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.
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.

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.
We’ve been working on our new stationery here at HF towers, something that’s always a tricky thing to do – stock samples, pantone chips, brand identity. It’s a dizzying task. It all began with some clever illustrated portraits of HF staff Tom, Jon and Stuart, created by Jean Jullien. These were then handed over to master-of-design George Bradshaw, who worked them into business card designs, which utilises the Circular typeface by Lineto. GF Smith Colorplan Cool Grey was the stock of choice, which was printed by the good folk at Darwin Press. Patrick Bateman eat your heart out.
