Dark Angel, Deadly Dragon – A wall in West Lonodon

Irish born Street Artist FinDAC has created a wonderfully unique and bright style for his contemporary art. He began with street art, but has now extended into mix media in order to make an honest living. The artist, who lives and works in London, creates large murals of Geisha like women, inspired by the 19-century art movement Aestheticism.

London Design Festival 2013: Our Favourites


ldf_2013_guides_mapsWith the aim of promoting London as the creative capital of the world, last week saw the 10th London Design Festival take place. Featuring over 300 events, the team at Firedog attended a good handful.


No more West End Xmas shopping boredom!


BoxparkIt’s the time of year where we need to rush out and stock up on Christmas presents for our friends and families. Even though the vast majority of Londoners buy their presents online (do we?) – There still is a time and place for soaking up the spirit and hitting the streets.

And what is more, you don’t have to rely on the nightmare crowds (and tourists) of the West End – There are plenty of less populated, and probably more interesting places to visit. Here are a couple of destinations that have been tickling our fancy this month.

20:50 at the Saatchi Gallery – Still impressive


20:50

I went to the Saatchi gallery on the King’s Road again this weekend and was thrilled to see that the room was fill of oil again. Not something one would normally be happy with, but in this case its Richard Wilson’s 1987 masterpiece, 20:50 – Aptly named from the grade of recycled oil that makes up the bulk of the work.

The shockingly new London 2012 logo. Oh dear.


Oh dear, oh dear.Not to jump on the band wagon and pan a fellow design company, but Wolf Olins have really got it wrong this time around. (Or at least the third time around for the fine purveyors of the BA tailfin fiasco and the off-brand Abbey dibacle). For a brand logo to work it has to follow a few simple rules, before you move on to the subject of strategy. And when it comes to this execution it really does feel like the £300 000 budget was split £299 999 strategy and £1 design.
