Commissioned by Republic Publishing for their client Microsoft, the project is part of the launch of a new app for the Lumia mobile device, designed to give people all the tools they need to create beautiful custom home screens for their device. Shanghee Shin and Vicky Scott made unique and individual artworks for the app, which also gives profile information on each artist taking part.
Hannah George created these great artworks for comparethemeerkat’s latest online campaign. Hannah was asked to illustrate Sergei the Meerkat’s recipe book and given the challenge of making a firefly fricassee and barbecued frogs legs look appealing!

The #MakeItHappen campaign by Microsoft Lumia is a campaign to make sure we all stick to our new year’s resolutions this year. To help them on their mission to achieve 31 resolutions in 31 days Microsoft asked Hey to create imagery for their #MakeItHappen bespoke artwork generator.
The idea is that it’s easier to stick to a resolution when you have a visual reminder and what better visual reminder than a piece of bespoke artwork by a top illustrator. Hey were one of five studios and illustrators chosen and asked to create a suite of images for the generator. The user choses their preferred artist and then creates randomised artwork until they hit upon one they like. This can then be downloaded, saved as a screensaver or printed off for the fridge door the old fashioned way to help with motivation.
You can play with the #MakeItHappen artwork generator yourself here. As you’ll see at the end of the post we’ve done ours.

For a Frenchman living (until recently) in London, Eurostar are in many ways the perfect client for Jean Jullien. Add to the mix they’re celebrating their 20th birthday and were looking to poke some gentle fun at the differences between the Brits and the French and and you’ve got pretty much the perfect brief for Monsieur Jullien.
For the anniversary #BetterCloser campaign, Jean was tasked with illustrating five anecdotal observations as to how Eurostar has shifted the Anglo/French perceptions and relations. Jean was asked to inject his trademark humour to proceedings and created a series of brilliant illustrations.
The campaign, art directed and masterminded by The Clearing, is now live and adorning huge billboards at both Kings Cross and Gare du Nord. It can also be seen extensively within the stations and a short animation is running on the escalators. Très bon.

'FOUND IT' is the 2014 Debenhams Christmas Campaign; created by Nina Hunter and commissioned by JWT London.
Nina was involved from the concept stage where the "found it" idea was in its primary form. Going through various design stages and looks - from a bold to a more decorative style, the result is a simple effective design. The idea was to create the "found it" keyword from beautiful Christmas icons, Nina says "It was a fantastic experience working with the art directors at JWT. I enjoyed the creative process and loved how each stage was unique and beautiful. I'm very proud of this highlight in my career".
