In the depths of winter 2016 Sarah Maycock and Tom were invited to the Natural History Museum to discuss a new and exciting (top-secret) project. Ushered through a side door they gathered round a grand table in one of the many rooms of the museum that are closed off to the general public. Benji from Weidemann Lampe showed us some complex looking floor-plans, which were the initial thinkings of the 'Whales: Beneath the Surface' exhibition that opened it's door in July 2017.
We are very pleased to announce that the winner of this year’s SAA Associate Prize for New Talent in Illustration at New Designers 2017 is Sophie Melissa from Falmouth University.
The award is given to a graduate in Illustration who is judged to have created the most fresh and inspiring work at New Designers. The prize is a career-making six months trial representation by one of the SAA’s member agents to be revealed soon, so watch this space.
Matt as always has been a drawing machine and working very hard recently. Time Out asked if Matt could produce their British Airways cover wrap of two cocktails with the titles, 'What if your next Manhattan was in Manhattan, and What if your next Martini was in Santorini?'
I think we can all agree it definitely puts you in the mood for a holiday.
We've had quite a boozy month here at HF, with Tom Haugomat's Stanley Brewing Beer illustrations, now we're proud to show off Jean Jullien's latest work for Majestic Wines. Jean created 10 stand alone images, without any name, logo or type, to buck the trend of conventional wine labels and to make them fun and playful.
