Gemma Critchley: sunset

January 12, 2012 by


“How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.” George McDonald And we weren’t scared. Not tonight. Not of the amazing flood of colour into the white sky this evening. I didn’t take a picture, I just wanted to remember how it looked forever. People in the office drawn to […]

Gemma Critchley: Tangerine Dream

January 8, 2012 by


Pantone’s colour of the year for 2012 is 17-1463, or Tangerine Tango. The Measure in the Guardian remains to be convinced, but I reckon this hue definitely has legs. Not quite subdued enough to be one of spring’s hot pastels yet not bright enough to scream summer holidays, it’s an unassuming, subtle hue that is […]

Gemma Critchley: The Design Fiction of Black Mirror

January 7, 2012 by


Well, it’s been quite a week for stuff what I done gone and wrote getting re-posted elsewhere on the internet. My friend Greg over at Mount Analogue alerted me to the fact that one of my tweets had been used in a recent blog from those wonderful Made by Many chaps. Granted, it’s not the […]

December 19, 2011 by


There’s a new Sleigh Bells record coming out in January, called Reign of Terror. I absolutely loved the first record, so I’m hoping this one lives up to it. Although I must admit after seeing them live a few times, I began to get a bit tired of the taper recorder/shouting schtick. The first time […]

Gemma Critchley: I’m dreaming of a bookish Christmas

December 13, 2011 by


Everyone knows that books are the best Christmas gifts, whether giving or receiving. Well, imagine how awesome it would be to have your wrapped presents sitting happily under this awesome Christmas tree made out of books: Imagine that little beauty nestling in the corner of your living room (or, if you’re living the dream, your […]

Gemma Critchley: away to the north

December 12, 2011 by


Apols for the lack of posts, it was my birthday last week and my wonderful chap whisked me away to the land of whisky, snow and Irvine Welsh. We had a wonderful couple of days in Edinburgh, more pics to follow, but for now, let this picture of the very beautiful Edinburgh Castle in the […]
