RECENT WORK: CEREAL MAGAZINE


In case you're not familiar with Cereal Magazine, it's a new quarterly publication 'in pursuit of food and travel'.  Volume one is out now and it really is a thing of beauty - be sure to check it out! 

I recently did some design work for the Cereal Mag blog which you can see here.  This particular post is about the French island, Il de Ré, which I am now frankly desperate to see for myself.  In fact, it has reminded me how much I love France and how it might just have to be our next holiday destination.  (Please?).  

The images are by photographer Lucy Wilkinson who says of the island: "Il de Ré is home of Cognac, Saint-Martin (added to the World Heritage Site list in 2008), and the same number of hours of sunshine as its counterparts in the south of the country.  Cars appear seldom used and the residents' transportation preference for bicycles is helped by the essentially flat landscape; the highest point on the island rising just 20 metres above sea level."

Cognac, cycling and sunshine?  SIGN. ME. UP. 

Head on over to Cereal blog to see the full article!

  3. Many times before I've noticed how stellar you are at cropping images, and this recent work of yours is no different. You know where to create that good kind of tension. Such a good eye for that!

  7. I have a friend who owns a bookshop and she pointed this out to me when I visited the other day. I did a half-heated quick flick through and didn't buy it. Having seen this post and a brief overview of the main topics travel and food, I have promptly gone and emailed her and asked her to put one aside for me! Your photos look stunning! I look forward to seeing it all in hard copy. (I'm also visiting your blog for the first time and looking forward to taking a virtual snoop)
