  • Please Just Stop Doing And Asking For Free Work. Please.

    I shouldn’t have to start this by explaining that actual adjectives for the word “professional” are “paid” and “salaried”. If you’re selling yourself as a professional, don’t negate your title by completing work for free. And if you’re searching for a PROFESSIONAL to complete creative work for you, you shouldn’t have to be asked to…

  • Inktober, Baby!

    I’ve finally (after a bit of a false start) decided to give Inktober a go. For a while I’ve been beating myself up a bit about not giving myself enough time to just enjoy drawing further than the work that I do – and the whole point its to develop positive drawing habits, so why not?…

  • AN ODE TO OLD SCHOOL

    When I sat down to write this blog post I was in a very cheeky mood. So cheeky in fact, that instead of writing the usual post I took the opportunity to shake things up and discuss the two great passions of my life – old school music and drawing. My love for both stirred…

  • Keeping Up With The Podcasts

    Owning and running a creative business has its perks. Being surrounded by like-minded creative people is what makes me get up in the morning.

Some of us turn to music, some of us turn to exercise, but some lucky few of us get to turn to illustration.   Illustration empowers the imagination; it drives your creativity and transports you to a place of almost hypnotic concentration. Many creatives have abstract…

  • Not Your Average Wallflower

    You&Me is not just an agency that prides itself on the work delivered to clients, but also the work done for ourselves. At You&Me, you are not just a number. This is, in part, due to the fact that you count the number of “squad members” on one hand – provided you have all your…

  • Textures

    Don’t we all strive to add a sense of ourselves into the work we do? Don’t we all live to leave our own imprints on the world? If that’s the case, textures have your back. The use of textures not only allows us to personalise our designs but they also give us a medium to…

  • A Day In The Life Of An Intern

    We asked our most favourite intern, Jo to give you a peek into her life as a You&Me intern. The following serves as an educational piece to divulge the ins and outs of agency life (or make you insanely jealous of the You&Me life) – do with it what you will.  6:30am: I’m woken up…
