Carrie Ann Stein
“The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible.”
— David Ogilvy
I found this quote this morning and I think it fits this post about Carrie Ann Stein's work well, these images are from her wonderful Postcards from Blackpool series. Carrie Ann graduated from London Central St Martins this summer but her career path has not been typical in that she has spent years as a lawyer specialising in design and trademark work. She then wanted to pursue a more creative career and went to complete nine short fashion courses at the London School of Fashion before then completing a foundation course and securing her place on a London Central St Martins BA. Her work is inspired by working class culture and her aim is to revive the British textile manufacturing Industry. These works are fun they have fantastic detail and texture and imagery, I like them very much and look forward to seeing Carrie Ann's work in the future.
