Fun and games to celebrate our fifth birthday

We recently celebrated 5 years of Fiasco Design this May. We wanted to bring together the extended Fiasco Design family (and friends) to celebrate this grand occasion by holding a birthday party at our new studio space.

On the day, we filled the space with balloons, bunting, twister, party poppers, streamers and party hats whilst our chef fired up the BBQ… Serving up street food which was happily demolished throughout the evening.

Despite doomsday weather warnings, the rain held off (on the whole) on the night and it was a great evening had by all.

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who came along and those of you who have supported us over the years. Hopefully we’ll be celebrating again in another five years!

Life as a designer – Why design is not just a job, but a life choiceThe Fiasco Design team is made up of illustrators, designers and developers, but what brings us all together is a passion to create.

Jack of all trades: Why more and more agencies are working in a multi-disciplinary wayGraphic design was a dirty word in my department at college – it was something to be kept separate from the world of illustration, and the culture that went with it, of scribbles and drawing.  Budding graphic designers worked in separate studios from the illustration students and our paths rarely crossed, even in the inky depths […]

Be brave, work smart and give thanks: 7 tips on how to make the most of your internshipOver the summer we took on a number of interns including second year design student Yee Poon. Having spent time working at a number of design studios around Bristol and Bath, we asked Yee to write a post about her experiences and the things she’d learnt.

Desktop wallpapers to celebrate the start of the summer (finally!)Since British summertime has (finally) arrived, we thought we’d design and giveaway two free wallpapers for you to brighten up your life. Since we know that the British weather can be a bit intermittent at the best of times, we decided to create these wallpapers so you had something sunny to look at, come rain or shine. We worked up […]

Moving on up… We’ve moved! But don’t worry, we haven’t gone farIn case you haven’t heard, we’ve officially moved into our brand new studio at no.12 Colston Yard. Yay! After three years at St.Nicholas House, it was time time to say goodbye. We were on the look out for a larger, more creative space to work in. After some searching, we think we’ve found a bit […]

Pixels vs Pencils: The choice between digital or hand-rendered artworkIn response to the changing culture in design studios and the pressure of tight deadlines, my design process is getting more and more digital. The first thing I turn to isn’t my sketchbook any more, it’s my drawing tablet and laptop. I’m often asked what kind of Illustration I do and what my signature style […]
