Thibaud Herem – Town & Country Crest

Thibaud Herem teamed up with MONOGRAM London late last year to help brand and launch a new title for Hearst Magazines called Town & Country magazine.

MONOGRAM’s concept was to highlight the brand’s rich and unrivalled heritage by creating a custom designed crest. Thibaud’s hand crafted style was perfectly suited to this and the finished crest embodied the perfect mix of understated luxury perfect for the magazines demographic. It was also used across a range of marketing materials to celebrate the launch and looked particularly nice as a black foil on black.

James Grover paints the interior of Zizzi Ristorante in Meadowhall, Sheffield.

James Grover was asked to create murals to decorate the main restaurant wall and corridor and to bring individuality to the site by finding inspiration in local history or landmarks. His work is based around the rich musical heritage of the city of Sheffield and is initially seen as a decorative map. After looking closer at the mural, "...the city centre map’s street names are song titles with the year in which they were released...creating a giant quiz and igniting the natural competitive spirit to solve puzzles. For example, one street is named 'Sing It Back (1998)' – the answer would be 'Moloko'. The corridor features stylised album covers, also showing only the release date", he says. James wanted to hold the viewer's attention with this project and provide a talking point too - the restaurant is in a shopping centre and has a high turnover of customers with shorter meal times. The mural was painted on-site using acrylic and emulsion.

Robyn Neild for Headline Books

Robyn Neild was delighted to be asked to illustrate a new series look
for best selling author Jo Thomas. Robyn worked with our friends in
the Headline art department to create a signature style for Jo’s
novels. Beginning with re-jacketing the runaway hit ‘The Oyster
Catcher’  Robyn worked with the team to produce a beautiful cover, in
her fabulous watercolour style. Robyn has since created covers for
‘The Chestnut Tree’, which was released at the end of last year and
‘The Olive Grove’ which is out in March.

David Sparshott – Game of Inches

Late last year David Sparshott was approached by Brookyln’s finest Doubleday & Cartwright and asked to work on a huge project for US corporate giants General Electric (GE).

The agency were striving to build a sports-relevant campaign to articulate GE’s Internet of Things innovations. As athletes know, incremental improvements — in training, nutrition, or strategy — can lead to major gains. Using this analogy the agency build a campaign to show the same rules apply to industry in the information age. A content-driven campaign known as “Game of Inches” was build around this premise.

To bring this all to life they turned to David, seeing his illustration as having the tactile quality required to communicate the human story behind the technology. As well as still illustrations, his work was also animated into a series of short spots. You can watch the full set here.

The campaign rolled out across Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, Tumblr and a YouTube campaign promoting the “Game of Inches’ during the Super Bowl XLIX.
