Cans in Cannes

As it’s now too expensive to fly back to London due to the school holidays, I’m still suffering in the South of France! 

Job interviews continue and with two phone calls scheduled with New York, hurricane-permitting, I’m keeping myself busy by continuing the ever-lasting kitchen installation, the third trip to IKEA as we keep discovering that we’re missing essential parts and have more cupboard doors than we need (must learn French) and then there are the sardine shops.

Sardines galore


As a packaging designer, I am a sucker for a nice label and definitely judge a book by its cover. Spending Saturday afternoon shopping in Cannes, the discovery of a sardine shop with shelves and shelves of beautifully packaged sardines inspired me with the bright colours and bold graphics.

With lovely gift sets of sardines for everyone, that’s Christmas sorted!
