The 101st Tour De France / Tim George, 2014

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”.

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.

NEW — photography portfolio

Untitled (from Hastings) /  Tim George, 2013

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!

New photography — Brighton

Brighton / Tim George, 2013

Brighton / Tim George, 2013

New photography up on my Flickr page – taken during a traditional English bank holiday seaside trip. I always find places like Brighton a really interesting challenge to photograph. It’s so difficult to bring a new dimension to the place – the same clichéd shots have been done over and over again.

I’m not saying I found anything radically different this time around, but the light was gorgeous and I’m pretty pleased with a few of my shots. Certainly captures the feel of the place anyway.

Oh, also, I’m loving the new Flickr since it was re-designed. A massive improvement from the old style, it feels really fresh and clean now, as well as being a whole lot simpler.

Motorbikes — new versions out now

Motorbikes — new series / Tim George, 2013

I’m very pleased to announce a new series of prints, available now. Last year I produced a poster of 9 motorbikes that my dad owned during the 70s & 80s. I have now taken them a step further and produced an alternate series, abstracting the forms, graphics & colours.

Both the originals and the 6 brand new psychedelic versions are available to buy at Print–Process. The giclée prints are available as either A1 or A2 size, and printed on 230gsm ultra-smooth fine art matt paper.

I’m massively grateful to Blam for agreeing to stock my art on his insanely cool site! Check out the full gallery for loads of original prints by the likes of Spin, James Joyce, Oliver Jeffers, Peter Crawley, Build, Maddison Graphic, Emily Forgot… the list goes on and on! I’m honoured to sit alongside them.

So what are you waiting for? Buy my prints now at Print–Process!

New photography – TfL Acton Depot

Acton Depot / 2013

Some new shots are now up on my Flickr – taken during a tour of the London Transport Museum Depot in Acton, West London.

If you’re in any way interested in graphic design, typography, and/or trains, I would suggest you get down there as soon as you can. It’s an absolute treasure trove of beautiful items from the network’s rich 150-year history.

Unfortunately, being a depot, there’s very little natural light, so please excuse the grainy, artificial tone of the shots. I’m sure you’ll agree, the content more than makes up for it.

30 years of the Space Shuttle – available now

30 years of the Space Shuttle / Tim George, 2013

To coincide with the launch of my new site, I have a new print for sale! Again, I’ve been working on this one for a long time… ever since the Shuttle was retired in July 2011, in fact.

Anyway, better late than never. I’m really pleased with the print – it’s been exquisitely screenprinted by K2 screen, in 3 colours (white, grey, orange) on dark grey stock from GF Smith.

It’s a limited edition of 30, available to buy now for £30 each. Go get one!
