Serge Seidlitz Jigsaw Puzzles

Serge Seidltz was commissioned by Educational Insights to design 8 children's jigsaw puzzles. Each puzzle is made up of between 24 and 48 pieces with words printed on one side and parts of the picture on the other.
The puzzles work by choosing a piece, reading the word on it and searching the puzzle tray for the synonym to that word and then setting the piece in place. Finishing the puzzle then reveals the hidden picture.

Oscar Wilson – Gil Scott-Heron Book Cover

Oscar Wilson has been working with Canongate Books on the cover art for the
postumous memoir of Gil Scott Heron entitled The Last Holiday. Oscar worked
closely with the team at Canongate to create this iconic image of Gil made
from selected poems and lyrics.

Gil Scott-Heron's Publisher and friend Jamie Byng said of the work: "I think
Oscar has created an iconic image of Gil and one that will become widely
known and it makes the whole book come together beautifully. Words were so
important in Gil's life and he loved playing with them so having this image
of him in which he is literally made of words seems perfectly apt especially
for a memoir which is made up of his words."

Haemophilia Monster

Sholto Walker has completed a fun yet sobering commission for a leading specialist UK advertising agency. The brief was to design a mostly friendly monster to represent the rare blood disorder haemophilia that predominately affects males. The aim of the campaign was to inform young children who suffer with the disease about how to live safely with it. The character had to be represented in a positive and entertaining way while reflecting the particular nature of the disorder as closely as possible. Sholto says " This I did by designing a bright red pet monster, Hemon, that was, while potentially threatening, mostly benign and friendly if looked after and treated with respect by his friend, Max, the ten-year-old boy he lives with. I drew the characters as vignettes in various scenarios and activities and also produced three four-page comic strips featuring Max and Hemon in various simple short stories."

Renault Olympics Poster

This piece of imagery by super talent Danny Allison has been created for Publicis Ireland for client Renault. Danny had one day to complete the poster, an extremely tight deadline which involved a working night, but with a successful result. Danny says "(The artwork was) all hand done, screen printed, painted. The man who is on the poster got in touch to say he loved it (Mark Rohan who is (the) Irish Paralympic hand-cycling champion)". Renault are so pleased they are also having a print to hang in their headquarters.
