Hayley Scott // Thu 28 Apr 2016 05:36 pm

I'm  Hayley Scott, a music journalist and DIY music promoter based in Leeds with plans to open a new DIY music venue, record shop, cafe and bar in LS6. Leeds has long been a city that’s fostered a music scene that is as vibrant as it is often overlooked. That’s somewhat changed lately: as ever, beyond the mainstream things are kept quietly underground, but Leeds is increasingly cited as a city that’s synonymous with DIY music, and it’s this attitude of doing things on your own terms that’s keeping our music scene alive and well.

Abby Dix-Mason Leeds Inspired // Wed 13 Apr 2016 06:30 pm

Introducing Graham Pilling, the fourth of our Leeds Film Festival poster designers. Graham is a graphic artist who produces bold and compelling design and illustration work under the moniker Army of Cats.
 
“I'm fortunate that my work spans a nice mix of client and personal projects. One month I may be working on branding for a startup, and  the next it might be a record cover or t-shirt art. It allows me to have a nice little toolbox of different styles to dip into and it keeps my work interesting – both for me and hopefully its intended audience!
