Kate Forrester was asked by McDonalds to help design their latest advertising campaign. Based on the A-Z of McDonalds, Kate created these beautiful illustrations of individual letters which each represent a different aspect of the brands ethics. As well as the ABC images Kate was also asked to design these huge illustrations to appear on the sides of the McDonalds lorries too – they’re the prettiest lorries we’ve seen around! Keep your eyes peeled for all of these adverts and many more to come. Kate Forrester is represented The Artworks

We are thrilled that Melvyn Evans’s fantastic artwork ‘Thames People and Tides’ won the silver award in The London Transport SERCO prize for Illustration competition. From hundreds of entries, Melvyn’s artwork was awarded the silver prize.
The theme of this year’s competition was the River Thames, entries had to feature the river as a central feature of London and London life. The brief was to create an artwork that was colourful and positively portrayed the river as an exciting and varied place for Londoners and visitors alike, which Melvyn’s artwork did wonderfully. Melvyn’s illustration will be used across Transport For London’s upcoming advertising campaigns. Melvyn Evans is represented by New Division
