Keith Robinson‘s raw talent for strong characterisation and indisputable drawing skills have made him an irreplaceable credit to the Bright family for the past 3 years. Therefore it came to no surprise as the 150th Anniversary of Alice in wonderland arrived this year, that the UK creative was hand picked to illustrate an issue of stamps commemorating the globally loved story. Previously, Keith had worked with Guernsey Post to create several stamp issues and their children’s character, Penny the Postie, who features in two picture books he also author illustrated.
Ben Scruton was delighted to once again team up with NESTA to create another fabulous set of illustrations. NESTA's upcoming report, ‘Creativity Vs the Robots’ suggests that the higher the level of creativity in your job, the least likely it can be automated in the future. NESTA have designed a fun online quiz, which measures the creative and social content of your job to give you one of six results ranging from a high probability of automation to a low probability of automation. Ben was asked to create six ‘cyborg’ characters for the results page of the quiz. Ben absolutely loved working on the project, which allowed his trademark humour to shine through.

A particular hit which landed on desks and screens early this year was the stunning work that Jordan Metcalf created for Advertising Age’s “Top Ad Campaigns of the 21st Century” issue.
Jordan was commissioned last year to create the cover, ebook cover and two badges for online use to support the realise of the issue. The team at Advertising Age were looking for a very modern and future oriented approach to the typography, well ask and you shall receive.
The issue contains the top 15 ad campaigns of the 21st Century along with behind the scenes stories of how the ground breaking BMW Films were created, how the guerrilla tactics of American Legacy Foundation’s Truth campaign inspired, how The Man Your Man Could Smell Like and a Subservient Chicken showed how much fun interactivity could be and why PC vs Mac made comparative advertising not only palatable, but entertaining.

Joe’s illustration focuses on the Johnnie Walker journey from Scotland to Mumbai, depicting scenes from India's busiest and most vibrant city. The majestic giant Bengal tiger welcomes Johnnie Walker through the gateway to India, into a bustling indian landscape. From the high rise buildings in Mumbai's metropolitan region, to India's beautiful landscapes of mountain temples and exotic wildlife with elephants, peacocks and monkeys.
Much like Mumbai, this drawing melds the traditional and the modern, combining elements of Mumbai's spiritual past and prosperous future.
Jonathan Leach was thrilled to illustrate an article for The Observer Magazine recently. His signature fantasy style captured the warmth and harmonious nature of the article, which took tips from the animal kingdom on keeping warm during winter.
We were also recently treated to a special visit from Jonathan at our offices. He travelled from Southampton armed with a huge trunk full of his stunning hand-crafted puppets which inspire his illustration work. Watch this space for an exciting children's book project Jonathan is working on!
Soaring Penguin Press' latest issue of Meanwhile… is a great anthology of comic stories by top notch talent, both new and old. It features, Fish 'n' Chips, the first in a series of single page strips by new talent Euan Cook, which gets a great review in Forbidden Planet's Blog:
"… a fish 'n' chip supper… telling a simple mood piece, musing on isolation, on a lack of focus in life, monologue moaning, capped off with a final few panels where the isolation is hammered home by the moaner's companions complete lack of attention. It's a nothing strip in many ways, but damn, it's an entertaining nothing."
Watch out for the next instalment by Euan in Meanwhile #3

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.
