Pete Harrison worked with Havas Worldwide Johannesburg to create this clever campaign for Mr Min. Pete illustrated three spray can shaped artworks, each revealing beautiful inner worlds, designed to show just how much Mr Min can clean. Pete used 3D techniques to create the incredibly detailed scenes.
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.
Patrick George was commissioned by Cinco, Portland USA to provide a range of illustrations as part of a new campaign for Microsoft Global Recruiting.
Entitled "Right Now", the campaign storytelling breaks down into five themes about areas of work, such as natural user interfaces and cloud computing.
Part of the brief was wanting an irreverent attitude to come through, to be fun, playful and provocative, without being glib.

No stranger to working with some major charities, Ben Tallon uses his skills as illustrator and art director to launch Xpress; an awareness campaign to raise money for the The Campaign Against Living Miserably.
CALM works to prevent male suicide in the UK, and after meeting the charity, Ben was given a blank canvas to direct a campaign focused on raising money and awareness. His response has come from an urge to share the benefits of his own artistic expression, and so along with the support of his fellow creatives, Ben has launched Xpress.
On May 3rd 2013, Ben's company Quenched Music will release an exclusive album from which 100% of proceeds will go directly to the charity. It will feature the best of new UK and international music and some overseas 'heavyweights' who will be announced soon. Also featuring men working in the arts, Ben and the team now have the support of Stephen Merchant, Danny Dyer, Jon McClure and more. In addition, a campaign newspaper will be released alongside the album containing all interviews and features including the portrait above. It was created to support an exclusive interview with Steve for the campaign in which he discusses comedy, growing up, art and his movie career. The Xpress website will also showcase contemporary art, design, comedy, illustration, film and poetry.
Please support the cause through the crowd funding campaign here.
