Sat 5th Sept: No Days Off Update
Just at the moment Im catching up with the lastest news from different departments to see what everyone else has been up to over the summer. Teo Connor and Patrick Duffy are the terrible two that work as the team "No Days Off" who don't just have a brilliantly shrewd name but also turn out equally astute graphic design. Somehow they managed to steal a few minutes from the grindstone to send over these images of their latest projects.
The first client here is Paloma Faith, who's album book and single sleeve they have art directed. They have also informed me that Paloma's is performing at The Scala soon, which everyone should go to as she is amazing live...............
The second album artwork they have been attending to is She Keeps Bees record 'Nests'. It is currently album of the week in NME available at Rough Trade now or on iTunes for the absolute steal price of only £4.99! Its BEEn on constant play in the NoDaysOff studio for ages and according to their personal review "if you like the White Stripes and PJ Harvey, get it. Apparently Morrisey is a fan, which usually mean the band are absolutely shite, but this time he seems to have got it right." You have been told!
The third image here is Electronic Poet which is a design for a new clothing range, soon to be on sale in Oki Ni and also online at www.paper-scissor-stone.co.uk.
Last but not least is a snap from work in progress of a series of 'NO' paintings for an exhibition in the pipeline for a future show. All pieces are designed on reclaimed items from the streets of Whitechapel, where the duo are based.
