As you’re probably well aware, we’re currently in the midst of a Rugby World Cup, which is being hosted right here in England. To launch what the third biggest sporting event in the world, the RFU (Rugby Football Union) last week hosted a party at London’s Dunbar Court attended by rugby legends like Jonny Wilkinson and Jason Leonard, as well as Prince Harry and Prime Minister David Cameron. Right there in the middle of proceedings was a specially commissioned series of Sarah Maycock’s beautiful illustrations.
Last year 3D illustrator Thomas Burden created a striking piece of work for Bulmers, depicting the words ‘Live Colourful’ at a festival in large block letters. Well those clever makers of tasty cider have only gone and made a real life-size version of the artwork, which was on show at various festivals throughout the UK.
Luckily our Sarah Tanat Jones was able to save the day and give them a series of informative and impactful images that tell the tale of Don José, a naive solder who is seduced by the fiery Gypsy, Carmen. Sarah’s illustrations were projected onto the sides of buildings and in public spaces throughout Scotland.
Beer brands don't get bigger than Budweiser, so when they approached Malika Favre and asked her to design their limited edition summer packaging, she jumped at the chance. The all American brief, saw Malika taking on the iconic lady Liberty in her signature bold, minimalist vector style. The results are so good they just make us want to grab a beer.
Mayfair based William & Son are on the move, packing up their Mount Street store and heading for beautiful new premises on nearby Bruton Street. To mark this new chapter they commissioned Sarah Maycock to illustrate their new building in all it's glory. Sarah also illustrated a map from the old store to the new, allowing their customers to choose between the quick route, the foodie route or Handsome Frank's favoured option, the refreshing route.
With the launch of a special edition of Pimm’s this summer, Mother London asked Paul Thurlby to create artwork for the new bottle.
The flavour in question was Strawberry (with a hint of mint), which along with the British countryside, Paul used as his inspiration for his illustrations. Twenty signed prints were also created for the campaign, which will be given away to promote the launch.
