus. We managed to tear him away from all his creative productivity for a few minutes to chat about all things design.
1. How did you get into design?
After I had in accident in 2006 that ended my career in the Irish Army and left me confined to a wheelchair, I looked to start a new career as I could no longer perform my duties in the Military.
