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.
The campaign aims to keep children safe on UK's beaches and comprises of a safety pack called 'Hold Tight, Hand Up!' and a music video to support the message. Targeted at the slightly older child who loves to bodyboard, the free pack is full of top tips for parents, a wave guide for children and animated stickers they can attach to bodyboards and beach bags. Duncan created the cool characters and all the art for the different goodies in the pack. The animation was also designed by Duncan; he then directed two 2D animators from Sun & Moon Studios in Bristol with Proximity providing the music and VFX. Watch the video here.
Tracie created a mysterious cityscape that integrates with the 3D watch display towers in the Ted Baker & Moore store on Commercial Street, London. The colours and lighting make it feel like a surreal night scene from a dark comic that fit with Ted Baker’s sharp style and fun approach to all their visuals.

"Mark maker & illustrator. I like to deal with contemporary social issues and love to make work that contains slight dark humour."
"I'm originally from Lincolnshire but have Irish and Scottish family. I now live and work in Birmingham. My inspiration comes from reading books. The last book I read was The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson. A brilliant book.
I love illustrators such as Laura Carlin, Ralph Steadman, Luke Best. There's far too many to mention. I used to collect starwars figures, but I've grown out of it. I dont have any room to collect things. I have a spare room but I've turned into a makeshift studio."
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.
We love this artwork Fortuna Todisco created for Panorama Magazine. This fabulous illustration accompanied an article about Fortuna's career and her creative processes and aspirations.

She is inspired by the people around her and loves to express her observations through her illustrations. Fortuna creates both conceptual and representational artworks and has worked with a variety of clients for fashion and lifestyle commissions.
The mural on the wall is on the outside of the brewery Twisted Barrel Ale. It's a new brewery which has just opened up in Coventry. The imagery on the wall was drawn from an open brief- they wanted a representation of Coventry. Stewart chose to use the story of Lady Godiva and Peeping Tom to depict for the wall painting.
Prior to the bombing during the blitz, Coventry was a real pretty city with a vast amount of Tudor buildings. After the war the council pulled what was left down with a view of rebuilding it and making it a modern town - but it was never finished. As a reference to this Stewart have drawn lots of tudor style buildings based on the remaining ones in Coventry.
The labels design was once again an open brief, though Stewart needed to have connections with Coventry.
On the label design you will see the Tudor buildings, Coventry's three spires, doves (as a reference to Coventry being a city of peace and reconciliation). I drew a lad and a lass in celebration of the tag line 'more folk than punk' from the brewery.

James was commissioned to create a series of 3 posters of Toyota’s ‘Cricket Tech’ as part of their sponsorship of England Cricket. The artworks were to resemble the drawings commonly seen in the development of their cars.
