A relatively short entry this month... let's put it down to Easter.

Speaking of which... you may still be able to get hold of the Lisa Jones designed mug that Melt commissioned to hold their Easter Eggs. They had them in store last week filled not only with a chocolate egg but also with the option of other chocolates from their range. If you're in the market for a chocolate recommendation can I point you towards their dark chocolate discs with orange and fennel.

Lisa has also designed some new cards for her range – they are already available from her internet store.

Justin Hibbs has work in a group exhibition, titled Form Follows Attitude, at ArtRepCo in Zurich. The exhibition opened on March 27th and runs through until May 23rd.

Canon produced a short film last year partly based on Pip Hackett and London Fashion Week. It is being shown on BBC world, CNN and National Geographic over April and May, or you can watch it on this link.

Jay Burridge's one-off billboards for Levis were up all around London last month - one of them for an unexpectedly short time as it was stolen only the day after the day that it was installed. These boards based on Hokusai's wave were the 2nd batch of billboards that Jay has done for Levis – the first were a series of denim butterflies. Jay's will also be taking part in Apart's forthcoming "A show in that nice old bank on the corner" in W11, running over May and June, along with his part-time collaborator Savage Henry.

The windows of the new Top Shop store in New York were designed by our very own Jo Ratcliffe. I haven't seen pictures of her air kissing J-Lo at the opening night but am sure she must have been there somewhere.

Sydney played host to a conference called Semi Permanent on April 3rd & 4th. One of the speakers was Kate Gibb. I don't know whether her talk was of her love for mark making, printed ephemera and Japanese food or whether she talked of her ongoing infatuation with Neighbours - maybe if I searched youtube thoroughly enough I could find out.
