Rip it up & start again

Coralie Bickford-Smith recently designed a wonderful advice poster, partly inspired by the Orange Juice song 'Rip it up & start again'.

The association feels especially relevant as Edwyn Collins
(lead singer of Orange Juice, solo artist and idol of mine) suffered a debilitating stroke in 2005. His remarkable determination to recover - learning to speak, read, write, walk, draw, sing and compose again - is documented in the BBC Scotland documentary Home Again (see part 1 of 4 below).

As Coralie writes:

"It's all about reinvention: that it's flexible; that when it feels like it's going wrong it's ok to start again and when you do things over, although it's a chore, it makes them better. Practice makes perfect...."
