#FridayFive with Shillington Design Teacher Ed Baptist

Inspiration can come from anywhere. So, on the first Friday of each month, we’re sharing some of our Shillington team’s favourite things from the past four weeks. This month, Shillington Manchester Teacher Ed Baptist shares what was on his radar in August.

1. To Follow: Timo Kuilder

I’m really digging the “flowie” style and laidback colour palettes of Timo Kuilder. It’s just what you need to mellow you out and will have you rushing for your pencil and pad.

2. To Read: Be Brave by Dixon Baxi

The crazy talented lot at Dixon Baxi decided that during their lockdown they’d pull together a digital book called Be Brave and it’s just ace… I mean any time you get a behind-the-scenes look into the workings of a headline-grabbing agency, it’s worth it!

3. To Go Stay Home: Koboemsuk Furniture

I mean we’re still in weird times so stay safe! So, if you can’t get out and about, then zen out watching these master craftsmen & women create some beautiful bits of furniture.

4. To Listen: Weird Fishes by Lianne La Havas

This is what happens when one of the best tracks of all time; from one of the best albums of all time; get covered by the most beautiful voice of our time? Heavy repeat for guaranteed good times.

5. Wildcard: Daddy Daughter Kick Flip!

Do you want to know what sheer joy looks like? Well, here’s a video of a daddy daughter first kick flip! It will make you wanna get back out in the driveway and give it a few more tries yourself.

Take a look back at what’s been inspiring our team over the last two years! And for some drool-worthy visuals from our Shillington students, read 16 handmade album covers and 14 app designs.
