Butlins Resorts

Clear and crisp map illustrations by Mike Hall are commissioned for a visitors app.

Mike was commissioned by Bourne Leisure - the owners of the famous British holiday resort chain Butlins, to design vector-based, isometric maps for each of their resorts - Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness.

To be used as an app for visitors, they were drawn entirely using Adobe Illustrator and were designed to be fully interactive, easily navigable and geographically accurate, with georeferencing applied by the app developers for accurate GPS data. Mike adds, "They were also intended to be bright, colourful and retro to match their new branding.

Another key feature of the app reveals itself when the user zooms into each map: the central Pavilion roof 'opens' to reveal the shop and restaurant layout beneath and the names and unit numbers of each accommodation block appear."

Vanessa Dell – Lack of Diversity

Inside Housing Magazine commission Vanessa Dell for an illustration exposing the lack of diversity in housing leadership.

The piece was inspired by the film poster art for 'Being John Malkovich' which involved making a crowded composition for the double page spread. For this brief the people needed to be of different ethnic backgrounds and all holding the same identical mask, hinting at the domination of white, middle-aged men in the housing leadership sector.

Iconic Shoes

An attractive postcard book by Fashionary is illustrated with the work of Portugal's Antonio Soares.

The client invited Antonio to illustrate some iconic shoes for a unique postcard project consisting of sixteen detachable cards. Each shoe has its own theme too, for example a romantic garden or birds which add a narrative dimension to each artwork. For sale in museums and select shops worldwide, the postcard book is generating much love, especially from fashion and shoe lovers! See the product here.

A Traditional Christmas

Ruth Palmer creates a set of nostalgic seasonal stamps for Jersey Post.

 The Christmas stamps are reminiscent of decades gone by and have just been issued by Jersey Post. Set in the 1950s and 1960s, the artworks depict a traditional festive activity including bringing home the Christmas tree, making the Christmas cake and carol singing; things that bring the family together.

Melanie Gouzinis, Head of Philatelic at Jersey Post, reflects, “Of course, most of these traditions are still going strong today but Ruth Palmer’s interpretation reminds us of the time before computers and mobile phones, when families wore their Sunday best for Christmas dinner and festive patterned jumpers were worn in a non-ironic way!”

The stamps are available to buy here.
