It's all change over here with me jumping ship after six years with hamillBosket (now Hamill Bosket Dempsey). Six years of brilliant work and some lovely people. I've learned a pile of stuff and my work has moved on massively. It wasn't so long ago that it was 99% print, now it's practically that percentage of digital…I'm flippin' loving it. I still treasure print but I'm at an age when the challenges that digital brings are timely and welcome.
Thought Collective represents the amalgamation of Belfast's best kept design secret, Fishbone (don't bother looking, you won't find anything, it was that secret) and (justifiably) self-titled web alchemists RT Networks. It's a marriage made you know where.
A major bonus of the launch process has been the opportunity to work with ace copywriter Mike Reed. Mike helped us pull together the positioning text for TC. Writing about yourself, objectively, is a challenge but with Mike's help it was a pleasure and we really hope that it proves to be the first of many collaborations.
If you feel inclined, you can follow Thought Collective on The Twitter (@thoughtco). Our blog is hardly formed so I'll give that a plug once it's gathered some momentum.
Just in case you were wondering, me, Sam Irwin and Janine were pushing 350pt Gotham Bold, made out of cardboard and correx, through red lycra on Friday for what turned out to be a superb poster idea. Too early to give any more away right now.
