Swedes, olives ... and a glittering awards ceremony

Last week was a busy one. Here’s a quick round up of the non-work highlights:

We went to see Jens Lekman at The Glee Club on Wednesday and, if you’ve not heard his music before, I’d heartily recommend having a listen - and definitely go to see him live if you get the chance. He’s a real showman and a great storyteller. His trip to see Nina in Berlin is classic ...

Foodwise, we were lucky enough to have lunch at Piccolino’s, a new Italian restaurant on Oozells Square (where Petit Blanc used to be), before its official opening last Friday. The food is great and the chairs there are massively comfy. Okay, that might be a slightly strange thing to point out, but they really are particularly pleasant ... oh, and their homemade ice cream’s delicious.

And finally, the BYPY awards were on Thursday night and we had a fantastic evening. It’s not often that graphic designers get the chance to attend a black tie shindig, so it was pretty exciting - though James wasn’t thrilled at seeing himself on the big screen, as you can see!

Sadly, he didn’t get a gong this time but between you and me, I reckon that being shortlisted as one of the top 18 young professionals in the city is a pretty huge achievement. Wragge & Co’s Anthony McCourt won the overall title so massive congratulations to him; a worthy winner and genuinely nice guy. Right, that’s more than enough back-patting for one post ...

So, that was your super-quick Supercool catch-up for last week!
