Yehrin Tong for Bombay Sapphire

9 months in the making, The ‘Infused with Imagination’ Installation was created by a team of designers including Yehrin Tong and established photographer and director Richard Foster, known for his work with De Beers, Gucci and Rolls Royce. Inspired by the word ‘infused’, meaning elements bleeding into each other, Yehrin created a dream-like visual that has no beginning or end; rather it feels like an organic mixture of images both natural and mythical. This design has now been turned into a large 3D art installation laid out as a series of sections depicting different pieces of the story. Each illustrated panel is hung separately in an overlapping design, telling the Bombay Sapphire story. The entire artwork uses perspective in that you can only fully appreciate the stunning effect from a specific point in the room. Over 75,000 crystals were used to bring each segment to sparkling life.

Artemis Fowl is revealed!

Leading illustrator Bob Lea represented by Artist Partners, was commissioned to redesign the much coveted cover artwork of the seven cover titles for the Artemis Fowl series, written by Eoin Colfer. The stylish covers which were mainly white illustrations in 3d , were a very unique style and a departure from the old covers.    

The new covers were launched by Penguin - Puffin Books - with the aid of an electronic countdown in the centre of Piccadilly Circus. The author was also there and was orchestrating the countdown for the actual moment of the release of the books, which was then simultaneously launched to all the many Artemis Fowl fans on all the social networking sites and youtube throughout the world....

Bob Lea has also been  commissioned to undertake the  making of a  animated trailer to launch  the books on the  TV,  which he has done very successfully indeed!  And this is just the start of the  marketing campaign !

James Brown produced this brilliant cover for the ‘The Unreliable Life of Harry The Valet’ in collaboration with Meiklejohn artist Piers Sanford.  The combination of James’ retro typography and Piers’ etching created a great Victorian Billboard feel for this true story of the most infamous Victorian Jewel thief.
