Where your PPI claims and other unsolicited text messages really come from.
A student’s class celebrates his birthday. Coming from a poor family, the boy receives a gift that is beyond his wildest dreams. His reaction is quite moving. Money and expensive things aren’t everything, but the love of your friends is priceless.
The wily one is calling. Now you can tell him to stop raiding your bins and crapping all over the garden.
Today marks the launch of GDPR, the Europe-wide data protection legislation which gives more power to the individual about how their data is used, gathered, treated and stored by public and private corporations. As someone who works a great deal with customer data, this is something I’ve been prepared for for a while. My inbox meanwhile, is groaning from all the GDPR compliance emails from companies I never realised I had any dealings with XD

A GIF from a ClearScore email I received in July 2017, promoting their rejigged mobile phone app. There’s an iPhone showing the app in use. It looks very cool, although I haven’t downloaded it myself… yet. Notice also the subtly colour shifting gradients at the bottom of the GIF. Oddly satisfying.
This piece is based on a stock photo of someone’s hand holding an iPhone. I added effects via Blingee, then post-processed via the ScreenToGif software program. This piece combines aspects of the vaporwave art movement with normal advertising layout standards. Some could view this as a subtle critique on consumerism, but I’ll leave you to create your own impression.

One of the great things about smartphones, is they have democratised the ability to captures memories via video. In the olden days, you had to shell out a lot of money for a pricey camcorder. Now you can get even an old smartphone, point and click.
