Helsinki / 2014
News: I’ve just uploaded some brand new photography from a recent trip to the Finnish capital. Most of the shots I took were of store fronts and signage. There’s a hell of a lot of neon in the city; a friend of mine joked that it’s there because it gets so dark in the winter, so they need it to find their way around! Maybe there’s some truth in that. Anyway, there’s a lot of really beautiful old signs, amongst many other cool things to check out. Worth a visit!
Duxford / 2014
Some new photography from a recent trip to IWM Duxford.
The 101st Tour De France / Tim George, 2014
In case you hadn’t heard, the Tour de France is starting next week, in England! Say what?! The teams will be completing 3 stages in the UK, beginning in Yorkshire and finishing in London, before moving on to France. Exciting stuff!
To celebrate, Magnolia Box have got a brand new collection of bike-themed artwork for sale. I’m delighted to be a part of their selection, with 3 posters: my original “Life’s Better On Two Wheels” print, a new yellow edition to celebrate the Tour, and a BRAND NEW piece, shown above, depicting the teams taking part in this year’s race.
Thanks to James at Magnolia Box for sorting everything out. You can buy the prints now, and they’ll also be on display at Hoxton North in Harrogate from next week.
Fives / It’s Nice That, 2014
I’m pleased to have been involved in Fives, a new animation project that launched today, curated by It’s Nice That.
Each film in Fives is 5 seconds long, and celebrates a memorable moment from World Cup tournaments gone by.
Myself and Matt Lloyd made our film in homage to a crazy game between Chile & Italy in 1962, known as “the battle of Santiago”.
Nick Leith-Smith identity / Tim George, 2014
I’ve updated my portfolio site with a few new projects. The first of which is this re-branding for Nick Leith-Smith, a small architecture & design practice based in London, specialising in high-end retail & residential work. This was a really great project to work on and I’m really happy with the results.

Untitled, Hastings / Tim George, 2013
I’m very pleased to announce that my photography portfolio now has its own dedicated website.
I’ve been using Flickr for the past few years, but recently I’ve been taking my photography practice much more seriously and, as such, I thought it was about time my images were on display somewhere a bit more bespoke.
You can visit now at: photo.tim-george.co.uk
Thanks for looking!
Also, a quick note to say this is the first site I’ve built on the Cargo platform, and I found the whole experience absolutely fantastic. Over the last few years I’ve experimented with a lot of the new hosting sites – Squarespace, Koken, etc – and Cargo really blew me away with its simple design, flexibility, and ease of use. Top marks!
